West Orkney MIKE21 Model Input Files

Datasets
Description: 

This item includes the input files for the West Orkney spectral wave sub-model that is described in [1]. It formed part of the TeraWatt and EcoWatt2050 EPSRC projects (grant numbers EP/J010170/1 & EP/K012851/1 respectively). The input files require the MIKE 21 modelling suite to run, available commercially from https://www.mikepoweredbydhi.com/; they were created and validated using the 2014 edition. Input files are being stored instead of outputs as per RCUK guidelines due to the size of the output files. Versions of the simulation were run for present (2010) and future (2050) climate, and with and without wave energy extraction by wave energy convertors (WECs). All four resulting scenarios are included here. For further information please contact Dr. Vengatesan Venugopal, School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh (v.venugopal@ed.ac.uk). [1] V.
