Located in Monterey, California, The Marine Meteorology Division (NRL-MRY) is co-located with the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) to support development and upgrades of numerical atmospheric forecast systems and related user products.
NRL-MRY's mission has broadened considerably to include basic research and support to other customers. Collocation with FNMOC allows NRL-MRY access to one of the Navy's largest vector supercomputer mainframe and workstation resources. This access provides real time as well as archived global atmospheric and oceanographic databases for research on-site and at other NRL locations.
Interfaces to the Defense Research and Engineering Network at FNMOC and Defense Simulation Internet at NPS have been established.
