New Online Archive for PacIOOS Coastal Forecasts
New Online Archive for PacIOOS Coastal ForecastsPosted April 25, 2018
In addition to the most recent PacIOOS wave run-up, six-day high sea level, and harbor surge forecasts, website users can now also view historical plots of the forecasts. The web pages feature a new “Archive” tab, which provides access to all available historical forecast plots, reaching back to the initial implementation of each forecast. Users have the option to choose a date from the calendar, use the slider tool, or the animation buttons to quickly navigate through the images. Two plots are provided for each day, generated at 6:00am and 6:00pm of the local time zone. The archive was created in response to user requests to allow for enhanced comparison and validation of the forecasts with the observed coastal impacts. The implementation was supported by the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Ocean Technology Transition Program.
