The Brazilian Equatorial Margin contains the largest continuous mangrove area in the world - 80% of Brazil's mangroves - and is also a new frontier for oil exploration and production in the country. It was in this region that a multidisciplinary team composed by Prooceano, Enauta and 3 universities (UERJ, UFRJ and UFPA) came together

Tendral Ocean Prediction System (WHG-TOPS) Emulator

The Woods Hole Group – Tendral Ocean Prediction System (WHG-TOPS) Emulator is a real-time model correction tool developed in response to offshore energy industry needs for the rapid assimilation of in-situ data and the generation of accurate fine-scale ocean forecasts. The Emulator generates thousands of ocean states based on WHG-TOPS (or any ocean model) to
