Ocean state variables such as water level are important factors to consider when planning daily operations. This service offers forecasts of the water level of a selected point of interest along with other environmental conditions for up to 48 hours, starting from the selected date in the present or past. The resulting bulletin will display the water level in relation to working environments like wind, precipitation, and daylight. A working limit can be set, for which the bulletin will provide some additional visual support, enabling for faster information extraction.
The service is currently available for the Sado Estuary in Portugal and the Limfjorden in Denmark. The predictions are based on hourly mean forecast data. The data used are retrieved from the Marine, Environment & Technology Center (MARETEC) and the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
