In line with our commitment to improve data access, BODC announce the launch of our numerical model data portal. This provides searching, visualisation and data download mechanisms for numerical model data.

Initially the portal is populated with output from the Coastal Flooding by Extreme Events (CoFEE) project. As the data from more models become available they will be added to this portal.

Numerical models

Numerical models are mathematical simulations of environmental processes based on understandings gained from direct observations and/or theoretical analysis. They help scientists and managers to predict, understand and adapt to changes that may affect people and their environment.
