CHONOS is an oceanographic web platform funded by the Chilean Ministry of Economy, Development, and Tourism, through aquaculture-related consultancy projects executed by IFOP and mandated by SUBPESCA.

CHONOS’s mission is to be a link between society and decision-makers, delivering relevant information to better understand the highly complex environment of Chilean Patagonia, so it can be managed under a framework of sustainable development, balancing environmental, conservation, and productive interests. Among the different web tools available at CHONOS, MOSA (Modelo Operacional SudAmérica) is the forecast model that delivers daily forecasts of physical variables for the inner seas and adjacent ocean of the Chilean Patagonia. MOSA is a scalable product thought to become an international reference in monitoring and predicting the seas of the Southeast Pacific Ocean.
