Ocean condition forecasting: risk and uncertainty through the eye of the beholder
Short-term ocean condition forecasts of currents, waves, and winds are a type of ocean data that is becoming more accurate, but questions remain about how good is good enough, who will use it, and how. Find out what we learned from a study about how ocean data providers and users (fishermen) perceive risk and uncertainty regarding ocean forecasts, and how these perceptions impact forecast availability and usefulness. We’ll share an ocean condition forecasting tool that was co-developed with fishermen — Seacast.org — and how this easy-to-use tool will be improved and available in the future via the NANOOS Visualization System.
