CERA provides NOAA’s upgraded Global Ensemble Forecast System and global track information

On July 27, 2021, the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Central Operations upgraded the Global Extratropical Surge & Tide Operational Forecast System (Global ESTOFS) to version 2. This upgrade contains major improvements in model performance, resolution, and coverage to provide high resolution water level forecast guidance including storm tide for the entire globe.

The CERA visualization system makes this upgrade available through it’s online portal at cera.coastalrisk.live. Additionally to the Global ESTOFS data, CERA will now also display global track information for currently active tropical systems.
