Abstract/Description: Operational oceanography is like weather forecasting for the ocean, it provides estimates of ocean variables (temperature, currents, surface height, etc.) for the past, present, and future. There is a systematic focus on sustained operational ocean observing systems, estimates of the current state, short-range predictions and ocean reanalyses. Operational oceanography systems provide routine and fully supported production and delivery of oceanographic information at pre-determined and agreed upon service levels. Nowadays, many operational oceanography systems cover global-to-coastal marine environments, and physical and biogeochemical properties, with active research underway to eventually include ecosystems. Operational oceanography involves and benefits marine industries, service providers, government agencies, and research and development (R&D) providers.
