Danes have model forecaster

The Danish Hydraulic Institute (DHI) has an operational model of Danish waters, which can be used for operational forecasts.

The model exploits the results of the European Commission's MAST II project, DYNOS (DYnamics Of Connecting Seas, 1994-1997), which established a three-dimensional, hydro-dynamical, large-area model of the North Sea, the Baltic Sea and the Danish waters.

The Danish model is being used to monitor the water environment and is run by the DHI on behalf of the Danish Ministry of Environment and Energy as part of the Danish National Programme for monitoring the water environment. To produce its new operational model, the DHI drew directly on the model's set-up and calibration results, as well as experience gathered during the DYNOS project.

The main objective of the Danish project, to which the DHI contributes, is to determine, through combined monitoring and modelling, how water moves through the boundaries of different seas and how salinity and the concentration of nutrients are also affected in these areas.
