Moreover the paradigm of a single factor limiting plankton blooms, is presently giving way to co-limitation by light, and the nutrients N, P, Si and Fe. Primary production, export into the deep sea, and CO2 uptake from the atmosphere together form the `biological pump` in Ocean Biogeochemical Climate Models (OBCM`s). Thus far OBCM`s assume just one limiting nutrient (P) and one universal phytoplankton species, for deriving C budgets and CO2 exchange. New realistic OBCM`s will be developed for budgeting and exchanges of both CO2 and DMS, implementing... (i) co-limitation by 4 nutrients of 5 major taxonomic classes of phytoplankton, (ii) DMS(P) pathways, (iii) global iron cycling, (iv) chemical forms of iron, (v) iron supply into surface waters. The new OBCM`s developed during IRONAGES will predict realistic climate scenario`s, most notably climatic feedbacks on oceanic biogeochemistry.

To be the most comprehansive and easily used source of information about marine habitats, communities and species around Britain and Ireland and their sensitivity to natural events and human impacts MarLIN will provide network acess to marine life data and use that information for a wide range of users including coastal zone managers, scientists, school children and the general public."@en ; rdfs:label "The Marine Life Information Network for Britain and Ireland"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-06-30"^^ ; dct:subject , ; geolink:hasAcronym "MarLIN"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2002-05-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1999-01-06"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The observations during ILWAO-I allowed us to associate shear-bands with regions of enhanced mixing. But the vertical resolution was too low to study the breaking process in detail. We plan to base new observations in the Bornholm Basin on a nested instrumental approach using various short-term deployments: the water column of approximately 90 m depth will be sampled simultaneously with different moored ADCPs and moored CTD loggers, each covering different temporal and spatial resolution. Apart from this bottom-mounted instrumentation, we plan to locate an instrument platform directly inside the shear-bands mentioned above. Mixing parameters will be provided from (a) simultaneous microstructure ship observations, and (b) from the structure function approach to infer dissipation rates from high-resolution velocity profiles. With this, we will be able to resolve individual shear-instabilities, and relate them to the large-scale internal-wave field and local changes in mixing. Our second study site will be the Gotland Basin, the largest of the deep basins of the central Baltic Sea, where IOW has recently established an autonomous profiling station. We plan to extend this profiler platform with instrumentation to infer internal-wave parameters and mixing rates at the vertical scale of individual shear-instabilities. Shear data at sufficiently high resolution will be provided by an acoustic current meter, and high-resolution stratification will be measured by the existing CTD system.

Global climate change will particularly impact eastern boundary upwelling regions by a combination of different stressors: increasing temperatures, acidification and deoxygenation. The main focus of the proposed study is the coastal upwelling off southern Africa. We will study its variability forced locally by the wind field and remotely by both wave propagation and water mass advection from the equatorial region, its interaction with the open ocean, and its response to climate change with its impact on rainfall of the region. Our collaborative project will address physical mechanisms of regional climate variability with profound impact on ocean biogeochemistry, hypoxia and marine ecosystems. We will use dedicated observing systems, experiments at sea as well as various modeling approaches in order to study intraseasonal to long term changes of the southwest African coastal upwelling system (SACUS) and the overlying atmosphere to finally improve climate predictions for southern Africa. The project aims at building and expanding local capacities required for the monitoring and prediction of the variability of the upwelling system and of the climate of surrounding land areas by cooperative research, joint summer/winter schools and scientist/technician exchange, by teaching of PhD students from southern African countries at German Universities, by research cruises open for southern African participants and by providing data and model output for analysis at southern African universities and institutes."@en ; rdfs:label "Southwest African Coastal Upwelling System and Benguela Nino's"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2018-07-19"^^ ; dct:subject , , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "SACUS"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2018-06-30"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2013-07-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , , , , . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:name "ALEMANY LLODRA, FRANCISCO" . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment ""@en ; rdfs:label "UVLiBS: Development and application of a UV-C fouling protection system for MARNET stations"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2020-07-09"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "UVLiBS"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2019-07-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2018-08-06"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Prof. Guram Buachidze; G.

More specifically, it will be sought to estimate the extent of population mixing of these stocks in the feeding grounds (north and south Atlantic), and to estimate the levels of gene flow between them. Special attention will be paid on the Mediterranean stock, which as strong evidence suggests, should be considered as an endangered population. We propose to describe the migration and distribution patterns of the three stocks in the feeding grounds of the Atlantic, to check for a within Mediterranean sub-structure by genetic characterization of eggs and/or larvae, or juveniles, and to study variation in gene frequencies between different generations in the Mediterranean. As very little is known on the distribution of the Mediterranean stock in the feeding grounds of Atlantic, it is impossible to correlate a specific fishing pressure in this area with the observed response of the Mediterranean stock. The presently proposed project could give the information needed, by intensive sampling and assignments of specimens to differentiated groups on the basis of their combined genotypes on three to five microsatellite markers (already developed and proved efficient). The reference material on the basis of which fished animals all around the Atlantic will be classified, will be constituted by samples from the three main spawning grounds (Mediterranean, Gulf of Mexico and Tropical Atlantic).

