Forecast Origin Dates
J-SCOPE forecast results for the simulation beginning in April of 2013 are shown through a series of figures below. The first figure depicts the bottom oxygen concentration (ml/l) for the region averaged for June - July of 2013. A time series from the bottom on the coast near one of the OCNMS moorings sited at Cape Elizabeth is shown from the simulation. The model forecasts that hypoxia will develop at this location in July of 2013. The next figure depicts a series of maps of bottom oxygen concentrations as two-month averages for the region. Finally, the climatological cross-section from the Newport Line from Pierce et al, 2012 is compared to the forecast. The forecast projects that the oxygen concentration in the source waters for the upwelling season of 2013 will be lower than the climatology.
