Physical variables from the Scottish Shelf Model 1990-2014 climatology – 4 monthly averages on a shelf wide regular grid
Average (mean) physical variables from the FVCOM Scottish Shelf Model (SSM) interpolated to 1.5 x 1.5 km and 7 x 7 km regular grids. The data are averaged over 3x four month periods (MAMJ, JASO, NDJF), and are provided from model runs with and without large scale tidal energy extraction (10x tidal stream arrays, EcoWatt2050) included.
Variables: sea bottom temperature (BT), potential energy anomaly (PEA), and largest 95 percentile of instantaneous depth-averaged current speed (p95).
These data are from a 1 year climatological model run of the SSM (version 2.01) representing 1990-2014.
MAMJ: March, April, May, June
JASO: July, August, September, October
NDJF: November, December, January, February.
These data were developed under the EcoWatt2050 EPSRC projects (grant numbers EP/J010170/1 & EP/K012851/1 respectively) using the Scottish Shelf Model (http://marine.gov.scot/information/scottish-shelf-model).
