A regional model coupling a regional atmosphere to a regional ocean is proposed for kilometer-scale (and potentially finer) resolution simulation of coupled air-sea processes 

This includes waves, sea spray, upper ocean mixing, and heat/moisture/carbon exchange, with a focus on hurricane development. This will improve process-level understanding and modeling of these processes. 

This regional coupled model is built directly into a seamless modeling framework used for routine weather and climate modeling, allowing advances from the fine-scale coupled regional model to directly improve these applications. 

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS)
