Scottish Shelf Model : Development of Clyde Sub-Model

Simon Waldman, Rory O'Hara Murray, A. Sabatino, Alejandro Gallego

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A new high-resolution hydrodynamic model has been developed covering the Clyde Sea. This report describes the model setup in detail. Initial validation of the model is mixed, suggesting that it correctly predicts the broad patterns of water structure and behaviour in the region but cannot currently be fully relied upon for precise time-specific predictions. Further development and validation is recommended.
