CNAPS is a three-dimensional marine environment nowcast and forecast model developed by the Ocean Observing and Modeling Group. This fully coupled ocean circulation, wave, and atmosphere modeling system predicts conditions over a wide area of the coastal northwest Atlantic Ocean on a daily basis.
Aquaculture application: Users can collect model-generated data on oceanographic and physical parameters that predicts particle movement 72 hours out. Useful to observe and predict oceanographic trends for aquaculture screening and planning.
