Water Forecasting at DHI

  Try DHI's new Online Water Forecasting

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 and in Danish at .
