SOCIB stands for the Balearic Islands Coastal Observing and Forecasting System. This app provides direct and easy access to near real time observations and forecasts from the Balearic Sea area. It also provides an overview of the work that is being done at SOCIB.
The observational data are provided by a wide range of instruments such as oceanographic buoys, tide gauges, weather stations, gliders, research vessels, HF radar, drifters, beach cameras, etc. They allow the user to find out, in near real time, the values of variables such as sea water temperature, wave height/direction, sea level, wind speed/direction, air temperature, air pressure, …. along with images of Balearic beaches.
The forecast is updated daily and provides information about wave height/direction/period, current speed/direction, water temperature and salinity.
The app provides relevant information for activities such as sailing, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, diving, and for those who simply want to know the beach conditions. Please check out our disclaimer.
