Monitoring the ocean to avoid sea disasters

 Scientists from 28 countries work on an ocean monitoring database to enhance maritime safety


Avoiding collisions with icebergs or identifying sources of oil spills are now easier.

The MyOcean research team has developed a state-of-the-art pan-European database for ocean monitoring offering unprecedented capabilities to observe and anticipate patterns within the marine environment.

Accurate data are crucial to ensure maritime safety, protection of coastal environments and sustainable management of living marine resources.
