Using the experience of numerical weather prediction during the 1950's and 1960's as a model, a case is presented for development during the 1980's of an ocean prediction capability. Examples selected from recent research at the Naval Postgraduate School are used to illustrate some aspects of the theoretical background, representation of physical processes, observational-support systems and the justification for a first-generation ocean prediction system
This report is based on a talk presented at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, Princeton, NJ during November 1979.
