WavyOcean is a WebGIS based dynamic visualization system showing outputs of the China Sea Multiscale Ocean Modelling System (CMOMS). CMOMS is a coupled physics-biogeochemistry modelling system, the first of this kind in China Seas developed in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
The visualization platform of WavyOcean displays oceanic physical and biogeochemical fields at both climatic and real-time (1992-2011) scale in the GBA ocean, China Seas, and western Pacific Ocean. The 3D environmental variables include the ocean current, temperature, salinity, nitrate concentration, chlorophyll, dissolved oxygen, marine organic matter and terrestrial organic matter. The platform also demonstrates hindcasting atmospheric variables of wind, temperature and pressure field from 2015 to 2019. The platform supports both data and image downloads.
