USERS ARE REMINDED TO USE THIS 1KM NCOM DATA WITH CAUTION. THE MODEL WAS
INITIATED ON 18 MARCH SO IT HAS NOT TOTALLY SPUN UP, NOR HAS IT BEEN FULLY
EVALUATED FOR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES. THESE FORECASTS ARE BEING PROVIDED
AS PRELIMINARY GUIDANCE TO SUPPORT EMERGENCY REQUESTS FOR HIGH-RESOLUTION
OCEAN INFORMATION. NAVOCEANO EXPECTS TO CONTINUE TO MAKE CHANGES AND
IMPROVEMENTS OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.
