This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. There is a practical need to establish numerical oceanographic analyses and forecasts, even though the quantitative knowledge of the processes in the oceans is still somewhat shaky in some subjects. The available oceanographic knowledge was screened and evaluated and the preliminary programs were suggested accordingly. The following main principles were followed in the compilation of the enclosed program outlines and in suggesting the formulas and other approaches: (1) The program must describe the conditions and behavior of the ocean as accurately, and in as much detail, as possible at the present stage of theoretical and empirical knowledge. All programs must be verified and adjusted accordingly. (2) The required accuracy should be evaluated in the light of the knowledge of actual periodic and aperiodic fluctuations in relation to analysis intervals and grid sizes used. (3) The programs should be flexible, allowing improvements and changes to be made when new knowledge becomes available. (4) the main forces causing changes in the surface layers in the sea are of atmospheric origin, and therefore the available meteorological analyses and forecasts should be used to the fullest possible extent. (5) The products of analyses and forecasts should be presented in the form in which they are most useful for the users. In fact, this is a first requirement in disseminating scientific and technical information to users and appliers.
