coastDat-3 TRIM-NP-2d hydrodynamic hindcast for the North Sea and Northeast Atlantic for 1995-2019 with COSMO-REA6 forcing


This is a hydrodynamic hindcast for the North Sea and the Northeast Atlantic over the period 1995-2019. Atmospheric forcing is COSMO-REA6 high-resolution reconstruction ( The simulation has been performed with the hydrodynamic model TRIM-NP V2.5 in barotropic 2D mode. FES tides are included. Water level and current component fields are stored hourly/20min. The model is set up on an equidistant Cartesian grid cascade with the center near Helgoland (7.88 E, 54.18 N). The coarsest grid with 12.8 km resolution covers the area from 20 W to 30 E and from 42 N to 65 N. Further nested grids better resolve the North Sea (with 6.4km), southern North Sea (with 3.2km) and the German Bight (with 1.6km and 0.4km). Model data from grid 1 (ssh) and grid 4 (ssh, u-current, v-current) are available in this data bank. Please contact the authors for data from other grids or finer temporal resolution.
