(Please click on the map pins below to access the time series plots)
On October 1, 2005, NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) inaugurated the St. John's River Operational Forecast System (SJROFS). This system provides the maritime community with improved short-term predictions of water levels and currents in St. Johns River.
SJROFS is a CO-OPS project aimed at providing improved predictions of water levels and currents in St. Johns River. The objective of SJROFS is to produce hourly nowcasts and four times daily forecasts of total water level and current velocity in the River to be used by the commercial and recreational maritime community. SJROFS will provide important benefits to the local maritime community. SJROFS nowcasts and forecasts will provide an increased margin of safety and maximize the efficiency of maritime commerce throughout the Bay. SJROFS became continuously operational on September 30, 2005. SJROFS is a NOS joint project combining the efforts of CO-OPS and CSDL. For more information, click here.
