Towards an operational prediction system for the North Atlantic European Coastal Zones
Scientific Programme
The TOPAZ Consortium consists of the following partners:
  • Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC), Norway,
  • Laboratoire des Ecoulements Géophysiques et Industriels at Université Joseph Fourier (UJF-LEGI), France,
  • Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), Germany,
  • Collecte Localisation Satellites, (CLS), France.

Following the encouraging results of its predecessor the DIADEM MAST-III project, TOPAZ aims at providing real-time forecasts for both the physics and ecology of the North Atlantic ocean.
TOPAZ develops advanced data assimilation systems for a coupled primitive equation ocean circulation and marine ecosystem model for the North Atlantic and the Nordic Seas with enhanced resolution in the European coastal zones, assimilating satellite data available for real time operational use.

The observations used are satellite observed Sea Level Anomaly (SLA), Sea Surface Temperature (SST), Sea-ice concentrations from SSMI and Coriolis in-situ data.

The major outcomes in terms of products are short term forecasts issued weekly, open for public access and end users.