Measurements of the concentration levels of contaminants in the environment should be correlated to the quantities being disposed. These results will give information about transport, distribution and chemical fate of contaminants in the abiotic compartment of the environment. Next it is essential to know the fate of the substances in the biotic compartment: uptake, distribution, elimination, biotransformation. Finally, it should be possible to relate any effect of a contaminant with its active concentration in the biophase. The consequences of the introduction of contaminating quantities of substances normally present in the marine environment in low concentrations (such as heavy metals and certain polyaromatic hydrocarbons) and the emission of anthropogenic (industrially synthesized) compounds (such as halogenated hydrocarbons: insecticides, polychlorinated biphenyls), find expression at all integration levels of the biota, from molecule to ecosystem (Everaarts, 1986). The quality of the marine environment can be assessed by measuring certain physical and chemical parameters in water and sediment. However, the results of such studies can not be extrapolated directly to the biota, which therefore should be investigated separately. Here, two possible main research approaches are usually followed: 1. Measurements of concentration levels of contaminants in biota., such as the 'Global Mussel Watch' approach (Goldberg, 1975; Farrington et al., 1987). 2. Measurements of toxicological and biochemical responses to enhanced concentrations of contaminants as a measure of the impairment of physiological and biological processes in organisms both under experimental laboratory conditions and as occurring in their natural habitat The research objectives focus on three main topics: 1..

This interdisciplinary program will mount intensive field studies of the physical and biological processes at the Arctic Front in the Barents Sea and at the boundary of the Norwegian/Iceland seas. It seeks improved quantitative knowledge of: the physical processes of biological importance, especially those related to phytoplankton production such as mixing and/or convergence, sea ice and the influence of light spectra; variability in frontal position and their mechanisms; the detailed linkages between zooplankton and phytoplankton as a function of size; biomass accumulation as a function of prey and predators; and how fish use the front for feeding and growth, especially their relationship with zooplankton. Instruments and techniques not previously used or attempted in Norway, such as moored fluorometers and autonomous gliders (with both physical and biological sensors) that can sample for extended periods and penetrate close to the ice will be used along with more tradition methods. To maximize the information on trophic linkages, careful consideration is being made to match the appropriate sampling scales. Model and retrospective studies will support interpretation of the observations. Comparative analyses will be carried out, first between the Barents and Nordic seas and then with subarctic seas of the Northwest Atlantic and North Pacific as well as Arctic regions, especially with other members of the ESSAR consortium. These comparisons should provide insights into what are the fundamental processes in arctic and subarctic marine ecosystems and what are regionally unique.

The aquatic ecosystems imply better chances of survival and dispersal of introduced species and are more difficult to monitor than terres-trial ecosystems thus high-lightening them from a risk perspective. The programme will focus on: i) Evaluating the risks on the ecosystem level for organisms having specific functions or attributes; ii) Identifying the types of aquatic ecosystems that are most vulnerable to introductions and which kind of organism will pose the largest threat in different environments; iii) Tools for risk analyses and assessments; iv) Economic analyses of efficient risk management. The emphasis of the entire programme will be on risks at the ecosystem level to elucidate general patterns of success or failure in marine, brackish and freshwater ecosystems. Four different types of organisms will be studied: Macroalgae, vascular plants, invertebrates and fish. Those will be studied for patterns of species characteristics such as those facilitating dispersal, settling, establishment and reproduction. Patterns of site characteristics will include heterogeneity in space and time, biodiversity of recipients in comparison to non-invaded areas as well as vector influences.

