AbstractThe development and calibration of coastal numerical models to support engineering design and environmental impact studies is a challenging process and one that requires professional judgement and continual assessment of all aspects of the model makeup. Fundamental to the integrity of the model are appropriate boundary conditions and quality observational data for calibration. Open ocean boundary conditions are typically the most complex and important aspect of a model build. They represent the influence of dynamics occurring beyond the model extent, bridging large-scale dynamics to the small-scale processes in the model. This study discusses the challenges of open ocean boundaries and how we utilised data to achieve an effective model.
