Jellyfish dispersion model

Project acronym: MED-JELLYRISK
Project title: Integrated monitoring of jellyfish outbreaks under anthropogenic and climatic impacts in the Mediterranean sea: trophic and socio-economic risks
Thematic cluster: 2. Environmental sustainability
Sub-cluster: Sub-cluster 2.E Integrated coastal zone management
Deliverable: Jellyfish dispersion model
With the jellyfish dispersion mode, users (after registration) can track the forecasted pathway, for the next four days, of a jellyfish bloom they observe in the waters around the Maltese islands. The aim of the model is to implement a decision-support system for coastal managers by providing an early warning system of the occurrence of high jellyfish densities within particular stretches.