This, in combination with other National and International legislation, has provoked paint manufacturers and chemical companies to develop and vend a range of agents for ne v antifouling paints for the lucrative small boat market and as an addition to TBT-based fornulations to enhance efficacy for larger vessels. Examples of the types of compounds being used or promoted include: 2,3,5,6-tetrachloro4-(methyl sulphonyl) pyridine; 2methylthio-4-tertiary-butylamino-6-cyclopropylamino-s-triazine (IRGAROL 1051); cuprous thiocyanate; 2,4,5,6-tetrachlora iso phthalo nitrile; 4,5-dichloro-2-n-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (SeaNine 211); dichlorophenyl dimethylurea (Diuron); 2(thiocyanomethyl thio)benzthiazole; zincpyrithione; 4-chloro-meta-cresol; arsenic trioxide; cis 1-(3-chloroallyl)- 3,5,7-triazal-azonia adamantane chloride; zineb; dichlofluanid; folpet; thirarn; oxy tetracycline hydrochloride; zirarn and maneb. This lisl includes compounds which are known to be highly toxic (e.g. cyanides, arsenicals) or to act as endocrine disruptors (e.g. maneb, ziram) but negligible data concerning contamination, (potential) effects and risks of these compounds in the coastal and marine environment are available. Antifouling paints are a neccessity for shipping operators and are considered to be indispensible by owners of small boats. Consequently, the market of antifouling paints is large. Effective alternatives to TBT-based antifoulings have a large perspective from the commercial point of view. Without a well-founded management strategy, however, large environmental problems may lay await. IRGAROL may be an exarnple. Recent publications indicate that current levels of contamination in European coastal zones will give rise to perturbations in coastal phytoplankton communities. This concern has led the Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Pollution (GESAMP) of the United Nations to consider this compound into more detail. The information on IRGAROL as well on other alternatives is, however, very limited. This proposed project has the objective to provide information and tools which enable environmental managers at national and international levels to address the issue of antifouling agents in a systematic, effective manner in an early stage of the use ol these compounds. In this manner, a contribution is made to prevention of problems. The following activities are to be carried out: 1. to survey antifouling agents and products being used and marketed; 2. to assess geographical patterns / differences in usage; 3. to establish a database with environmental and toxicological properties of these compounds using information from literature or employing data generated in the project; 4. to develop suitably sensitive analytical techniques to measure environmental levels and to intercompare analyses 5. to assess the extent of contamination of European coastlines 6. to investigate fates and effects in (semi-) field conditions 7. to predict future concentrations levels and effects in a selected European coastal zones with models using the data obtained; 8. to compare the products regarding environmental properties (fate, toxicity) and effects using different scenarios for usage. Partners involved comprise expert analytical /environmental and ecotoxicological institutions with considerable experience in marine science.

The nature of the coastline depends on the local conditions of geology and water flow. Rocky coastlines are found where the energy of the sea is high, while mud and sand are found where the energy is lower and these sediments can be deposited. These low energy muddy and sandy (depositional) habitats, are very important for the ecology and economy of the UK. They provide food for many species of birds and fish, but also protect the coastline from the erosive forces of the sea. In addition, they act as a \"filter\", where pollutants from the rivers are captured and eventually degraded. Because of the importance of these systems, their natural behaviour and stability is of increasing concern as sea levels rise and storm events increase in frequency with climate change. The movement of sediment around the coast of Britain has vast economic and ecological consequences, but surprisingly we have very little scientific information that helps us to predict how natural mudflats and beaches will respond to the changing forces of the tides, wind and waves. When water flows over the sea bottom, the energy of the flow shapes the sediment into wavy features called bedforms (such as ripples). These bedforms help control the erosion and transport of sand, mud, nutrients and pollutants. Information allowing us to predict the shape, size and movement of bedforms is essential for environmental management, hydraulic engineering, benthic habitat biology, computer modelling of particle transport, sedimentary geology, and many other scientific disciplines. However, there is an almost complete lack of knowledge concerning bedforms consisting of mixtures of sand and mud. Sandy sediments are known to be \"non-cohesive\", because the sand particles do not stick together, whereas muds are made up of smaller particles that do stick together and so are called \"cohesive\" sediments. This project, COHBED, will take advantage of the latest developments in measurement technologies to produce information about the growth, movement and stability of bedforms that consist of natural mixtures of sands and muds, a natural condition that is very common but has rarely been studied before. In a new departure, this work includes a multidisciplinary team to combine the physics, mathematics, sedimentology, and biology of these systems, since we recognise that the organisms (from bacteria to sea grasses) that inhabit natural systems also change the erosional characteristics and bedform behaviour. This is why COHBED will include laboratory experiments and field surveys. A series of experiments in laboratory flow channels will investigate key factors that control the behaviour and properties of bedforms, such as: - System energy: effects of flow velocity, bed friction and flow depth - Bed properties: particle size, proportion of mud and sand, and biological effects - Time: the speed of bedform growth and rate of change as flow energy changes - Particle erosion: changes in the bedforms as smaller particles are eroded away The results of the laboratory studies will be compared with the behaviour of natural systems. Field surveys will be conducted to validate the predictions derived from the laboratory studies, using new techniques that for the first time allow essential simultaneous measurements of flow, sediment and bedform properties. The COHBED project will maintain the UK at the forefront of this research area and will help us to manage our coasts in the face of climate change."@en ; rdfs:label "Realistic Sedimentary Bedform Prediction: Incorporating Physical and Biological Cohesion"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2020-06-09"^^ ; dct:subject , , , , , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "COHBED"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2015-07-04"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2012-01-05"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , , , , , , , . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment ""@en ; rdfs:label "Development of an optimum gear for fishing of the Japanese snail (Rapana thomasiana) that has economic importance in the Black Sea and determination of its basi"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2010-01-20"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "DPT Proje No: BAP-07-01-DPT.2003K120540-18"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2007-01-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2006-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "DPT Proje No: BAP-07-01-DPT.2003K120540-18"@en ] . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "AKES (Antarctic Krill and Ecosystem Studies) is IMR’s project to investigate target strength of krill (Euphausia superba) and mackerel ice fish (Champsocephalus gunnari), and the abundance of pelagic fish and squid in the Bouvetøy area.

