Hydrological Forecasts


    Experimental center for marine forecasts ( ECMP ) MHI NASU is daily performed one day diagnosis and 3 days marine forecasts for sea level fields, sea-surface temperature, salinity and current velocities in the region which includes the marine economic zone of Ukraine. The spatial grid model POM, adapted to their performance, has a resolution of 1 km horizontally for 18 sigma surfaces, at depths ranging from 2.5 to 2100 m. Obtained results are written to the ECMP file server in the format "grd" of applied programms package Golden Software. The delivery frequency of results is 1 time at 6:00 - respectively 0 , 6, 12 and 18 hours of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

    At present it is possible to obtain the results of diagnostic calculations in full for a period of 10 days to one request, submitted by MHI users in the Bank of oceanographic data (BOD). In addition the BOD site has a link to the FTP- server that hosts the results of the diagnosis and prognosis from the current date , interpolated to the levels of 2.5, 10, 50 and 100 m in depth and stored in a binary format of data presentation. Additionally, the http site ECMP is quickly displayed the results of current date forecasts for all parameters at depths of 2.5, 10, 50 and 100 m in depth.

    The represented forecasts are experimental and intended primarily for scientific and methodical works. At present ECMP and BOD are not guarantee the reliability level of the results, required for practical applications, and are not responsible for their inappropriate using.
