Information about OceanWeb
Welcome to the SMHI OceanWeb site
OceanWeb is a tool developed at SMHI for visualising model data (forecasts primarily) and to a certain degree observational data.
OceanWeb is under the umbrella of BOOS, the international co-operation on operational oceanography in the Baltic.
In focus here are forecasts from three different operational models, producing daily 48-hour forecasts.
HIROMB is a three-dimensional operational ocean circulation model with resolution 3 and 1 nautical miles.
SWAN is a third generation wave model with resolution 11x11 km.
HIRLAM is a Short Range Weather Forecasting model forcing the ocean circulation and wave model presented here. The resolution used for this purpose is 11x11 km.
Presented under Sea Levels are also data from other institutes.
