The goal of ECOOP is to create an integrated system offering the ability to detect environmental and climate change and to improve forecasting of the behaviour of our European seas.

The project will produce a database of satellite and in situ measurements integrating existing coastal and regional sea observations. It will also integrate existing regional and coastal sea forecasting systems and assimilate measurements from the observational database into the forecasting models. The ECOOP products will be able to meet a variety of applications in European Coastal Seas such as:

  • Ecosystem models
  • HAB warning systems
  • Oil spill and contaminant dispersion and forecast studies
  • Maritime ship routing applications

A total of 71 partners are involved in the ECOOP project.
