2002 – EXCELLENCE IN PARTNERING AWARDEE
The Coastal Marine Demonstration Project (CMDP)
Lead PI: Dr. Leonard J. Walstad, Horn Point Laboratory
The Coastal Marine Demonstration Project (CMDP) was a two-year partnership effort, funded by the National Oceanographic Partnership Program, which developed, improved, delivered and evaluated experimental marine forecast products for mariners of the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding coastal ocean. The partnership was a collaboration of academic, private industry, government and private citizens. Two of the experimental models demonstrated in the CMDP are now operational, including NOS’ Chesapeake Bay Operational Forecast System and NWS’ Regional Ocean Forecast System.
