dc.description.abstractThe U.S. Navy is aggressively pursuing mesoscale atmospheric modeling. The Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS) has been developed by the Naval Research Lab in Monterey, California to meet this task. A forecast system employing COAMPS, called the Tactical Atmospheric Mesoscale System- Real Time (TAMS-RT), is currently being field tested at two of the Navy's major regional weather facilities in Manama, Bahrain and San Diego, California. Mesoscale modeling is a complex process that requires detailed knowledge of mesoscale forcing and responses, as well as a capable data display system to make the best use of this new capability. While the challenge of interpretation of forecasts on the mesoscale has increased, the time available for producing forecasts has, if anything, decreased. Optimal methods of evaluation and display are needed that enable a forecaster to rapidly, yet skillfully complete this process. This thesis illustrates analysis techniques to aid in rapidly evaluating the utility of any given mesoscale forecast and proposes optimal methods for 3-D visualization and interpretation of various weather parameters. Using these techniques and methods, TAMS-RT performance is then evaluated for critical mesoscale weather phenomena as defined by NPMOC San Diego, including the mesoscale weather effects associated with frontal passages and the Catalina Eddyen_US
