Inadequate marine services

Experimental visualization of narrower problems

Universal marine services include (a) basic meteorological forecast and warning services in support of safe and economic operations for maritime transport (as required under the SOLAS convention), fisheries, offshore and coastal industries and recreation; (b) more specialized meteorological and oceanographic services (eg ocean waves, temperature and sea-ice analyses and forecasts) in support of primarily economic aspects of fisheries, maritime transport and offshore activities; and (c) support of marine pollution monitoring and emergency and rescue operations. Additional marine services relate to insurance, sea lane safety and policing, port and pilot services, and others which are more related to individual factors.
