State of the art in maritime forecasting

Analysis of past dramatic events and Maritime forecasting

During this phase, the partners will analyse prevision networks, methodologies and action plans applied during previous dramatic events like ERIKA, Prestig and Don Pedro. A review of the existing official contingency plans at national and regional levels will be carried out to match their practical implementation with the requirements of modelling and forecasting solutions. Based on that analysis, the project will undertake the necessary technical developments for the improvement of existing marine forecasting systems in order to optimize the response in the event of a maritime accident. 

Main outputs expected:

  • Analysis on existing action plans and methodologies.
  • Set of recommendations to improve action plans in case of marine accident.
  • Improved equipment and systems for maritime monitoring and forecasting.
