South Eastern Levantine Israeli Prediction System (SELIPS) - currents, temperature and salinity forecast for the Israeli shelf
Original (non-English) name
SELIPS is a forecasting system meant to produce daily forecasts of temperature, salinity and sea currents in the coastal zone of the southeastern corner of the Levantine Basin.
SELIPS is based on:
POM: a 3D numerical model for the simulation of ocean dynamics.
VIFOP: a software package used in SELIPS to reduce the amplitude of numerical waves created during the initialization process.
SELIPS is one way nested to ALERMO ( which is nested in turn to MFS ) and forced by the SKIRON atmospheric model.
The development of SELIPS begun with the MFSPP project and continued through the MFSTEP and ECOOP projects. SELIPS is run as part of MONGOOS.
