The Scottish Shelf Model. Part 6: wider domain and sub-domains integration.

Authors: Judith Wolf, Caroline Stuiver, Darren Price, Hakeem Johnson, Alejandro Gallego, Rory O'Hara Murray.


The Scottish Shelf Model ( SSM) contract was funded by the Scottish Government.

The FVCOM model has been developed by the Marine Ecosystem Dynamics Modeling Laboratory at the School for Marine Science and Technology, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, led by Dr Changsheng Chen. We would like to acknowledge Dr Chen for authorising the project team to use FVCOM for the development of the Scottish Shelf Model.

We would like to thank the SSM Steering Group for their contribution. In particular, Tracy McCollin (Marine Scotland) as the Project Manager, John Debenham (CH2M HILL) and Alan Hills (Scottish Environment Protection Agency). Daniel Pendrey and Kate Smith (Marine Scotland) and Andrew Berkeley ( SEPA) also participated in the Steering Group. We would also like to acknowledge Christina Sommerville (University of Stirling) and Nabeil Salama ( MSS) for their input into fish farm connectivity indices.

The Grid2Grid freshwater runoff data were supplied under contract by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrography. We would like to thanks Robert Moore and his colleagues at CEH for those data.

Many individuals and organisations, too numerous to list individually, made data and data products used in the development of this model available free of charge. All relevant data sources are acknowledged through the text of these reports and we refer the readers to that information.
