The Flemish Banks Monitoring Network consists of a nautical Monitoring Network, weather forecasting centres on the shore and a computer network in Ostend. The monitoring network is made up of measuring pillars and wave data buoys, fitted with hydro-meteo sensors. Link to service.
A hydrodynamic model describes the distribution of three-dimensional currents and the height of the surface of the sea. This takes account of the influence of the moon and the stars on the movement of the water as well as the effect of the meteorological conditions (wind and pressure). At the moment it provides forecasts over… Read more »
MUMM’s OSERIT oil drift and fate model interface is a 24/7 accessible support tool for evaluation of an oil spill report by MUMM duty personnel, Coast Guard Centres and other governmental authorities involved in oil pollution response at sea or the follow-up of a (presumed) illegal pollution.

The Cyprus Coastal Ocean Forecasting and Observing System (CYCOFOS) is a sub-regional forecasting and observing system in the Eastern Mediterranean Levantine Basin, which covers the coastal and open sea areas of Cyprus, Cilician and Lattakian basins and the Eastern Levantine Base. The CYCOFOS Bulletin is the electronic report of the CYCOFOS state of progress in oceanographic… Read more »
The Coriolis observing system. Credit: Ifremer A system for operational oceanography has been developed in France to monitor and forecast the ocean behaviour. It is composed of three components: Sea-surface observation using satellite sensors, In situ measurements from ships, moored or drifting autonomous systems, Assimilation of in-situ and satellite data in an ocean… Read more »
Significant wave height, output from PREVIMER model. Credit: Ifremer PREVIMER is a system aiming to provide a wide range of users, from private individuals to professionals, with daily observations and short-term forecasts about the coastal environment along the French coastlines bordering the English Channel, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Mediterranean Sea.
Mercator Ocean has set up different services to meet a variety of user needs. Link to services.
Mercator Ocean Reference Products are classified in 2 categories: “Real Time” Reference Products represent the recent past, present and future ocean state updated daily or weekly. The recent past ocean state is 1, 14 or 21 days old. 5, 7 or 14 days forecasts are provided. “Delayed Time” Reference Products represent the past ocean state older than… Read more »
By establishing a network of observation buoys and the creation of a specialized operational center for the processing of the data collected and the production of forecasts, POSEIDON is an infrastructure at the leading edge of modern oceanography in Europe. The network of observation buoys records continuously the physical, biological and chemical parameters of… Read more »

This is the electronic report of the MFS state of progress in predictions/simulations/analysis. Every day a new 10 days forecast is released. The analysis are computed once a week and the last seven days of analysis are released. Daily mean maps are an average from 12:00 to 12:00 of the next day. The model code is… Read more »
The Italian national data buoy network (RON – Rete Ondametrica Nazionale) measures sea wind waves. Real time data are available at: www.telemisura.it. RON includes 15 directional wave buoys and the corresponding land based receiving stations collecting real time series of wave and meteorological parameters every 30 minutes. It provides data needed to define… Read more »
The Italian national tide gauge network (RMN – Rete Mareografica Nazionale) continuously monitors the sea level and a number of related meteorological and physical parameters. Data (real time and time series) are available at: www.mareografico.it/?syslng=ing RMN includes 36 coastal stations. It is the hugest network for sea level measurement in the Mediterranean, collecting… Read more »
The Venice Lagoon and North Adriatic tide gauge network (RMLV) supports the local real-time storm surge prediction and warning system (7 tide stations in the North Adriatic Sea and coastal lagoons). The data collected (tide level, wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, air temperature, precipitation, humidity, wave height and period) are published in nearly real… Read more »