According to FAO data, at the end of 1970s and mid 1980s, the catches of small pelagic fishes (mainly anchovy and sprat) averaged about 520 thousand tons, making up 76% of total fish catches. At the end of 1980s and beginning of 1990s, the stocks of anchovy and sprat decreased almost three times due to deterioration of food zooplanktoncaused by strong antropogenic impacts and introduced alien predator Mnemiopsis leidyi into the Black Sea (Kideys, 2002). Last decade anchovy and sprat catches have been recovering gradually up to 318 thousand tons annually (for period of 1995-2000 yr.). For successful fishery management, along with controlling fish catches, information about well-being or condition of fish stocks is essential. Biochemical indicators are widely used for the estimation of condition of fish and zooplankton. It was shown that accumulation level of energy reserves (i.e. mainly lipids) is the indicator of nutritional condition for many marine animals (Shulman & Love, 1999). Lipid indicators were used for the estimation anchovy condition in different parts of the Black Sea and these surveys allowed to predict exact time and character of anchovy migration to the wintering regions where the main fish catches took place (Shulman, 1974; 2002; Shulman & Dobrovolov, 1979; Chaschin & Akselev, 1987). Monitoring of the Black Sea sprat condition have being carried out during more than 40 last years at the Institute for the Biology of the Southern Seas (IBSS), Sevastopol (Shulman et al., 1974; Shulman et al., 1993; Minyuk et al., 1997; Shulman et al., in press). It is based on the determination of lipid accumulation in sprat body at the end of feeding period. It was shown this indicator, which closely related to variability of fodder zooplankton biomass in different part of the sea, determines fish fecundity and so next generation’s numbers and biomass. On the whole, analyses of long-term changes of the lipid content in sprat body have shown that this indicator responded to changes in environment of the fish, including climatic changes, antropogenic impact, etc ."@en ; rdfs:label "Monitoring of anchovy and sprat nutritional condition in the Black Sea"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-12-24"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "Sinop-Sea Search- 105Y028-TUBITAK- NASU"@en ; prov:startedAtTime "2005-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey - Environment, Athmosphere, Earth and Marine Sciences Research Grant Group"@en ] .

The study area is located in the Kerguelen Plateau region and the 52-day research cruise was undertaken in November-December 2008. The fieldwork included the deployment of a variety of instrumentation designed to measure a variety of standard and novel physical oceanographic parameters. Data collected included: underway navigation; bathymetry including multibeam swath bathymetry; current velocities; temperature; salinity; water samples for analysis of salinity; microstructure and turbulence data. Multi-instrument moorings were also deployed: three for approximately 2.5 weeks during the SOFine cruise and a further two were recovered in early 2010. The moored instruments measured current velocities, microstructure, temperature and salinity using a variety of instrumentation. Several floats and drifters, measuring temperature and salinity, were also deployed during the cruise. SOFine involves the collaboration of a number of international institutions: the National Oceanography Centre (UK), the University of East Anglia (UK), British Antarctic Survey (UK), Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (US), the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia), the University of Tasmania (Australia) and the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences (IFM-GEOMAR), University of Kiel (Germany).

Bottom trawling is known to have strong direct and indirect effects on the diversity of benthic communities, sediment structures and biogeochemical processes at the sea floor. Additionally, bottom trawling impacts the water column due to resuspension of sediment and release of nutrients and pollutants. At present, the habitat types worthy of protection under the Flora-Fauna-Habitat Directive in the Natura 2000 areas of the EEZ are not excluded from bottom trawl fishing and hence there are hardly any undisturbed sea floor areas in the German parts of the North and the Baltic Sea. Further, for the Baltic Sea there exist no comprehensive investigations to estimate the actual impact of bottom trawling on the ecosystem. As the exclusion of bottom trawling activities from the Natura 2000 areas is currently planned, this constitutes an excellent opportunity to assess and follow the development of these ecosystems and their biodiversity and functions after termination of bottom trawling.

