High Resolution Copernicus-Based Information Services at Sea for Ports and Aquaculture

Objective

The Sentinel missions and Copernicus Services provide a global view of environmental parameters of prime importance for climate and environmental research. The accuracy and high spatial resolution of the data play a crucial role in representing physical, chemical and biological processes. Models can develop precise parametrisations of these processes and of their complex interactions. HiSea, combing measurements and models, has an enormous potential to improve the understanding of the coastal environment. HiSea services will deliver information, readily available and with high resolution to fit seamlessly user‘s operation and management requirements. HiSea will provide a co-designed service that offers high resolution water quality data at sea answering to specific questions from the targeted port and the aquaculture sectors. HiSea will develop, in operational mode, novel Copernicus-based downstream services that will incorporate Copernicus Marine, Land and Climate Services Products, local monitoring data, and advanced modelling in the service integrated representing an added value for the potential Copernicus data users. The downstream service includes among others early warning alerts, alarms to potential risks for the daily activities; real time crisis management to simulate mitigation actions to adverse effects; automatic reporting on the key performance indicators; standard datasets; and building knowledge data base of cause-effect relations (business intelligence). From the data storage to the processing using Docker containers, the HiSea platform will be fully compliant to cloud deployment, prepared to DIAS infrastructure. The immediate market uptake of the HiSea services by the targeted ports and aquaculture users is guaranteed. Linking to the market and experience of the partners to deliver similar services, HiSea has the capability to demonstrate the proposed services at regional or even global scale.
