Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Vol 10 No 3
A new high-resolution hydrodynamic model has been developed covering the Clyde Sea. This report describes the model setup in detail. Initial validation of the model is mixed, suggesting that it correctly predicts the broad patterns of water structure and behaviour in the region but cannot currently be fully relied upon for precise time-specific predictions. Further development and validation is recommended.

This report describes the development and use of a new sub-model covering the Clyde Sea area. A prototype was developed and, from this, a totally new model was developed with approximately the same open boundaries.
This report will describe the setup of the new model, including the data sources used and the processing applied to those sources, and the calibration and validation that has been performed. Appendix A provides instructions on setting up the model to run for different dates as a stand-alone model or nested within the SSM as a climatology. Specific instructions for time-specific nested model runs are not presented in this report.
