GROW-Fine Mediterranean Sea is a follow-on to the
GROW hindcast which addresses the Mediterranean Sea
with a basin-wide 14 km grid (0.125 deg) and an eastern
Mediterranean Sea 3 km (0.025 deg) fine mesh grid. The hindcast
is archived 1-hourly for the continuous period 1979-2021
and includes shallow water effects. Spectra are available
at select locations on both the basin-wide and fine mesh grids.
A storm hindcast is also available on the eastern Mediterranean 3 km fine
mesh grid. Over 70 significant events were selected from the
operational hindcast for further analysis.
In addition to the wave model, the ADCIRC model was run on a
very fine finite element mesh grid in order
to develop hydrodynamic parameters. Tidal effects are included.
