ON THE COVER


Cover

 

Low res pdf (1.62 MB)

The Naval Oceanography mission is to provide environmental battlespace awareness to the operational forces. US Navy R&D focuses on improving knowledge and understanding of the maritime operating environment. This knowledge is used to build environmental prediction systems based on a combination of numerical models and real-time observations. Navy specialists use these systems, which range from global to tactical scales and from ocean and ice to the atmosphere, to provide an environmental picture to our sailors and soldiers, enabling them to exploit environmental variability and operate safely.
