Model details

We have developed a year-long model run for 2006, so the parameters below reflect this current set-up. They may change in the future as we figure out the model sensitivities and what works best (i.e., compared to the available observations).

Model setup

Grid

A "high-res" case undergoing validation right now has 777 x 528 grid cells (20 vertical layers) with ~350 m resolution inside Puget Sound up to ~4 km resolution offshore (plot of resolution).
