Metocean statistics

Marine forecasts




« La mer est un espace de rigueur et de liberté »  Victor Hugo

to benefit the sea

The operational oceanography is aiming to measure and forecast the marine environment parameters
by implementing operational observation and forecast system,
tailored to the requirements of the sea users.

Actimar is a service company devoted to maritime and coastal activities:
  • Metocean studies and high-resolution coastal oceanography
  • High-resolution remote sensing by radars and optical sensors (lidar and hyperspectral)
  • Development and implementation of operational systems for decision-making aids

In a highly specialised and ever-progressing sector, Actimar focuses its activities especially on developing innovative products tailored to the requirements of professional stakeholders and users of the sea.
