Hydrodynamik und Datenassimilation

Implementations

Our department has implemented its model developments at several national and international governmental agencies:

  • Implementation support for the routine wave forecast system for the North Atlantic, North Pacific and Great Lakes (WAM Cycle 4.5) at the Canadian Meteorological Centre, Montreal, Canada (2004).

  • A coastal wave model on irregular grids in the German coast of the North Sea at the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW), Germany.

  • A suspended particulate matter transport model has been implemented at the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH) for the North and Baltic Sea (2003).

  • Routine wave forecast system for the Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea (WAM Cycle 4) at the NCMR in Athens/Greece (2000).

  • Routine wave forecast model (WAM Cycle 4) for the surrounding waters of the Arabian peninsula at the Omani weather service in Muscat/Oman (1999,2001).

  • Wave refraction model for shallow waters and currents at the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW), Germany.

  • Global WAM wave model in combination with a wave data assimilation system at the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).

  • A nested wave prediction system for the Belgian coast at the Ministry of Public Health and Environment, Belgium.

  • Routine wave prediction for the North Atlantic, North Sea and Baltic Sea (WAM Cycle 4) at the German Weather Center and the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency of Germany (BSH).

  • Routine wave prediction of the Baltic Sea at the Swedish Meteorological Office and Hydrological Institute.

  • Wave and current models as well as wave measurements around the Iberian Peninsula, Spain.

  • A shallow water wave model for routine forecasts in the North and Baltic Sea at the German Military Meteorological and Geographical Office.

Our department has implemented several national and international measurement stations such as:

  • a tower based Wave Monitoring System at the island of Helgoland in the German Bight of the North Sea for the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW), Germany.

  • Wave Rider buoy at the Panama channel.
