|Data set name|
North-east Atlantic Operational Model
|Data holding centre||Marine Institute|
|Time period||Atlantic Operational Model|
North Atlantic from Bay of Biscay to Iceland but mostly within Irish Exclusive Economic Zone.
Date and time; Air pressure; Wave direction; Temperature of the water column; Wave height and period statistics; Salinity of the water column
Anemometers; wave recorders; water temperature sensor; CTD
The hydrodynamic model, ROMS (Regional Ocean Modeling System), is run for a domain that covers a significant portion of the northeast Atlantic at a resolution of 2.5 km and with 40 vertical levels.7-day forecasts of ocean temperature, salinity and currents are generated for research purposes and for comparison with measured data. We use NCEP GFS atmospheric forcing and our model is nested within the MERCATOR North Atlantic model. The Marine Institute does not guarantee to make model output available on its web site. The predictions should not be used for safety critical applications.
