    Incorporarán nueva Estación de Radar en Cayo Paredón Grande, Ciego de Ávila

    As part of the strengthening of the National Mareographic Network led by the GEOCUBA Business Group, the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICIMAR) and the Institute of Meteorology (INSMET), a new Radar Station will be incorporated to the north of Ciego de Ávila that will emit its real time data.

    According to the Master of Science Yohanis de la Torre Galiano, Technical Director of the Project "Building coastal resilience in Cuba through natural solutions for adaptation to Climate Change", this action will provide the country with the possibility of permanently registering reports on the level from sea.

    «The technology to add this tide measurement station to the three already existing ones is already in the country. With this, it will be possible to territorially expand the data coverage for the characterization. Besides, it will be potential to forecast events and processes of various origins of sea level variability, such as variations caused by extreme weather events; astronomical tidal oscillations; and even the occurrence of tsunamis, with a significant influence on low-lying coasts and lagoon systems, for example those that geographically characterize the Sabana-Camagüey archipelago.

    »One cannot fail to mention the great value that these measurements represent for hazard, vulnerability, and risk studies that can be carried out more successfully on a local scale; research and executive projects of dynamics and coastal engineering; ecological investigations; environmental management; adaptation based on ecosystems, and in general for Integrated Coastal Management”, added the specialist.

    In the long term, with the permanence of measurements for years, it will also be possible to improve the calculation of the rate of rise of the mean sea level in this coastal sector, and in general in Cuba.
