Abstract
    The application of the 3-D operational hydrodynamic model, based on the POM model for the study and forecast of storm surges in 2002 and 2003 revealed its high usefulness. In case of high amplitude and significant water level fluctuations the model correctly approximated the changes of water level and reflected the hydrological situations properly. Potential users such as emergency command centres and services dealing with environmental and flood control as well as with the safety of navigation can take advantages from current 0-60-hour hydrological forecasts for the region of the Szczecin Lagoon and the Pomeranian Bay via a quick website access (http://model.ocean.univ.gda.pl).
