Case Study: USGS/NOAA Total Water Level and Coastal Change Forecast

Next-generation real-time oceanographic instrumentation

USGS is deploying Smart Moorings to collect real-time water level data. This information will be used to assess the skill of the USGS/NOAA Total Water Level and Coastal Change Forecast, which provides real-time forecasts of water levels and coastal change along nearly 3,000 miles of the U.S. Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
