A comprehensive numerical forecasting system for the physical state of the North and Baltic Sea
is operated at BSH. Based on this operational model system forecasts for water level, currents, temperature,
salinity and sea ice are produced and archived on a daily basis which provide essential input to drift and
dispersion models applied on demand.
A variety of products is derived from the ocean forecasts which provide essential support
to BSH internal services like the water level prediction and storm surge warning service
or the ice service as well as to several national institutions, e.g., the Central Command
for Maritime Emergency Germany, the German Navy or the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger.
Moreover various users are supplied with model derived products in form of images, tables or file download.
