Abstract The Salish Sea is home to a large population of Canadians living in coastal communities at risk to ocean related hazards. There is an ongoing need to assess the impact of these hazards on human and marine environments through a multidisciplinary approach involving Canadian oceanographers, biologists, and social scientists. The Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) provides a platform to accelerate this type of research. The Salish Sea MEOPAR project team is developing a three-dimensional ocean model for the Strait of Georgia and the Salish Sea. Using NEMO modelling architecture, the Salish Sea model will be used to evaluate storm surge risk in coastal communities. Long term goals include data assimilation from the VENUS network and a coupled biogeochemical modeling component. Model Domain: the region covered by the model includes the Straight of Georgia, Strait of Juan de Fuca, Johnstone Strait, Fraser River, and other connecting waterways. This site provides model outputs for: i) Storm Surge Forecast: Marine and atmospheric conditions: storm surge alerts, tidal predictions, surface height, and winds. ii) Diatom Bloom Forecast: SOG biophysical model: best estimate of the first spring diatom bloom in the Straight of Georgia. iii) Storm Surge Nowcast: Present marine and atmospheric conditions. iv) Currents and Physics: Research results: salinity, temperature, and currents. v) Biology: Research results: nitrate, diatoms, flagellates.
