Scottish Shelf Model Community
The Scottish Shelf Model (SSM) is a continuously developing shared resource that is both used and developed by the wider marine science community. Such developments include the implementation of new high resolution case studies, new hindcast, forecast and climatological runs, and the incorporation of output into the integrated grid. The models undergo continual improvement and new updated versions are periodically released over time. It is important for the developments to be well structured and quality-assured, and MSS aims to facilitate this. MSS also aims to help with the distribution of the model by developing the means for output to be downloaded and for the model grids and input files to be shared in a coherent manner.
