attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS): Main Hawaiian Islands. Best time series, taking the data from the most recent run available. Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) 7-day, 3-hourly forecast for the region surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands at approximately 4-km resolution. Boundary conditions provided by the global, 1/12-degree (~9-km) HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM). Atmospheric forcing generated by the Weather Research and Forecasting (Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF)) model for the region surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands (WRF_HI) at approximately 6-km resolution. Tide forcing uses the Oregon State University (OSU) Tidal Prediction Software (OTPS) Topography Experiment (TOPEX)/Poseidon global inverse solution (TPXO) to derive barotropic tidal elevation and velocity. Data are assimilated over the previous 3 days using all available observations to improve the model estimate of current ocean state (its "nowcast") before forecasts are run. Assimilated observations may include satellite-based sea surface temperatures from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), or Operational Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Analysis (OSTIA); satellite-based sea surface height from Archiving, Validation and Interpretation of Satellite Data in Oceanography (AVISO); surface currents from Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) high-frequency radios (High Frequency Radar (HFR)); and in-situ water temperature and salinity profiles from Array for Real-time Geostrophic Oceanography (ARGO) floats and ocean glider autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV). While considerable effort has been made to implement all model components in a thorough, correct, and accurate manner, numerous sources of error are possible. As such, please use these data with the caution appropriate for any ocean related activity.
