EuroROSE Objectives and Methodology
The main objective of EuroROSE is the development of a transportable
methodology for monitoring and forecasting winds, waves, water level and
currents in limited areas (typical extent 40 by 40 km), such as coastal and
port approach areas.
The methodology is a combination of area covering remote sensed data and
high resolution numerical forecast models including data assimilation,
co-ordinated with the Vessel Traffic Services at ports and coastal
monitoring centres. The term 'transportable' means that the methodology is
easy to be adapted to different basins. The system developed will be
tested in two field experiments, and will also be validated from the
scientific point of view.
This work is supported by the European Commission DG XII within
the MAST-3 programme, project EuroROSE, CT98-0168.
