Cryosphere Applications: Navy Earth System Prediction Capability

10.18.21 @ 1 p.m. ET
ONLINE

The Navy Earth System Prediction Capability (Navy-ESPC) ensemble system provides atmospheric, ocean, and sea ice ensemble forecasts that benefit U.S. Navy applications, including Arctic defense, ship routing, and resupply missions. Navy-ESPC became operational in August 2020. This talk will describe how remote sensing observations, including from NASA's ICESat-2 satellite, have helped inform, validate, and verify the sea ice components of Navy-ESPC.

Richard Allard leads the Nearshore and Coupled Model Systems section of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Ocean Dynamics and Prediction Branch at NASA's Stennis Space Center. New capabilities developed under his section are transitioned to operational partners at the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC), which runs all the Navy’s ocean-ice-wave models. With 30+ years of experience with Arctic sea ice modeling, including fully coupled global ice-ocean-atmosphere-wave prediction systems with data simulation, Allard serves as a member of the IARPC Sea Ice Team, NRL’s Sea Ice Prediction Network team, and the U.S. Arctic Observing Network sea ice thickness team. As an ICESat-2 early adopter, his present research focus is modeling landfast ice in the Arctic.
