MREA08

The main goals of MREA08 Experiment (carried out in 2008) was:
 -  To collect oceanographic data to calibrate and validate the MREA concept for environmental applications in open sea and coastal areas.
 -  Calibrate/Validate a relocatable model system nested in the basin scale operational oceanographic model (called MREA model system)
 -  Demonstrate the utility of MREA model system for contaminant dispersal forecasting
 -  Study mesoscale processes in the Ligurian Sea and their importance on contaminant dispersal.
