NURE, Elisa C.  and  COLLINI, Estela A.. Application Of Gis Technology For The Representation Of Climate Marine Information In The South Atlantic Region. Meteorologica [online]. 2011, vol.36, n.1, pp.49-56. ISSN 1850-468X.

This article shows a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) application to marine climatic information data bases. These data bases are created following the World Meteorological Organization recommendations for applying statistical procedures to marine observations in order to elaborate Marine Climatic Summaries.  This GIS allows a dynamic visualization of maps, tables and graphics showing extreme values and frequencies of meteorological variables in time and space as well as the marine meteorological observations distribution over the South Atlantic Ocean.  The regional climatic marine information obtained using this technology, will be a useful tool for environmental related disciplines and, it will be also of valuable support for the safety of naval operations.

Keywords : GIS; Climatic; Statistical; Naval; Safety.
