The South Atlantic Bight – Gulf of Mexico (SABGOM) model is a three-dimensional marine environment nowcast and forecast model developed by the Ocean Observing and Modeling Group. This system provides predictions of ocean circulation, wave, and atmosphere conditions over the South Atlantic Bight and Gulf of Mexico on a daily basis. The model domain covers the U.S. east coast from New Jersey southward, including the South Atlantic Bight, Gulf of Mexico, northwest corner of the Caribbean Sea, and western edge of the Sargasso Sea.
Maps of model-generated regional dynamics are organized into four sections:
Details of the model and its verification can be found in Xue, Z., J. Zambon, Z. Yao, Y. Liu, and R.
