The HIDROGRAFICO+ MSDI portal provides to general users the access to data collected by MONIZEE infrastructure, the real-time monitoring infrastructure for the Portuguese waters that is operated by Instituto Hidrografico. The MONIZEE infrastructure comprises real-time monitoring capacities installed offshore the Portuguese mainland and the Azores and Madeira Archipelagos. MONIZEE offers unique capacities for the monitoring of the Portuguese coastal ocean in particular in the area that extends for more than 700km along the Portuguese mainland, covering the Gulf of Cadiz waters (offshore the southern Portuguese coast) and the energetic conditions affecting the western Portuguese margin. In this area the users accessing HIDROGRAFICO+ portal will get access to (a) data from 5 multiparametric buoys including meteorological parameters, wave measurements, upper 90m ADCP current profile, near surface temperature, subsurface temperature at selected depths (for some of the buoys); (b) surface currents from 6 HF radar stations which cover the complete southern Portuguese margin, the Lisbon bay area and the northwestern Portuguese area; (c) sea surface height from 17 tide gauges stations along the Portuguese mainland coast (some only in graphic format) and (d) wave measurements in 3 wave buoys located along the southern (1) and western (2) Portuguese margin (in graphical format).
The HIDROGRAFICO+ portal offers a platform for data dissemination that follows the main guidelines of the INSPIRE Directive and is based on a MSDI environment that allows the user to select the existent infrastructures in a georeferenced environment. The portal provide an easy access to the broad range of data collected by the MONIZEE system (both real-time quality controlled data as well as archived processed and QC data) in the Portuguese coastal ocean waters which is complemented with numerical modelling products such as operational forecasts. The MONIZEE infrastructures contributes to JERICO-RI and integrates the Iberian Atlantic Margin Integrated Regional Site that is being developed under the JERICO-S3 project.
