Abstract

This paper presents some results on modelling and forecasting residual sea level by means of a one-layer free-surface barotropic ocean model, forced by surface wind stress and atmospheric pressure fields obtained from an atmospheric Limited Area Model (LAM). As a case study, the model is ap- plied to a marked storm surge event that occurred in the Northern Adriatic Sea in December 1997 and was followed by seiche oscillations for several days. Model outputs are compared to the residual sea level deduced from obse
