Abstract:
The project aims at an interdisciplinary study of the Gibraltar Strait ecohydrodynamics using observational data analysis and modelling/data assimilation techniques. A high-resolution 3D hydrodynamic model of the strait will be applied, two-way nested to a coarse-resolution model, incorporating the Western Mediterranean Sea and a part of the Eastern Atlantic Ocean. The high-resolution model will enable the simulation of small-scale flow structures under the influence of high frequency wind/tidal forcing and of the irregular strait topography.
