Presentation Abstract

LiveOcean is a daily forecast model of ocean conditions for the coastal waters of Washington, Oregon, and Vancouver Island, as well as the Salish Sea. It is forced with realistic tides, winds, rivers, and ocean conditions. The model simulates biogeochemical properties including phytoplankton, nitrate, dissolved oxygen, dissolved inorganic carbon, and alkalinity, up to 3 days in the future. It is used for the prediction of ocean acidification events in coastal estuaries, and for harmful algal bloom events on coastal beaches. I will describe the model construction, comparisons with observations, uses, and future developments.

LiveOcean: a daily forecast model of biogeochemistry in Washington marine waters