It is also within this respect that different monitoring programmes or methodologies were drafted. For example one of the most frequently used is the COPERT model for the reporting of emissions resulting from road-vehicles. With respect to the reporting of ship emissions there is no consistent reporting mechanism, methodology nor monitoring programme. Since Belgium however needs to comply with international and European agreements a monitoring programme is needed. This study focuses on the feasibility of such a monitoring programme and will give an inside in the availability of different datasets and the bottlenecks that can be encountered. Methodology The project combines a general overview of existing information with regard to legislation, monitoring programmes and emission data with the setting up of a new monitoring programme for the estimation of emissions resulting from ships within Belgian jurisdiction. This project will be directly relevant towards the Belgian obligations regarding international agreements and will be accomplished through a sequence of different workpackages (tasks). In workpackage one the existing information will be evaluated. A brief overview of existing air-legislation on a international, European and national (regional) level will be provided. This is necessary in order to get a clear view on the agreements made and in order to determine whether Belgian can comply with the international or European made agreements. In this first workpackage an overview is also given of the traffic volume, type of ships and their expected emissions. Only ships entering Belgian Sea-ports (Ostend, Seabruges, Antwerp and Ghent) will be considered in this study. In workpackages 2 and 3 the existing monitoring programme, which currently only focuses on bunker fuel related emissions will be analyzed and bottlenecks will be listed. In a following workpackage a feasibility study on a new approach will be carried out. This new approach will focus on traffic related datasets. Again bottlenecks that were encountered will be listed and a quality control system will be drafted. Further on, emissions from sea-going vessels in Belgian seas (seashore and continental shelf ? ships entering a Belgian Sea-port) will be forecasted for the year 2010 under a well-defined business-as-usual scenario. Comparing these figures to those of 1990, gives Belgian policy makers inside in the role sea-going vessels could play within the Kyoto Protocol.

If the west (Atlantic coast) is colonised with cold water species G. setosus, it means that its boreal counterpart G. oceanicus crawls slowly along the coast of West Spitsbergen, and was not able to colonise the outer Island coast yet. If the opposite is true, it is likely, that Gammarus oceanicus is supplied from the Norway and West European mainland with the sea currents (e.g. riding on the litter drifting along). The main conclusion show that Prins Karl Forlandet is colonised mainly with boreal Gammarus oceanicus, with few isolated locations where local, arctic Gammarus setosus prevails. As the arctic species is still present on the West coast of the island, exposed for the strongest Atlantic waters influence, it more likely, that the boreal species is colonising the island slowly, crawling from the outer part of Isfjorden.

Traditional methods are not suited to marine ecosystems with slow dynamics.

OBSEA is a cabled seafloor observatory located 4 km off the Vilanova i la Geltru coast in a fishing protected area. It is connected to the coast by an energy and communications mixed cable. The main advantages of having a cabled observatory are that it provides an uninterrupted power supply to the scientific instruments and offers a high bandwidth communication link. This way, real time data is available and problems encountered in battery powered systems are avoided. The proposed solution is the implementation of an optical Ethernet network that transmits data continuously to marine sensors connected to the observatory. With OBSEA, we can perform a real time observation of multiple parameters in the marine medium. The station located on shore provides the power supply and a fiber optics communication link and at the same time carries out alarm management tasks and stores data.

This deep-sea area located between Hawaii and Mexico has water depths of 4000 to 6000 meters and is densely covered with polymetallic nodules, also called manganese nodules, which are about 3 to 8 centimetres in diameter. They on average contain 30% manganese and about 3% of copper, nickel and cobalt. Especially these last three metals form an important future source of raw material. Further trace metals occurring in economically significant concentrations in the nodules are titanium, molybdenum, lithium and neodymium. The manganese nodule resource in the German license area comprises ca. 900 million tons wet weight, which translates to ca. 600 million tons dry weight. The regulations on prospecting and exploration of manganese nodules adopted by the ISA require each contractor to gather environmental baseline data during the 15 years exploration phase. Based on such data, the likely effects of possible future mining can be estimated and assessed before intervention within the deep-sea realm actually takes place. Studies of benthic species composition, population densities and connectivity form the most important component of these environmental analyses. In addition to the collection of biological data, detailed analyses of the oceanographic and sedimentological characteristics of the license area must be carried out (e.g. current strengths and directions, particle concentrations in the water column, shear strengths, composition and grain size of the sediment, seafloor topography). In order to determine the possible effects of future mining on the fauna, contractors should use the above-mentioned baseline data to define pristine areas (Preservation Reference Zones) against which impacted areas (Impact Reference Zones) can be compared. To allow for comparability, both reference zones should have similar species compositions, species densities, nodule abundances and sedimentological characteristics. As the spatial distribution of manganese nodules is not uniform throughout the area, large undisturbed zones will remain in between economically attractive areas. The recolonisation of disturbed areas could then take place from these neighbouring unaffected zones."@en ; rdfs:label "Manganese Nodule Exploration in Areas Licensed to Germany"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2018-07-01"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "MANGAN"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2021-07-18"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2006-07-19"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "Study to estimate the accidental catches of marine turtles Caretta caretta in the Mediterranean and identify the regulatory measures to reduce the bycatch of this specie under the EC regulations harmonizing the fishery methodologies.

