Abstract/Description: The Spanish ports demand operational oceanography products for their operation. In recent years, this demand has been fulfilled by SAMOA project. SAMOA (Sistema de Apoyo Meteorológico y Oceanográfico a las Autoridades portuarias - System of Meteorological and Oceanographic Support for Port Authorities) is revolutionary in the way solutions are provided to the operational oceanography needs of port authorities. An integrated system, ultimately based on Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) data, has been developed. A total of 10 new high-resolution atmospheric models (1 km resolution, based on Harmonie), 10 wave models (5 m, mild slope), and nine circulation models (70 m, ROMS) have been developed and operationally implemented. In terms of instrumentation, SAMOA has improved the preexisting large network of Puertos del Estado by means of 13 new meteorological stations and three global navigation satellite systems associated with the tide gauges. Twenty-five ports from 18 port authorities will benefit from these new modeling and monitoring advances.
