About HypeWeb

Here SMHI publish modelled Open Data for inspection and free download from multi-basin and large-scale applications of the HYPE model world-wide. Each model domain is version managed and updated continuously and only the latest results are presented.

A ‘large-scale hydrological model’ is a numerical code calculating water volume and fluxes over large geographical areas, which encompass many river basins, cross regional and international boundaries, and a number of different geophysical and climatic zones. ‘Multi-basin’ indicates that each geographical domain include numerous coupled catchments and has a relatively high spatial resolution, although most basins are ungauged. The temporal resolution in the calculations is normally daily.
