SeaConditions is a free app providing a unique integrated and single point of access to meteo-marine and oceanographic forecasts for the Mediterranean Sea, which are based on state of the art meteorological and wave modelling and advanced oceanographic models.
5 days of forecast with a frequency of 3 and 6 hours are updated on a daily basis and are displayed on Google Maps. Oceanographic and sea state forecasts are given for sea surface temperature, surface currents, significant wave height and direction, wave period and direction, sea level. Meterological forecasts are given for air temperature, mean sea level pressure, precipitation, cloud cover and 10 meters winds.
Sea Conditions provides a user friendly interface with zoom and drag Google Maps' features allowing the display of data with different levels of details.
Meteorological forecasts are produced and certified by the Italian Meteorological Service (http://www.meteoam.it/).
Oceanographic and wave forecasts are produced by the Mediterranean Forecasting System (gnoo.bo.ingv.it/mfs) of the Italian Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology (INGV, Bologna, Italy ).
Sea Conditions is available also on web (www.sea-conditions.com) and is a product of "TESSA" (TEchnology for the Situational Sea Awareness), an industrial research project funded under the PON "Ricerca & Competitività 2007-2013" program of the Ministry for Education, University and Research.
