NorKyst-800 (Norwegian Coast 800m) is a numerical, high-resolution, ocean modelling system. The main motivation for establishing NorKyst-800, besides the easy-to-implement and easy-and-rapid-to-use facilities, is the potential to provide environmental information for all coastal areas in Norway as input to applications regarding oil spills, drift of floating objects (“man-over-board”), spread of harmful algae and salmon lice etc. The step from previous models with 4km horizontal resolution to NorKyst-800 is essential to be able to reproduce physical conditions along the Norwegian shore. NorKyst-800 will also act as an 5 intermediate model transferring information from the coarse 4km deep ocean models to even finer scale fjord models with 150-200m horizontal resolution. NorKyst-800 is initiated and developed as a co-operation between the Institute of Marine Research, the Norwegian Meteorological Institute and the Norwegian Institute for Water Research. This report is meant to act as a guidance and description for users of the model system. This report may also serve as background information for users of the results along with the next NorKyst-800 validation report.
