The coast guard keeps an eye on the sea

Coast guard

Marine Forecasts

Do you want to know exactly what you will be up against at sea? 
Our coast guard partner Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS)/ Operational Directorate Natural Environment has the perfect solution:
Twice a day, 5-day forecasts are issued of the marine conditions in the North Sea and in the Belgian Coastal Waters. You can consult wind speed and wave height, but also sea salinity, wave peak period, sea surface elevation and many more.
It is the intention to further develop functionalities according to the wishes and needs of the users. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated and can be sent to
