Drifty is a web service from MET Norway for running OpenDrift simulations. OpenDrift is an open-source library for modeling the trajectory of objects and substances drifting in the ocean.

The Drifty API is primarily meant for organizations who work with rescue and recovery operations, and needs:

  • Access to a highly available service for running drift simulations.
  • To integrate the results of drift simulations into their own tooling/dashboards.

Please read about the terms of use for the API, as well as MET's privacy policy statement

For non-urgent questions/wishes/etc, please e-mail us at drifty@met.no, and your request will be directed to the appropriate people. If you are an existing user, you will be given a phone number at which you can reach us directly when there are urgent operational needs.
