Monitoring and Forecasting Ocean Dynamics at a Regional Scale




A new Oceanic Observatory for the North-West Iberian Margin is being developed in the scope of the RAIA project. The objective of RAIA is not only to improve our scientific knowledge of the ocean in this North-East Atlantic region, but also to use the in situ observations and ocean models to derive commercial products and services for a range of marine activities related to: sediment transport, coastal erosion, pollution (spill) monitoring, understanding of marine life, search & rescue and renewable energies. The Coastal & Ocean Dynamics Group at CIIMAR is participating in this project and their contributions are presented here
