Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Vol 7 No 4
Marine Scotland has led the development of a hydrodynamic model (FVCOM) for the Scottish continental shelf waters called the Scottish Shelf Model (SSM). A series of six reports have been produced documenting the development of the hydrodynamic model. This report is Part 2: Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters Sub-Domain, documenting the development of this sub-domain model. A companion volume contains additional details on the model development and lessons learned.

Case study: Pentland Firth and Orkney waters. The overall study area includes all of the Scottish shelf waters out to the 200m depth contour at the edge of the continental shelf. A Scottish shelf waters model covering this study area has been developed to simulate the hydrodynamic conditions in three-dimensions, including meteorological and tidal forcings. The model resolution is variable and matched to the processes and bathymetry that are required for the simulations.
