CMOP Virtual Columbia River (SELFE); f33


Semi-implicit Eulerian-Lagrangian Finite Element (SELFE) model 3 day, 15 minute timestep forecast for the Columbia River estuary and near-field plume. Water levels and surface, bottom and mean salinity and temperature fields are publicly available. Additional variables are available on request. While considerable effort has been made to implement all model components in a thorough, correct, and accurate manner, numerous sources of error are possible. As such, please use these data with the caution appropriate for any ocean related activity.
