The project aims at designing and implementing an Ionian Integrated Marine Observatory that will produce environmental information about the Southern and Northern Ionian Programme Area to support safer maritime traffic and the reduction of pollution hazard.
In particular the partners will develop:
- An information system (IS) for the observations and model analysis and forecasts to be accessed in real time with Web-based Portals containing discovery, visualization and downloading services (INSPIRE compliant).
- The applications, in terms of Decision Support System-DSS, deriving from these products for Ship Routing and Safety (SRS), Search and Rescue (SAR), Pollution Hazard Management (PRM) for transport routes across the area.
- Test and evaluate the different DSS with regional stakeholders from the transport industry, coast guards, port authorities, environmental protection agencies and the civil protection.
