S9.2.4 - Marine security in the Iberian coast and the Western Mediterranean


The existing service is being developed toward EuroDeSS operational capacity in oil spill drift forecast for the Iberian coast and the Western Mediterranean. This service is based on MF, IST, UPC and AZTI expertise. MF has also to fulfil international commitments in the framework of the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) and IOC (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO) Joint technical Commission for Oceanography & Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) MPERSS (Marine Pollution Emergency Response Support System) regarding oil spill drift forecast and maritime accident emergency support. The MF model can also be used to support, on demand, the Search and Rescue activities on this area.


The key users are the national authorities in charge of the marine operation (“Préfecture Maritime” for the French part of the bay of Biscay and of the Mediterranean Sea, for example).
