KASSANDRA Storm Surge Modelling System
Kassandra is a storm surge operational forecast system for the
Mediterranean and Black seas. It consists in a 3D finite element hydrodynamic model (SHYFEM),
including a tidal model, in a third generation finite element spectral
wave model (WWMII), fully coupled to the hydrodynamic model and using as
input surface data obtained from a suite of
meteorological models provided by ISAC-CNR.

The Kassandra forecast system results from the collaboration between the ISMAR-CNR, IAMC-CNR (Gruppo di Oceanografia Operativa), ISAC-CNR, NCKU (National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan), and Dr. Aaron Roland and Prof. U. Zanke from the Department of Hydraulic Engineering, Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. The Black Sea forecast system has been developed in collaboration with the Romanian Research and Development Institute for Marine Geology and Geoecology (GEOECOMAR).
