Introduction

Everyday life and business practice are closely related to the sea in many countries. This is especially true in Greece with more than 16,000 Km of coastline. In such conditions timely and reliable information and forecast on the condition of the seas is of strategic importance. For over a decade now POSEIDON system operation covers exactly this need.

By establishing a network of observation buoys and the creation of a specialized operational center for the processing of the data collected and the production of forecasts, POSEIDON system is an infrastructure at the leading edge of modern oceanography in Europe. The network of observation buoys records continuously the physical, biological and chemical parameters of the Greek seas. Those data are then transmitted to the operational center where they are sorted and fed into forecasting models.

POSEIDON system is a unique planning tool in the endeavour for the protection of the marine environment. It also provides a competitive advantage for the development of business activity, the prevention of disaster, and the safeguarding of human life. In the frame of the world-wide trend for the development of operational oceanography, POSEIDON network places Greece among the leading countries in this field.
