Weather Forecasting is a well-established activity, which has been servicing the public for more than a century. Recent developments in operational oceanography have made it possible to produce similar forecasting for marine systems. DHI has produced a web based prototype for a comprehensive marine water forecasting system, which has been running since June 1 2001. The system describes the 3-dimensional distribution of both physical, chemical and biological parameters. The system is based on DHIs comprehensive experience with storm surge forecasting that dates back to the late 1980-ties when MIKE 21 was installed at the Danish Meteorological Institute for Storm Surge forecasting of the North Sea.
The forecast is available in English at www.waterforecast.com and in Danish at www.vandudsigten.dk .
