Modelling technologies

Surface ocean current fields from High Frequency Radars
HF Radar system operated by AZTI for Euskalmet Agency provide measurements of surface ocean current fields to control and/or force floating marine litter transport models

Numerical modelling of floating marine litter dispersion
Particle tracking model forced by HR Radar or Copernicus models is used to compute floating marine litter dispersion forward (destination estimate) or backward (origin estimate)
