For over 15 years, the Basque Meteorological Agency-Euskalmet has acquired and installed a high number of infrastructures to implement a system which provides information on how meteorological processes evolve at sea, but also about changes sustained by the marine environment, often related to the abovementioned meteorological processes.

A major part of this information is submitted almost in real time (via satellite or other communication channels) to the facilities of the Basque Meteorological Agency, Euskalmet, where it is comprehensively monitored at the right time, facilitating knowledge of the evolution of heavy storms, gales, etc. As a result, this is an essential tool to address adverse meteorological situations, and offer information of general interest to any user.
