Coastal Ocean Monitoring and Predicting System (COMPS)

Coastal Ocean Monitoring and Predicting System (COMPS)

COMPS consists of an array of instrumentation both offshore and along Florida's west coast, combined with numerical circulation models, and builds upon existing in-situ measurements and modeling programs. In addition, COMPS links to the USF Remote Sensing Laboratory, which collects real-time satellite imagery. Data and model products are disseminated here in real-time. Site also includes links to other ocean observing resources and some educational resources.
