The ocean and sea ice modeling activities at NERSC focus on processes and dynamics, data assimilation, and coupled ocean-biogeochemical studies. Together, the team has developed the TOPAZ system, the official Arctic component of the Copernicus Marine Services, and has established a leading European position for operational ocean forecasting in the Arctic and Nordic Seas. The TOPAZ system is built on the HYCOM ocean model, which has been used at NERSC for more than 15 years and constitutes the core of our ocean modeling and data assimilation activities.
