Scottish Shelf Waters Reanalysis Service Launch Event | Tuesday, 03. November 2020

Come and hear about the new 25-year hindcast of the Scottish Shelf Model (SSM) and network with other SSM users.

About this Event

Please note that this event is currently planned as a physical event but the current COVID-19 situation might require us to host it online.

The SSM is a numerical hydrodynamicmodel covering the Scottish continental shelf waters. The highly resolved Scottish coastline enables the circulation in coastal and inshore areas to be modelled at a high resolution.

One of the most recent data products, scheduled to be released in November 2020, is the (SSW-RS), a downstream service of the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS). The SSW-RS will provide a 25 year (1993-2017) hindcast model run which will be available for download at any time.

This information event will include (not exclusively and subject to change):

  • Information on SSM and the reanalysis service
  • Technical details of the model setup and forcing
  • Getting started with SSW-RS
  • What can SSW-RS do for you?
  • Discussion and networking

We are aiming for a physical event held at Victoria Quay in Edinburgh. However, considering the current COVID-19 situation we might decide that a virtual event is the only sensible alternative.

We understand that this might influence your decision to sign up to this event. For this reason we ask you to register to reserve a place if you are interested in the event. We will let everyone who has registered know by 21 September 2020 whether this event will be hosted physically or virtually. At that point, you will have an opportunity to cancel your registration if the format of the event no longer allows you to attend.

If you have any questions about the SSM or about this event, do not hesitate to contact Louise Campbell (email)
