CMCC Foundation has simulated possible trajectories of objects in the water for the incident at sea occurred in the Atlantic where two Italian sailors, who were onboard Bright, the Oceanis 473 Clipper, are missing since the 3rd of May.
CMCC has distributed the information to the Maritime Authorities engaged in the Search and rescue operations.
The simulations are done by CMCC upon Currents (provided by Copernicus Marine Service) and wind (ECMWF products provided by Italian Met Office) products used to force the LEEWAY object trajectory model further developed by CMCC.
The bulletin contains the forecast of objects transport in the accident area in support of search and rescue (SAR) operations.
As the initial position of the Clipper is highly uncertain, we based our simulation on sources OF INFORMATION we found on the WEB.
The information and views set out in this Bulletin are those of the authors (CMCC) and do not necessarily reflect the official opinion of the governments of the area. CMCC does not guarantee the accuracy of the data included in this study. Neither CMCC nor any person acting on the author’s behalf may be held responsible for the use, which may be made of the information contained therein.
