ODYSSEA ALGERIA Flow

Overview

The Algerian Observatory Forecast System provides regional 2-days forecast regarding ocean hydrodynamics. These forecasts are generated daily by local observatory with a horizontal resolution of 1/120º (~800m).

The system uses the numerical model MOHID to provide the forecast, running a 3D baroclinic model with 12 Sigma (first 19.4m) and 63 Cartesian (until bottom) layers.

The Open Boundary Conditions (OBCs) are defined, by superimposing the Marine Copernicus Global Physics, 0.08 degrees resolution, low frequency solution, with the high-frequency solution (tide) from Global Tide Model FES2014. The atmospheric boundary conditions, for momentum and heat, are imposed using the DWD ICON Europe 7Km Solution and NOAA Global Forecast System 0.25º.

Outputs are provided in hourly base at surface for sea level and currents.
