The information obtained through measurement networks facilitates major progress in the tools available for managers to:

  • face pollution control episodes against spills;
  • have tools to predict the direction of spills to know which resources should be available to reduce their impact on the coast;
  • effective searching for people in the event of shipwrecks or falling into the sea from the coast using airborne and marine rescue resources; and
  • forecasting the geographical arrival area of jellyfish and algal blooms to our coasts and beaches.
