Severe weather and rough sea state pose challenges on vessels' ability to navigate safely. The key objectives of Vessel Traffic Management (VTM) are to enhance the safe use of the waterways and efficiency of traffic movement. Therefore it is vital for VTM centers to have access to local meteorological/hydrological information. Accurate and timely information is needed to guarantee uninterrupted operations, improve maritime safety, efficiency of navigation, and to assist the on-board decision-making processes.
