An observational network, dynamical models and data assimilation schemes are the three components of an ocean prediction system. Its configuration for a regional real-time forecasting system proceeds in three phases: in the initial phase, identification of dominant scales, processes and interactions is obtained; in the intermediate phase, a clear resolution of the important dynamics and events must be reflected in the nowcasts and forecasts; the third phase is designed to validate the predictive capability of the forecasts. Observing System Simulation Experiments are essential to the development of the regional ocean prediction system.
