New wave forecasting tool – News-Times: News

Local scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration lab on Pivers Island are developing a model to forecast wave activity in Albemarle and Pamlico sounds.

Dr. Mark Fonseca, chief of the Applied Ecology and Restoration Research Branch at the lab, and Amit Malhotra, geographic information system scientist at the lab, are developing a wave exposure model, or WEMO, for the National Weather Service office in Newport. This program will use data from 440 locations and 90 wind scenarios over eight forecast zones to predict wave activity in the Albemarle-Pamlico Sound area.
