Japan Report National Forecasting System (MOVEMRI.COM) and Japan Working Team - Progress in 2012-2014 - T. Kuragano (GOVST) M. Kamachi (GOVPatron) Y. Fujii(OSE-TT), N. Usui (COSS-TT), S. Ishizaki (ET-OOFS), Y. Takaya, T. Toyoda, K. Sakamoto JMA/MRI
Recent Progress (1/2) MOVE/MRI.COM-G2 and -SETO systems will be in operation early 2015. OSE for Argo floats and TAO/TRITON array was done (Fujii et al., 2014). Impact of Aquarius SSS data was examined (Toyoda et al., in revision). Seawater mass variation was examined to detect steric component from altimeter data (Kuragano et al., 2014).
Recent Progress (2/2) Analysis and predicted variables have been available since August 2014 for research and commercial users through the Japan Meteorological Business Support Center. Application studies are in progress in collaboration with related organizations. –Fishery, Debris, and Radiation contamination 18 th Japan data assimilation summer school was held in August 2014 as GOV Outreach activity.

Increase of ACC against OSE-XBO (0-300m average) The accuracy of TS fields is generally increased with the increase in the number of assimilated Argo profiles. The complementary impact of TRITON on T is larger than that of Argo floats in the western tropical Pacific (OSE-XAF has higher T accuracy than OSE-XTT). The increase of ACCs for both TS with the increase of the number of Argo assimilated is closer to linear in NINO3 (Enhanced deployment of Argo floats is desirable).

Ocean mass correction for SLA SL variation caused by ocean mass variation is examined to steric height component from altimetric SLA. Local mass variation as a response to seasonal water flux, wind stress and surface pressure variation is examined using a barotropic global ocean model. The results are well consistent with seasonal mean variation of altimeteric SLA minus steric height. The results are adopted for the correction of SLA data in MOVE/MRI.COM-G2.

18 th Data Assimilation Summer School 19 - 22 Aug. 2014, in Mutsu, Aomori Prefecture As an Outreach of GOV It continues from 1997 under the support of Japan Marine Science Foundation & JAMSTEC. 3 days course of fundamental lectures, practices and applications Participants BBQ Party Lectures
Tsujino et al. (2010) MOVE-G2 Tri-polar grid Toyoda et al. (2013) OGCM, sea-ice model MOVE/MRI.COM-G2, tri-polar coordinate Thermodynamics based on Mellor and Kantha (1989) (1-layer) Dynamics (and other processes) based on Los Alamos sea-ice model (CICE; Hunke and Ducowicz, 2002) (Elastic-Viscous-Plastic rheology) Five thickness categories are set in a grid (0.6, 1.4, 2.4, 3.6 m) Albedo of sea Ice/snow is defined by near-IR and visible radiations: the albedo takes smaller value when ice melts in consideration with existence of melt ponds.
RMSE differences and RMSDs in the Eq. Section Impacts are commonly large around the thermocline in the NINO3 region. There is a similarity among the three impacts depicted above. (The distributions of the impacts are not determined by the property of the observations.) The distribution of RMSDs between OSEs averaged for upper 300 m are basically similar to the distribution of the corresponding RMSE differences. (The correction by DA generally improves the accuracy.) TT impacts (intrinsic) TT impacts Argo impacts

MOVE/MRI.COM-SETO for coastal high tide prediction Kuroshio pass variation is one of the causes of coastal high tide. Short-term variation of the Kuroshio pass should be analyzed/predicted and its detailed impact on coastal SL should be represented. Incremental 4DVAR system has been developed in MRI, and is in preparation for operation in the JMA HQs.
