- The Coast Survey Development Laboratory (CSDL) of the National Ocean Service (NOS) previously developed an Extratropical Surge and Tide Operational Forecast System (ESTOFS) for the US coastal waters (Funakoshi et al. 2013). Now, to extend the capability of ESTOFS to include tropical storm event simulation and ensemble prediction, CSDL is preparing a prototype Hurricane Storm Surge Operational Forecast System (HSSOFS). Under direction from CSDL, a technical team led by Riverside Technology, inc. has developed a hydrodynamic model of the US East Coast and Gulf of Mexico and has validated the model for 10 major tropical and extratropical events. Eventually, this model will form the basis for an operational system on National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) computers. The prototype model described in this document is called NOMAD: NOAA Operational Model with ADCIRC.
