The numerical ecosystem model of the Baltic Sea 3D CEMBS allows tracking time and space changes of physical and biogeochemical parameters of the marine environment. An essential element of this project is to develop numerical methods for predicting the emergence of threats to our coastal area (for example, blooms of algae, sea surface height changes, ice cover reach, and others), which will become a modern tool that can help in managing the environment. The diagnosis of the processes in this project is not only important from the scientific point of view but also allows a deeper understanding of the Baltic ecosystem functioning.
It is also of a great importance for this group of people, which plans to spend free time near our coast. Operational model allows the information flow about the state of the marine environment in real-time, and 48 hours in advance. The effects of the proposed project can become a potent tool for policymakers and local authorities, especially in emergency situations.
Detailed information about 3D CEMBS can be found in the Model section.
