MarineAware - Riskaware

Enhanced modelling for maritime incidents and oil spills

MarineAware is a modelling and data visualisation platform for supporting response to oil spills at sea. It combines dispersion modelling and source identification capabilities with an intuitive web-based user interface, to assist with recording, locating, mitigating and cleaning up oil spills. MarineAware can be utilised for coordinating responses to live incidents or for modelling theoretical scenarios as part of readiness planning or risk assessment activities.

Components Detail

MarineAware includes an oil spill dispersion model which has been independently validated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, as well as algorithms for identifying the source of an oil spill, which have been developed in partnership with Oxford University’s Pattern Analysis and Machine Learning Research Group.

MarineAware can be deployed as a standalone product to provide these modelling capabilities, or integrated with other capabilities. For example, MarineAware was integrated with an automatic satellite detection system to create the EASOS Marine Watch service, currently being used by the Malaysian government to monitor and mitigate oil spills which occur in and around the Malacca Straits.

More Information & Case Study


Platform Overview

The MarineAware platform has been developed through our work with the Malaysian Government, Satellite Application Catapult and 4 Earth Intelligence, and offers an end-to-end oil spill response and management platform. Entirely cloud-based, the system doesn’t require the installation of any infrastructure to run providing a globally accessible, complete situational overview in one interface.

River Detectives Case Study

To support BART and their River Detectives, we developed a platform to help coordinate the volunteers and share their results. Thanks for the efficiencies provided by the platform, BART have been able to expand the project and enrol many more volunteers.

Projects & Partners

We work closely with our partners, integrating new capabilities into the MarineAware platform to deliver tailored products for different customer needs. For example, we created a unique detection and modelling service for the Malaysian government, Marine Watch, in collaboration with Satellite Applications Catapult (SAC) and Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML). We have also partnered with 4 Earth Intelligence (4EI) on various projects, using their powerful satellite-derived marine environment data to further enhance the situational awareness in our modelling.
