The primary aim of CALYPSO project is to support efficient response against marine oil spills in the Malta-Sicily Channel, that is one of the busiest areas of maritime transportation in the Mediterranean, accounting for roughly twenty percent of the world’s oil tanker traffic. This has included installation of a SeaSonde HF radar network. The routine acquisition of such spatially widespread, long-term data sets is expected to trigger an unprecedented leap in the economic value of ocean data and information, and will additionally target multiple applications and information users. This project puts Malta and Sicily at the forefront of such initiatives in the Mediterranean and will serve as a stepping stone to expand the system in the future for coverage of the full marine space around the Maltese Islands and the Sicilian perimeter.
