This work is currently being carried out at the Met-Ocean Laboratory (MOLab) of the Dept. of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Trieste [1] and at Danish Hydraulic Institute-Italia (DHI) with the aim to develop and validate a state-of-the-art model chain for medium resolution (0.10° approximately) wind and wave hindcast simulations over the Mediterranean and Black Seas, consisting of 30 years long hourly data, ready to be used for engineering and environmental applications or even to be used as input for local nested higher resolution simulations (of order of few kilometers or less). The meteorological model used is WRF-ARW [2,3,4], (one of) the most widely used state-of-the-art open-source non-hydrostatic model. The CFSR d093.0 dataset [5,6], hourly data with a spatial resolution of 0.5°, is used as boundary and initial conditions. WWIII [7] and MIKE21 [8] are used as wave models with resolution ranging from 0.1° to 0.03° approximately. The paper will show the results of the preliminary validation tests, both wind and wave, carried out over an entire year, comparing the data of several field stations.

Abstract

This work is currently being carried out at the Met-Ocean Laboratory (MOLab) of the Dept. of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Trieste [1] and at Danish Hydraulic Institute-Italia (DHI) with the aim to develop and validate a state-of-the-art model chain for medium resolution (0.10° approximately) wind and wave hindcast simulations over the Mediterranean and Black Seas, consisting of 30 years long hourly data, ready to be used for engineering and environmental applications or even to be used as input for local nested higher resolution simulations (of order of few kilometers or less). The meteorological model used is WRF-ARW [2,3,4], (one of) the most widely used state-of-the-art open-source non-hydrostatic model. The CFSR d093.0 dataset [5,6], hourly data with a spatial resolution of 0.5°, is used as boundary and initial conditions. WWIII [7] and MIKE21 [8] are used as wave models with resolution ranging from 0.1° to 0.03° approximately. The paper will show the results of the preliminary validation tests, both wind and wave, carried out over an entire year, comparing the data of several field stations.
