Project Description

This project will develop a forecast system, ForLoop, which will pull information from machine learning algorithms and 26 years of open source data on daily sea level fluctuations. ForLoop will allow users to digitize sea level or surface temperature maps to predict Loop Current and Loop Current Eddy locations; and estimate the probability that the current or an eddy will affect a specific location over a range of forecasted periods.