Most of the produced methane is oxidized aerobically by known methanotrophs. However, a major part of the methane that is produced in deep marine sediments is oxidized under anaerobic conditions by unknown bacteria. This process is important because: i) it contributes significantly to the global carbon cycle, ii) it reduces methane emission to the atmosphere where it would contribute to global warming as a potent green-house gas, iii) no pure culture (or even an enrichment) of bacteria capable of carrying out the reaction has been described, iv) methane is a very inert molecule that is difficult to activate prior to its oxidation. How the process is accomplished in the absence of oxygen remains a mystery, but it is clear that the terminal electron acceptor in marine environments is sulfate and that sulfate reducing bacteria must be involved in the process. We have as part of an earlier SNF supported research project succeeded in using molecular tools to identify a novel phylogenetic lineage of sulfate reducing bacteria that appear to be involved in the process. In the present project we will exploit this information to: i) develop molecular detection tools for sulfate reducing bacteria involved in anaerobic methane oxidation; ii) determine the distribution of these organisms in various environments; iii) retrieve more genetic information about the metabolic capabilities of these organisms; and iv) use the detection tools and the genetic information in novel attempts to cultivate the sulfate reducing bacteria involved in anaerobic methane oxidation on other substrates than methane."@en ; rdfs:label "Anaerobic Methane Oxidation in Marine Sediments"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-02-10"^^ ; dct:subject , , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "AMOS"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2003-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2001-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The primary aim of the Marine RTDI Networking & Technology Transfer Initiative is to support, enhance and consolidate the performance of the Irish marine RTDI sector through providing grant-aid support for Networking and Technology Transfer Initiatives.

Viruses may be an important mortality factor of M. pusilla with a major impact on population dynamics. However data of virally mediated mortality of M. pusilla in European waters are lacking. The limited knowledge on virally induced mortality of M. pusilla indicates that the loss rate due to viral infection is comparable to microzooplankton grazing rates for picophytoplankton in the size class of M. pusilla. Whether phytoplankton are grazed upon or die due to viral lysis, however, has major implications for biogeochemical cycles in marine pelagic food webs. The Release of the algal cell content into the surrounding water upon lysis will result in DOM production, which directly promotes bacterial production. Ecosystem models including virally mediated lysis of phytoplankton show that up to 26% of the organic carbon flows through the viral shunt, with a 33% increase in bacterial production and respiration. A rapid release of intracellular DMSP to the dissolved pool due to viral lysis of M. pusilla has been reported. Since DMSP is the principle source of DMS and its release fascilitates bacterial degradation to this trace gas that affects cloud cover, viral lysis might indirectly influence global climate. However, to what extent viral lysis of M. pusilla occurs under natural conditions and thus, to what degree it contributes to biogeochemical fluxes is still largely unknown. This study should clarify the ecological importance of virus infection for the widely distributed picoplankter M. pusilla. Through an integrated study the occurrence and abundance of MpV, as well as the genetic diversity and clonal variation of MpV, and the impact of viruses on M. pusilla mortality and population dynamics will be assessed. Different geographical locations will be studied on a temporal scale in order to allow unique and optimal insight into the contribution of M. pusilla and its specific viruses to C-flux within the pelagic food web. It will be for the first time that a detailed comparative study on the importance of M. pusilla and virus infection as regulating factor will be executed on such a spatially as well as temporarily scale. Newly developed techniques will be used to detecte and quantitate M. pusilla and specific virus. The present study will also explore the existence of distinct populations of MpV for the different study sites. The results of this timely proposed project will largely advance our comprehension of the importance of picophytoplankton and viral control of picophytoplankton population dynamics. The results are expected to provide new insights in our understanding of the functioning and structure of marine pelagic food webs and geochemical cycling. The obtained data will, furthermore, be essential for a more accurate evaluation of mathematical ecosystem models."@en ; rdfs:label "MICROVIR (NIOZ-project)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2016-02-15"^^ ; dct:subject ; geolink:hasAcronym "NIOZ-MICROVIR"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2008-11-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2005-11-01"^^ . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "Environmental Monitoring Plan for the LNG Porto Viro (RO, Italy).

In the Nordic Environmental Research Programme, it was considered essential to concentrate the resources on Baltic research to a geographically limited area and to focus on research projects which study processes of importance for the exchange and balance of eutrophying and toxic substances between land sea. Thus, the Gulf of Riga was chosen for scientific as well as environmental reasons. The objective of the joint five-years Gulf of Riga Project is to study environmental problems in the Gulf and its darinage area, and to determine their impact on the rest of the Baltic Sea in general and the Baltic Proper particular. The first three yaers of research have provides both expected and surprising results on processes, inputs, and environmental effects in the Gulf of Riga. These result will now be further complement, elaborated and eventually fed into planning of water protection measures in the Gulf. An important part of the project has been to build up a common database to serve as a basis for substances budget calculations and model analyses to test various hypotheses concerning which sources and substances have key roles in the eutrophication of the marine ecosistem. Certain environmentally toxic substances and critical processes which control concentrations and distributions patterns in the Gulf of Riga ant the exchange with the Baltic Proper. Another important aspect of the project is to collect data for the planning of water protection measures in the Gulf of Riga. A prerequisite for participation in the project is that the Nordic countries contribute national resources to 50 per cent.

