This is the homepage of the research project “Development of the Integrated Parallel Cyprus Coastal Ocean Forecasting System.” The project is funded by the Research Promotion Foundation under the Structural Funds action of the 7th Framework Program of the European Union.

The objective of the project is to develop a faster version of the Cyprus Coastal Ocean Forecasting System (CYCOFOS) by parallelizing the existing software, and running it on Linux clusters. The improved software will be used to provide operational ocean forecasts in near real time at the sea area of Cyprus and Eastern Mediterranean Levantine basin at a higher space resolution than before, in order to assist local and sub-regional marine activities, such as search and rescue operations, response to oil spill and hazard pollution, marine safety, maritime operations, coastal and offshore constructions.
