IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

OPERATIONAL OCEANOGRAPHIC PLATFORM IN THERMAIKOS GULF (GREECE): FORECASTING AND EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM FOR PUBLIC USE
Author : YANNIS KRESTENITIS, KATERINA KOMBIADOU, YANNIS S. ANDROULIDAKIS, CHRISTOS MAKRIS, VASSILIS BALTIKAS, CHARALAMBOS SKOULIKARIS, YANNIS KONTOS, GIOLANTA KALANTZI
A state-of-the-art forecasting system (WaveForUs: Wave climate and coastal circulation Forecasts for public Use) is implemented, delivering 3-day forecasts of spectral wave characteristics, hydrodynamic circulation and storm surges for the Thermaikos Gulf (North Aegean Sea). The forecasts are disseminated to the public via television broadcasts and internet applications. The WaveForUs platform is fully functional and aspires to provide users with an invaluable tool for their sea-based activities in Greece. The simulations are based on a storm surge hydrodynamic model, a circulation ocean model and a wave model, while necessary atmospheric input data are provided by a well-validated atmospheric model. The main characteristics of the WaveForUs system and the sea-state models that comprise the core of the modelling system are presented and discussed, while results from calibration/validation tests support the accuracy of the forecasts.
