- monitoring and modelling

The project addresses the challenges from operational application of existing models for hydrodynamic, discharge and risk modelling:

  1. While one e.g. can find the optimal release location through modelling with statistical input data (currents) in the planning phase, statistics are less useful in the operational phase.
  2. Real-time monitoring combined with risk assessment can enable decision making under operation.

Using models for monitoring has its weakness in the accuracy of the input data used for these models.

  • SINTEF's hydrodynamic sensor platform will deliver current measurements from the site in real-time (every 10 minutes).
  • Measured data will be combined with modelled data by data assimilation.
