impact of wind in the coastal areas and ports
In coastal areas the wind in particular is
problematic for smaller boats. One of the ways
to improve the weather information in a critical
way would be real-time information of weather
conditions combined with a 24-hour weather
forecast information. Such information is
considered sufficient for instance for port
operations, as this would give sufficient time to
advise incoming ships of changes in weather
Developing of decision under risk
This task draws together the issues from Tasks
6.1 and 6.2 and discusses the overall maritime
transport routing and port selection under the
extreme weather or natural disasters. The
results will feed into roadmap and policy
recommendations for improved maritime
safety in the short and long-run.
