Research Institution
Proposed is the innovative solution for the development of a unified information structure for a system of automated information tools and methodology to efficiently provide output to oceanographic and meteorological forescast models. Involved is the development of metadata fields using sets of automated information tools. The metadata bases will use existing algorithms for browsing, visualization, and diagnostic analysis. New rules, based on the manual identification/analysis system, will be developed. The metadata fields portraying specific oceanographic/ meteorological features will be updated as new information becomes available. From the sequential analysis of specific systems, information on past movement, shape, and intensity can be shown. From this information, using diagnostic analysis rules, the driving physical forces affecting these systems can beinferred, providing what may be a major breakthrough in oceanographic and meteorological forecasting.
