An operational model is well proven and gives results, to those who require them, sufficiently in advance of the time to which they pertain. The distinction is made because most oceanographic models are not operational, nor need they be. This property is evidently required for forecasting, and entails a prognostic model. However, the main problems are likely to be the organization of data input to the model and the rapid dissemination of results. Weather forecasts are a well known example, but wave and surge forecasts are also carried out by operational models for UK waters and beyond at the Meteorological Office (Golding 1985; Heaps 1983).

A statistical model describes the probability distribution of values of (say) sea level at one port, on the basis of previous observations but possibly without much other understanding, knowledge or data. Smith use of limited observations in determining the probability distribution (Pugh and Vassie 1980). Statistical models are important for estimating extreme values and variances direct from observed data. A special form of statistical numerical model simulates dispersion in a given velocity field by ‘tracking’ particles; diffusion is modelled by additional random particle movements.

An operational or conceptual model, the usual level in publications) or the complete computer code for a numerical model. Smith transfer requires considerable understanding by the recipient of the model’s operation and limitations, and the availability of appropriate input data and computer facilities. ) For such complete transfers (relatively rare hitherto) the practice at the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory has been to encourage a visit by the user (for some weeks or months according to model complexity) so as to gain expertise in model operation by working alongside the originators.
