Ecohydrodynamic model of the Baltic Sea

The ecohydrodynamic model was developed at the Institute of Oceanography University of Gdansk (IOUG). It contains two essential parts - hydrodynamic the M3D_UG and ecosystem part the ProDeMo.

Model works as pre-operational one at the southern Baltic area and the Gulf of Gdansk as well as the Pomeranian Bay. The results are available on the web site . The model was developed at the advanced level and established in internet during BALTDER project.

The model cooperates on line with server at Interdisciplinary Computer Modelling Centre Warsaw University to get meteorological weather forecast in digital form to evaluate 60 hours forecasts (updated every 4 hours) for physical, chemical and biological parameters of the sea. The forecasts deliver the surface current fields, the temperature and salinity sea water.

Moreover, the model forecasting fields of the nutrients: nitrates, ammonia, phosphates, silicates, total nitrogen and total phosphorus, also dissolved oxygen and phytoplankton biomass.
