grafico15Establishment of a Spanish operational oceanographic system. ESEOO (2004-2007)

Is funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology which aims to promote operational oceanography in the national and, more specifically, services capable of providing answers to emergency situations at sea, such as object tracking discharges and the drift. Involving more than 14 Spanish institutions, highlighting the Maritime Rescue Society for being a end user of the products of the project.

As part of this project, IH Cantabria has developed a series of numerical modeling based services:

  • OPROMS operating system, which  provides daily high resolution predictions of sea level, currents, temperature and salinity for the coast of Cantabria and
  • the transport and fuel degradation model TESEO, which predicts the path and behavior of spills or drifting objects.
