Within the framework of MUSTOK, two different hydrodynamic models were used to simulate extreme storm surge events. One of the models is the Baltic Sea model used at FTZ Büsum, which is based on a model system developed at DHI. The other model is the BSH's operational model system of the North Sea and Baltic Sea. This contribution deals with a comparison of the two models. The differences between the simulated water levels were small; they were considerably smaller than the differences found when forcing the hydrodynamic models with wind and pressure fields from different meteorological models.
