Abstract

This report (SOFT_WP32_rep1.pdf) describes the first version of the wave forecasting code developed within Work Package 3, task 3.2 (implementation of a hybrid SOFT tracking system) of the SOFT Project. The forecasting of westward propagating signals (planetary waves or westward-travelling eddies), using the fields of tracked wave from Work Package 3, task 3.1, is one of the two components of the hybrid system which is the overall deliverable of task 3.2. The results presented here are provisional and are likely to be replaced as research proceeds. Related to this report are two other documents:- the progress report on task 3.1 released in January 2003(SOFT_WP31_report.pdf), which presents the rationale to the study and gives ample details on the scheme adopted for the fitting of elementary waves (according to a Gaussian wave shape model) to altimeter data (see also the paper by Cipollini, 2003);- the handbook SOFT_WP31_handbook.pdf describing the suite of MATLAB programs developed within Work Package 3, task 3.1 of the SOFTProject, for the tracking of large-scale, westward propagating features (planetary waves or westward-travelling eddies) in altimeter data and the removal of the identified features from the datasets.