It is a mixture of mainly seaweed and macroalgae, seashells, garbage and other flotsam. After storms, for example, it can cover beaches for weeks and rot into a stinking mass. This is a real problem for local communities, especially those whose local economies are based on tourism. They spend a lot of money on beach cleaning, but are caught in a network of different interests of tourism associations, environmental and nature conservation, coastal protection and disposal modalities. The aim of CONTRA (COnversion of a Nuisance to a Resource and Asset) is to combine the current knowledge about the sustainability of beach wrack eliminations in the Baltic Sea region. In five sub-projects and seven case studies, the ecological, social and economic aspects of the various collection and reuse options will be compiled and evaluated. Possible examples of use are: for coastal protection and dune formation, as fertilizer or soil improver, as bio-cover for landfills, for biogas production and the production of biochar. The project will develop a so-called \"tool kit\" with innovative recycling options and management strategies in order to provide municipalities with a catalogue of actions with individual solutions for the greatest economic and ecological benefit. In this project, a considerable cross-disciplinary stakeholder network of municipalities, companies, authorities and scientific institutes works together in an international network of 14 partners and 21 associated partners from six Baltic Sea countries (DE, SE, DK, PL, EE, RUS) and is coordinated by the University of Rostock. https://www.oekologie.uni-rostock.de/en/forschung/aktuelle-projekte/contra/"@en ; rdfs:label "COnversion of a Nuisance to a Resource and Asset (CONTRA)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2020-08-10"^^ ; dct:subject , , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "CONTRA"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2021-06-30"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2019-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , , , , , , , , , ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020"@en ] . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "A project was developed concerning the operational system of surveillance and the recording of episodic events in the Baltic Sea.

Forming a focused TRM on each of the receivers of the VLA will allow, in principle, the detection of any acoustic reflecting object perturbing the acoustic field when crossing the barrier.

The variability of phytoplankton biomass and species composition is very high both in time and space and depends largely from hydrodynamic processes accompanied by water movement and mixing, and transport of nutrients. The cyclonic general circulation scheme and estuary like inclination of density isopycn have been considered as one reason for higher productivity in the northern coastal sea of the Gulf of Finland. In shorter time scale the wind-induced vertical mixing and upwelling events (both coastal an offshore) are more important processes which bring nutrient rich water from lower layers to the upper layers and which form the patchy pattern in phytoplankton distribution. The sediments in the Gulf of Finland are significant sources of bioavailable phosphorus and in the present state the ecosystem of the Gulf of Finland is very sensitive to increased sediment effluxes of nutrients. Therefore it is necessary to investigate more closely the general hydrographical regime and related possible nutrient fluxes to the upper layers to be able to differentiate and demonstrate the importance of internal loading to the Gulfs ecosystem. The main goals of the project are: 1) to describe the hydrographical regime in a sea area between Tallinn and Helsinki during two different seasons in spring and summer; 2) to describe the concentrations of dissolved inorganic nutrients and their variability in depth, space and time in the sea area under investigation in spring and summer; 3) to describe the variability of phytoplankton biomass and species composition in the sea area under investigation in spring and summer; 4) to demonstrate the link between the variability of nutrient concentration and prevailing hydrographical conditions in the area under investigations; 5) to demonstrate in which scale the measured variability in phytoplankton biomass and species composition can be connected with the internal and external nutrient loads made available by the prevailing hydrographical features."@en ; rdfs:label "Influence of hydrographical features to the patchiness of phytoplankton biomass and species composition in the GOF"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2012-10-02"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "ETF6752"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2009-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2006-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The North Sea is one of the most productive ecosystem in the marine environment, but significant input of toxicants from very diverse sources occurs, which may harm this ecosystem. Up till now little attention has been paid to sea-based sources of pollutions (e.g. accidental spills or leakage from platforms). Although most of the public interest has gone to oil spills and the quantity of chemicals transported is substantially less than oil, the potential harm for the marine environment from a given amount of other chemicals spilled can be several orders of magnitude greater. Many of the chemicals transported by sea are highly toxic and/or persistent, can bioaccumulate or cause long-term effects. In case of an accident at sea, it is important that accurate information on environmental partitioning, bioavailability, (eco)toxicity? is immediately available. A number of databases on physical and chemical properties of chemicals have already been developed, but little attention has been paid to specific issues such as the impact on marine life, environmental fate, bioaccumulation in marine food chains. Most often the interpretation is left to the expert user of the database. This project aims at developing a database, amendable for interpretation, providing reliable, easy to interpret and up-to-date information on marine specific issues. The most important parts will be the direct and indirect effects on marine biota and the data quality assessment. Methodology The project can be divided in 4 distinct phases. In the first phase, 400 priority contaminants relevant for Belgium will be listed to be included in the database. Selection will be performed based on criteria such as bioaccumulation potential, toxicity, persistence, frequency of involvement in accidental spills, frequency of transport over sea and volumes transported. This list will be compared with other existing priority lists. In the second phase an extensive literature search will be performed to gather all information necessary for the database. In the third phase quality and relevance of the gathered data will be assessed. The data will be classified based on the availability of the following information: performance of the tests according to internationally accepted procedures, information on the ?control?, information on the test concentration range, availability of information on test characteristics, statistical analysis and analytic performance. Only relevant data that meet high quality standards will be used in the database. Procedures for risk management will also be included. The most important part will be the sub-module on effects for the marine environment. A broad range of organisms and endpoints will be assessed, but if no data for the marine environment are available, results from freshwater studies will be used. Further, biodegradation, metabolism, detoxification and bioaccumulation will be considered. In the fourth phase the relational database with a graphical user interface will be developed.

