Plymouth Ocean Forecasting Centre

About us

Plymouth Ocean Forecasting Centre (POFC) is an international centre of expertise in ocean modelling. 

We deliver computer simulations of ocean state both for the past (hindcast) and the future (forecast), which have a wide range of applications in operational oceanography. 

We provide a fully integrated end-to-end solution from data collection, research, model development and configuration to end-user training. We work globally and have created regional ocean models for the Arabian Sea (including the Gulf), the western Arctic Ocean, the Black and Celtic Seas.
