Puertos del Estado is the Spanish Government Agency, under the tutelage of the Ministry of Public Works, responsible for the coordination and efficiency control of State-owned Spanish Port System (46 ports managed by 28 Port Authorities). Its Physical Oceanography Division, by means of the own-managed operational monitoring and forecasting oceanography services, provides to the Spanish port system, to other institutions and to the society met-ocean data essential to increase efficiency (reducing the costs and ensuring safety) in routine port operations as well as to support a sustained coastal and port management.
