Tampa Bay Coastal Ocean Model (TBCOM) is an application of the unstructured grid Finite Volume Community Ocean Model (FVCOM) for the Tampa Bay region, including the Sarasota Bay, the Intra-coastal Water way, and all of the inlets connecting these bodies with the adjacent Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The model is nested within a lagrer domain West Florida Coastal Ocean Model (WFCOM). Shown above is a movie of TBCOM simulated surface currents and sea level (one day hindcast three day nowcast/forecast).
