The main aim of the project is to generate both operational forecasting systems and planning tools, at the local scale (estuaries and ports) by developing a set of high resolution operational oceanographic systems in several estuaries or ports located in the Atlantic Area (Aveiro Lagoon, Santander Bay, Falmouth Harbour and Belfast Lough), and establishing local oil spill response plans for these areas based on risk assessment.
SPRES also aims to embed the project results firmly in regional development activities through the involvement of stakeholders in a large range of activities. The stakeholders will therefore be involved in the planning and delivery of the project aims, as well as promoting the project results to the wider industrial and public sector communities.
