In order to provide pilots guiding ships near the harbour of Rotterdam
in the Netherlands with accurate current information a considerable effort
has gone into the modelling of the region around the 'Hook of Holland'.
The currents in this region to a large extent are influenced by the flow
of fresh water from the Meuse and Rhine rivers and by the wind.
necessitates the on-line forecasting of the currents, since the number of pos-
sible combinations of wind and river outflow is simply too large to tabulate.
Moreover, the clear three-dimensional structure of the currents makes the
use of a three-dimensional model necessary.
In the present study a three dimensional model of the area was com-
pared with a large set of measurements for various settings of the mo...
