The Mariner Platform is a web GIS that integrates multiple information layers and efficiently manage the response to an eventual spill. It provides operational meteorological, hydrodynamics and waves modelling and online on-demand hns ecotoxicology spill.

Introduction

The MARINER platform is an integration platform for modelling results and field data, taking advantage of the combination of state-of-the-art model-based decision support systems and data management technologies developed in ACTION Modulers along the recent years. The Mariner Platform was designed to integrate partners operational numerical models with field data to readily obtain the metocean conditions, key aspects for oil and hns fate in a response context. One key aspect of the platform is the inclusion of a on-demand spill and SAR simulator with state of the art dynamic transport with weathering and toxicity impact processes to aid on pollution control and coastal protection operations.

The following videos show how to explore the platform in 3 of many ways:

a) Video 1: Explore Map and Charts operational metocean conditions for past, current situation and future

Explore Map and Charts operational metocean conditions for past, current situation and future

b) Video 2-part 1: Run on-demand oil, hns, SAR, passive tracer simulations to understand system behaviour and support pollution control and training

Run on-demand oil, hns, SAR, passive tracer simulations to understand system behaviour and support pollution control and training

c) Video 2-part 2: Run on-demand - explore simulation results from particle, eulerian and integrated plume results.
