SOCIB Balearic Rissaga Forecasting System presented at MonGOOS meeting

Baptiste Mourre (SOCIB Modelling Facility) presented the recent progress in the modelling and forecasting of meteotsunamis obtained with BRIFS (SOCIB Balearic Rissaga Forecasting System) at the MonGOOS workshop, focusing on “Advances in Oceanographic Modelling in the Mediterranean Sea”. This workshop and the following MonGOOS general assembly were held in Split, Croatia, on 15-17 November 2016. The work carried out at SOCIB on the modelling of meteotsunami events had a particular regional relevance given that the area of Croatian Islands off Split is regularly affected by meteotsunamis with similarities with the “rissaga" phenomenon occurring in Ciutadella, Menorca.
