The FlexSem model setup for Roskilde Fjord uses the HDLite module to simulate the hydrodynamics and the pelagic and bethic equation solvers to implement two-way coupled pelagic and sediment ecoligcal models. The model is forced by meteorological model data and open boundary conditions, fresh water input and river loading from the national monitoring program. Two version of the mode has been calibrated; a box version with 11 boxes to represent the general areas of the fjord and the higher resolution computational mesh seen below. Both models has 6 sigma coordinate vertical layers.

A full FlexSem hydrodynamic model for Roskilde Fjord has also been made, see Hydrodynamics->Roskilde Fjord setup.
