|Abstract: ||The simulation operational tool known as SIMulación de COrrientes (SIMCO) is a part
of a methodology to forecast marine currents into cuban shelf. This tool is based on a lineal model. Gulf of Batabanó is an almost closed shallow water body whit flat bottom, that includes a surface of 20 850 km2 and its average depth is about 6 m. This work offers the results of such a comparison between the results of the application of SIMCO to Gulf of Batabanó and current measurements.
SIMCO is a good representation of the marine currents inside of the gulf, the overestimation mean error is equal to 3.8 cm/s for the south boundary of gulf when SIMCO run whit a kind of horizontal resolution of 2 nm and the overestimation errors decreases when the horizontal resolution rise up.|
