The table below gives an overview of the models linked via the Published Interface or NetCDF to Delft-Fews by means of a model adapter. If you cannot find the information you need here, please contact the supplier / owner of the model adapter. The column OC indicates if a model and its adapter are used in an operational Delft-FEWS system. The column wiki links to the documentation when available. There is a separate overview of all documentation for Delft-FEWS Model adapters by Deltares only, but these adapters are listed below as well.

More information on how to create or use a model adapter can be found on 15 Connect external modules with a model adapter


Adapters that have not been developed by Deltares cannot be used without permission of the owner.
