Synthetic Structure for Asymmetric Eddies in the Ocean

A system and method is provided for an asymmetric formulation whereby multiple water masses mix together and generate an 'eddy-like' feature. Given the core and the shore profiles, embodiments produce a three-dimensional eddy representation for a particular ocean region based on three (core, inshore and offshore) specified profiles. The formulation employs parameter-based feature models and is generalized to ocean regions having asymmetric eddy water masses. Embodiments apply to regions in the global coastal ocean, providing nowcasting and forecasting in any oceanic region where eddies are part of the overall circulation. Examples of such eddies are off of Cape São Tomé (CST) and Cape Frio (CF) along the southeastern coast of Brazil.
