Coastal Marine Modeling Branch

As a branch within the NOAA Office of Coast Survey , the CMMB develops computer models that forecast oceanic variables (sea level, currents, temperature, salinity, etc.) in U.S. coastal regions. These models can be grouped into three categories: tidal models, storm surge models, and operational forecast systems.

The NOAA Water Initiative calls for integrated prediction of river, ocean, and ice dynamics. This requires an investment in research and collaboration with scientists across the board, both at NOAA and academic partners, in order to reach the goals of accurate forecasting within U.S. marine and riverine areas.
