Operational Oceanography is the scientific response in the domain of Oceanography to the Society's requirement of knowledge on the evolution of planet Earth. Scientific observations of the oceans have been carried out for the last centuries but much of the knowledge acquired has remained in the relatively closed universe of Science.

The last decades have witnessed an opening of scientific knowledge to the whole Society. Observations are now widely distributed around the globe in real time or quasi-real time. Earth Observation from Space programs provide everyone with all kinds of imagery in short time. Ground observations from free-drifting or moored buoys are also distributed globally within a day or so of their acquisition.

Numerical models of atmospheric and oceanic conditions that cover large regions or even the entire globe are widely available. Short- medium- or long-term forecasting and re-analysis of such conditions are a benefit that oceanographers and atmospheric scientists, with great effort, offer to Society.

Oceans Catalonia International SL, most active in the field of Operational Oceanography, facilitates the access to such data either directly on this web site or by means of links to other providers. In close collaboration with the CEAB's Group of Operational Oceanography a numerical model of the western Mediterranean Sea has been developed and run in real time. This model uses forcings from the ECMWF producing weekly forecasts and reanalysis that are displayed in this web page. Other observations available in this web page are produced by the Operational Observatory of the Catalan Sea.
