H20, one of the most recognised chemical symbols, can either help or hurt. In the context of the ocean, tidal energy has the ability to be converted into power and provide electricity. Who knew?

Iliad researchers develop an operational model chain to assess the hazards of accidental oil spills at sea

A recent study conducted by the EU-funded Iliad project applied a sophisticated operational oil spill model to test the oil dispersive properties and to reveal the relative magnitude of weathering processes, after an accidental oil spill release along the main tanker transportation route in the North Aegean Sea. Currently, the simulation refers to a theoretical scenario, which however has high probabilities to become true.

A digital twin is a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object or process, said Prof. Georgios Sylaios of the Democritus University of Thrace at the kick off conference of the EU-funded Iliad Project held online on February 1, 2022.

The Earth's oceans are vast and cover more than 70% of its surface. Scientists have been studying, monitoring and modelling the oceans for many decades to further our understanding. In todays, data rich world, creating a digital representation of the ocean is becoming a reality.
