Model Analysis Tool

Model of North Sea

The purpose of this tool is to provide simple access to complex model data. Models often contain enormous amounts of data covering large time periods and areas. Therefore, many models are only accessible to experts. This tool attempts to bridge the gap between modelling experts and experts of other fields. An interface is provided to statistically examine and download subsets of model-derived data. Interactive Tool

coastDat Logo

coastDat uses quasi-realistic numerical model systems to describe the meteorological-marine environment for regions where little data exists. Homogeneous, consistent model data (a few kilometres grid width, hourly data output over decades) are available. Access to coastDat portal



COSYNA deals with scientific questions. Data and data products should thereby assist the governmental, economic and public sectors in planning and processing routine tasks and emergency strategies as well as in assessing trends. Access to COSYNA portal
