Title: The Mediterranean Decision Support System for Marine Safety dedicated to oil slicks predictions
Journal: Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography

Abstract: In the Mediterranean sea the risk from oil spill pollution is high due to the heavy traffic of merchantvessels for transporting oil and gas, especially after the recent enlargement of the Suez canal and to theincreasing coastal and offshore installations related to the oil industry in general. The basic response tomajor oil spills includes different measures and equipment. However, in order to strengthen the mar-itime safety related to oil spill pollution in the Mediterranean and to assist the response agencies, amulti-model oil spill prediction service has been set up, known as MEDESS-4MS (Mediterranean DecisionSupport System for Marine Safety). The concept behind the MEDESS-4MS service is the integration of theexisting national ocean forecasting systems in the region with the Copernicus Marine EnvironmentalMonitoring Service (CMEMS) and their interconnection, through a dedicated network data repository,facilitating access to all these data and to the data from the oil spill monitoring platforms, including thesatellite data ones, with the well established oil spill models in the region. The MEDESS-4MS offer arange of service scenarios, multi-model data access and interactive capabilities to suite the needs ofREMPEC (Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea) and EMSA-CSN (European Maritime Safety Agency-CleanseaNet).
