Experimental Ecological Forecasting Product -- Galicia, Spain

This model uses climate variables (i.e. air temperature, windspeed, sea surface temperature, solar radiation) from MeteoGalicia WRF weather forecasts and MeteoGalicia MOHID ocean forecasts to predict clam body temperatures in intertidal shellfish beds. Forecasts are for today until 2 days from now (i.e. until noon local time).
