1 Monitoring and Modelling the Spanish Coastal Waters. A new concept: The Operational PdE PORTUS System Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007

2 Outline…. The Área de Medio Físico (PdE) Real-time Ocean Monitoring Forecasting Systems Marine database & web services The PORTUS system

3 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Who are we? Puertos del Estado  Área de Medio Físico (R&D Section) Main objective: To provide the required oceanographical & meteorological information need to support and to manage the Spanish harbours activities.

4 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Who are we? Área de Medio Físico: Present Activities  Permanent measuring networks  Forecasting systems (numerical modelling)  Multi-parameter Marine Database  Web display services  R&D Projects

5 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 1.Deep water Buoy Network 2.Coastal Buoy Network 3.Tide- gauge Network Permanent Real-time monitoring

6 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 16 Buoy stations Depths between 200 and 800m Measured parameters: directional waves, meteorology, surface currents, temperature and salinity Satellite Data transmission Data from early 90’s Deep water buoy Network

7 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 21 Buoy stations Moored near to the coast (harbour and coastal activities) Measured parameters: scalar & directional waves. Tryaxys stations also SST First mooring from 1982 Real-time radio transmission Coastal buoy Network

8 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 33 measuring sites located at harbours REDMAR network launched at 1992 Measured parameters: sea level (new radar equipments also provide agitation data) Real-time transmission REDMAR Tide-Gauge Network

9 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 PdE Real-time Measuring Networks: Operative Equipments: 69 Measuring devices: 203 Records (real time QC, analyzed & displayed) per year: 11.571.960!!! Real-time monitoring: Some figures …

10 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 3 stations (complementing the deep water buoy network) Measured parameters: currents, temperature & salinity at different depths No real-time transmission available Current meter Network

11 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 PdE Monitoring Service: The future Upgrade existing networks 1.Increase number of stations (remarkable: tide-gauges case) 2.Upgrade measuring devices 3.Increase sampling frequency New networks: Incorporation of new technologies (i.e. HF Radar)

12 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Forecasting Systems Main Aim: To provide oceanographic prediction (harbours) 30m 5 Km 30m Regional scale Local scale (Harbour Applications) Forecasting Systems waves Sea level Circulation Waves & Agitation Harbour Circulation

13 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 1º - 0.25º Wave Forecasting WAM Model (INM Met forcing (HIRLAM)) Forecast horizon: +72h. Twice a day Variable grid spacing (2-way nesting) 10’- 5’ Nesting Applications: 5’, 2.5’ & 1’ Real Time Verification

14 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 SAPO Systems: waves at harbours Wave forecasting at harbours, SWAM applications nested into the regional PdE/INM wave forecasting system Harbour agitation forecast available Warning system

15 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Sea level Forecasting: NIVMAR HAMSOM Model (INM Met forcing (HIRLAM)) Forecast horizon: +72h. Twice a day Data Assimilation (tide gauge measurements) Web Tool for Astronomical Tide Prediction Real-Time Verification

16 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Ocean Forecasting The ESEOO Forecast System provides prediction of:  Currents  Temperature  Salinity The sistem is operationally running on daily basis  forecast horizon: 72h 3 regional application cover the whole Spanish waters:  ESEOAT  ESEOMED  ESEOCAN ESEOMED application developed by IMEDEA ESEOAT ESEOCAN ESEOMED Numerical models: POLCOMS (ESEOAT&ESEOCAN) DIECAST (ESEOMED) Resolution: 1/20º / 34 levels Forcings: INM + (FOAM+MFS)

20 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Marine Database Example: WAVES  Data Series  Histograma  Height-period Tables  Max heights  Waves roses  Directional statistics  Mean regim & extremal analysis (return periods)

21 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Web Display Service http://www.puertos.es

22 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Users (Database & Web Services) Through internet  Real-time monitoring data (~ 6000/day)  Marine database (~ 200/day)  Sea level forecasting (~ 500/day)  Wave forecasting (~ 15000/day) Access to raw data (under request)  Research, engineering, technology development … (~ 300/year)

23 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 The PORTUS System New concept!!! Enhanced interface to favour the integration of the very diverse available information  Real-time  Analyzed & historical  Forecasting First and principal end-user: Harbour Authorities  Each harbour have a single entry point to access the available environmental information required by its particular interests and needs  Added value products (i.e. met-ocean state alert system) will be developed PORTUS system ready to be expanded in order to provide tailored products to different user sectors (fisheries, tourism, research…)

24 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 The PORTUS System A very preliminary view of the PORTUS interface

25 Workshop on “The status of coastal observing and forecasting system”. Mallorca, October 2007 Conclusions The Área de Medio Físico of PdE provides a sustained presence in the coastal ocean emphasizing its primary interest on harbors as main end-user, but never forgetting the remarkable service that marine information available can have for science, education, technology development, and decision making The Área serves as a national public resource for ocean monitoring and forecasting Through national & international collaboration we can bring many local and regional efforts together to address global concerns
