In recent years, thanks to the enormous computational power of modern supercomputers, modeling has become one of the most highly evolving scientific fields. It is now possible to describe relatively large physical bodies and to study the changes occurring in these bodies with resolution never attainable before. The paper describes the initial implementation of the EcoPuckBay model system and presents the results of the model simulations compared to observations from monitoring stations and other model reanalyses. High correlation between model results and observations has been confirmed both in terms of spatial and temporal approach. Data acquired via simulations of the EcoPuckBay model was deployed in the project archive database. The dedicated service was created, allowing the user to visualize all produced hydrodynamic parameters as raster maps, time series, and/or cross-sections. This functionality is available online via the official WaterPUCK project website in the services web section. In the next stage of the project, this service will be upgraded to an operational state and forecasts will be added. View Full-Text
