Multi Model Ensemble (MME)
In addition to its proprietary models, the BSH runs a multi-model ensemble (MME), which utilises various, already existing operational forecasts in the Northwest shelf (NWS) and Baltic Sea (BAL). The employed forecasts are compared with the mean of the model ensemble to show the degree of agreement and the deviations of different physical oceanographic parameters. The participating authorities and institutes benefit from the MME as it provides a supplement to the dedicated validation of a single model. The weighted average of the model products also provides the best estimate for some parameters.
The MME was and is being developed within the Copernicus Marine Service.
