This module considers the meteorological, climate, hydrological and oceanographic modelling together.
Second Year Results
Four basic type of numerical models were implemented or upgraded, calibrated and validated in the Montenegrin region during the second year of the project as a continuation of the work of the first year, in order to subsequently couple them for the climate scenario predictions. In particular the numerical models finalized this year were:
The implementation of all these numerical models consists of the basis for all the activities integrated in the numerical models scheduled for the last year of the project.
First Year Results
During the first year of the project the non-hydrostatic numerical meteorological model (NMM) has been implemented nested in the existing mesoscale model for the large Montenegro area. A new algorithm of data assimilation based upon Ensemble Square Root Filter (EnSRF) was developed to be used in the existing mesoscale model to assimilate in situ surface data sets. In addition the Hydrological Numerical Prediction Model (HNPM) has been coupled with the NMM.
The Adriatic forecasting system has been upgraded to run daily and the preliminary work has been carried out for the introduction of the tides in the marine circulation model. The analysis of the seasonal circulation variability has been done from the model historical data set.
The hydraulic qualitative and quantitative model of the Bojana river has been implemented, calibrated and validated. The main characteristics of the sewage system of the Ulcinj town have been collected.
The development and implementation of models for the generation and propagation of waves and for the interaction with wave-infrastructures and wave-coastline has been carried on large and small scales. Preliminary test cases have been studied;
In order to downscale climate scenarios, a software has been developed for the nested Nonhydrostatic numerical Meteorological Model (NMM) and the Hydrological Numerical Prediction Model (HMPB) that is capable to access the global climate fields from IPCC scenarios and uses them as lateral forcing for NMM.
