climatology of currents

Access to a database of drifting objects and an atlas of climatological currents

These viewers make it possible to study the patterns and variability of ocean currents from 1980 to the present day.

Through the link, you will gain access to a website with two viewers: a database of drifting objects and an atlas of monthly climatological currents.

These viewers are a contribution of ICATMAR to COSMO and MEDOSMOSIS projects, with the aim of providing information on sea surface currents in the Mediterranean basin and around the Iberian Peninsula. The study of ocean current climatology is useful for assessing search and rescue emergencies, pollution emergencies and contributing to forensic investigation.

The quality of the data depends on many factors and the products are still under validation.
