Morocco has an exceptional maritime potential especially on its two 500-km Mediterranean and 300-km Atlantic coastlines. The assessment of this potential for marine currents, wind and temperature is largely necessary for the various activities related to the coastline: fishing, exploitation of aggregates, tourism, transport services, desalination and marine renewable energies.
Morocco is engaged in a policy of preservation of the environment, the fight against global warming and reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. It is reviewing its 'electric mix' and promoting all renewable energies including marine energy.
The results of this study show clearly that Morocco can boast of the potential of its Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts, thanks to the strong winds that blow in the North Atlantic and around the city of Dakhla, at sea currents speeds in vicinity of the Strait of Gibraltar and the difference in temperature between the surface and deep sea.
We are particularly interested in the study of the behavior of the marine current, temperature and wind. This is based on monthly data provided by a credible website with free access and statistics from the MATLAB Software.
