The DIAVLOS system initiative aims at developing a forecast system for forecasting/monitoring oil spill dispersion in the area of the Northeastern Aegean Sea.
The project involves the development and implementation of tools (software, instrumentation and website) for oil pollution protection in the region, centered around the Alexandroupolis oil pipe terminal. Possible oil spill accidents will be monitored and oil dispersion will be forecasted.
