During the period August 2021 - February 2022 the operational implementation of the high resolution modelling system (i.e., coupled MITgcm-BFM) for the northern Adriatic Sea has been tuned and stabilized: 3-day forecasts are currently produced on a daily basis (TRL between 6 and 7).
The whole modeling chain is available on public GitHub repositories, in particular:
- scripts and files for compiling and building the model executable
- scripts and files for producing the initial and boundary conditions for the simulations, starting from the data provided by the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS);
- scripts for postprocessing model results;
- scripts and files for running the whole operational chain, from the creation of the execution environment, to the graphical output (png images: 2D maps of model fields), and including the model parallel run and the production of the NetCDF output files.
