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. More about OSERIT here.

Coastal Coriolis is a Data portal for all in-situ data platforms in Coastal French waters.
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 »
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 »

The Italian national data buoy network (RON – Rete Ondametrica Nazionale) measures sea wind waves. Real time data are available here. 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 »
The E2M3A observatory, located in the Southern Adriatic Pit, works almost continuously since 2006 hosting the longest open-sea time series in the Adriatic (Eastern Mediterranean Sea). The recorded time-series at the E2-M3A station can be used for studies of long-term changes of Adriatic response to local climatic forcing. E2M3A Observatory has open access to… Read more »
