Weather Research and Forecasting Model

Version: 3.8, 2016

To predict the weather system and to forecast the cyclonic events. It is highly useful to derive the weather parameters for numerical ocean models


The Princeton Ocean Model (POM) is a community general numerical model for ocean circulation that can be used to simulate and predict currents, temperatures, salinities and other water properties.


It uses to predict the possible route, or trajectory , a pollutant might follow in or on a body of water, such as in an oil spill.


It uses to simulates erosion and sedimentation rates under either steady currents or the combined and time – dependent influence of waves and currents.


It uses to design data assessment for coastal and offshore structure, optimization of port layout and coastal protection measures, cooling water, desalination and recirculation analysis, environmental impact assessment of marine infrastructures, water forecast for safe marine operations and navigation, coastal flooding and storm surge warnings,

MIKE 21 Boussinesq Waves

It uses to Standard port agitation simulations in shallow water and Addressing wave concerns in larger areas.

MIKE21-Oil Spill

It uses to  modelling the fate of oil discharged or accidentally spilled in lakes, estuaries and coastal areas or to the open ocean.

MIKE21-Particle Tracking

It uses to modelling of the transport and determine the fate of dissolved, suspended and substances discharge in lakes, estuaries and coastal areas or at the open sea.

MIKE21- Shoreline Morphology

It uses important effects from structures on coastal morphology. These process include wave sheltering, reflection and diffraction, as well as large-scale flow circulation and gradual down drift recovery of the littoral drift.
