The worldwide climate balance depend on the right regulation of the marine currents.
To know how the marine currents move along the oceans and seas, near to the coastal areas, in deeps areas or in shallow waters is necessary know and drive oceanographic techniques.
ECOS has specialized since the begininng in Oceanography services as a way to give answers to the customer requesting, generating tools to prevent environmental impacts.
The acquisition and processing of oceanographic data with numerical modeling allow us perform a number of different types of work related to spill dispersion, marine climate study, sedimentation studies, hydrodynamic studies, etc.
Hydrodynamic studies allow us to know the discharge dispersion width, the areas that can be affected by it and its quantification, which helps a better management of the marine environment and facilitate the conservation of protected areas.
On this field, we do current meter facilities, hydrodynamic studies, advection and dispersion studies, and particle analysis.
PARTICLE DISPERSION STUDIES / DISCHARGE MODELING
This type of studies enables the development of highly reliable and precise impact prevention tasks.
At ECOS we work with specialized software as Mike 3, Mike 21, Cormix, BrIHne and SMC to simulate several conditions and discharges.
WAVE CLIMATE STUDY / COASTAL DYNAMICS
One of the major challenges facing the maritime and coastal engineering field is the swell impact in the target region.
At ECOS, we minimize the coastal infrastructure design risk of facing adverse oceanographic conditions, by using an specific software which enables better decision-making.
