It is of great significance in coastal engineering, marine tourism and sports, marine aquaculture, offshore oil and gas exploitation, marine environmental protection, and coastal disaster prevention to precisely predict coastal ocean dynamic parameters of wave and tidal current.
However, there is no effective and practical software system to implement precise forecasts of such marine dynamic parameters for the Hong Kong coastal waters.

The project aims at developing a marine environmental service system based on numerical prediction technology in the nesting domain frame for precise prediction of the coastal dynamic environmental parameters. The objectives of the project are to 1) develop a marine multi-parameter forecasting system under extrema and normal conditions and 2) build an integrated forecasting software under GIS platform.
