On August 8, 2001, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Ocean Service (NOS) debuted its first operational forecast model system to provide short-term water-level forecast guidance to marine users in the Chesapeake Bay. The NOS Chesapeake Bay Operational Forecast System (CBOFS) was developed to improve and expand water-level information for the maritime community. CBOFS runs four times per day to generate model forecast guidance of water-levels throughout the bay for 24 hours into the future. The CBOFS model, the result of a multi-year joint project between the NOS Coast Survey Development Laboratory and the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS),was designed to promote safe and efficient navigation within U.S. waters.
