RIMA: Development of technology and software for an integrated Mediterranean marine and coastal environmental management forecasting system 

Scope: Environmental technologies

Duration: October 2012 - September 2016

The proposed project follows an analysis of the current marine operating systems, which are seen as misaligned with EC strategies and indicate the need for an integrated system of observation and forecasting. The RIMA project involves developing state-of-the-art software and hardware for forecast data management and access, and promoting improvements in technological development platforms. The aim of the project is also to demonstrate that the availability of real-time sea data and forecasts can help prevent environmental and infrastructural problems. The project's most urgent priorities could be:

  • Monitoring in line with European directives
  • Forecasting hydrocarbon spill movements, and producing pollutant dispersion maps for coastal/port zones