Because of food chain biomagnification of lipophilic persistent organic pollutants (POPs), the polar bear is one of the species which have the highest levels of these harmful chemicals. Since POPs may have effects on hormone regulation and physiological homeostasis, reproduction and survival, POPs may adversely affect the plasticity of responses that polar bears have to environmental changes. Thus, in combination these two major anthropogenic factors may have a significant effect on Arctic ecosystem functions. The international Polar Year (IPY) project “BearHealth” aims at studying adverse health effects of POPs in polar bears, and the interacting effects of POPs and climate change on polar bears. In the circumpolar international project, several biomarker endpoints, such as immune, hormonal, vitamin, bone, and histological variables will be examined in relation to exposure to POPs and other emerging novel environmental pollutants. Analyses of chemicals and biomarkers will be conducted on archived material from biobanks, and on samples which will be sampled during the project period. In the Norwegian part of the project we will focus on health effects of POPs related to thyroid and reproductive hormone homeostasis and on vitamin A, E and D status, and on interactions between biomarkers, environmental pollutants and climate change variables, and on including new samples from polar bears from Svalbard and Barents Sea region.

They are extremely dynamic systems usually characterised by strong physico chemical gradients, enhanced biological activity and intense sedimentation and resuspension. Furthermore, estuaries are subject to intense anthropogenic disturbance reflected in elevated loadings of detrital organic matter, nutrients and toxic trace elements. All these features increase the potential for biogenic gas production within estuaries. In spite of their potential importance, very little is known about estuaries and their atmospheric coupling. On a global scale, estuaries may act as a significant source of these gases and their importance should be better investigated. Within BIOGEST, we will determine the distribution in surface water of European estuaries of biogases liable to have major environmental consequences: CO2, CH4, CO, non methane hydrocarbons, N2O, NH3, DMS, COS,volatile halogenated organic compounds and biogenic volatile metals. Simultaneously to biogases distribution, we will study related parameters and processes which are linked to biogases distribution: nutrients, organic and inorganic carbon, oxygen, respiration, primary production, atmospheric and sediment exchanges. The investigated estuaries will be the Elbe, the Ems, the Rhine, the Thames, the Scheldt, the Loire, the Gironde, the Douro and the Sado. Among those nine estuaries, the Rhine, the Scheldt and the Gironde have been selected for intensive seasonal studies. Results obtained during this project will serve to develop a biogeochemical model that will be used to i) propose an estimate of the present day biogases emission from European estuaries and, ii) predict future emission versus carbon and nitrogen loadings. This model will provide a decision tool for environmental policy. <li>Objectives: 1. To determine the production and distribution of biogases affecting climate and atmospheric chemistry in surface waters of European estuaries. 2. To evaluate the atmospheric biogases fluxes in European estuaries and their impact on the global budgets. 3. To understand major biological processes which are responsible for biogases distributions. 4.

Paleodrake requests support to recover cores at marine sites in order to portray the decadalmillennial scale climate and ocean variability in the Drake Passage region of Antarctica through the Holocene and the last glacial period. These records will ultimately provide the quantitative reconstructions necessary to first define the magnitude and expression of natural climate variability in the region, and then to clarify the nature of its coupling to changes in Antarctic water mass properties and circumpolar circulation. The key topographic constraint on circumpolar circulation, the Drake Passage, is hypothesized to influence global water mass distributions and overturning rates. Consequently, any assessment of the ocean's relationship to climate ultimately requires constraints from this region. Furthermore, our proposed marine sites provide the geographic complement to Antarctic ice core records necessary for characterizing the spatial expression of natural climate variability and identifying its origin. The results will provide the necessary perspective for contextualizing the significance of recent trends in polar climate observed inthe Southern Annular Mode and upper to deep oceanproperties, relative to the magnitude of their low frequency variability in the past.

They generally dominate the 0.2 to 2.0 m m size class of marine plankton in terms of abundance and biomass. Heterotrophic bacteria are a large and active part of the marine ecosystem and are the main agents making some of the extensive DOC pool available to the rest of the food web via bacterivorous organisms, particularly flagellates. They are also important remineralizers and solubilizers of particulate matter and are, therefore, an important component of investigations of oceanic carbon and nitrogen flow. In oligotrophic waters bacteria often consumes up to half of the primary production via dissolved organic matter and in turn are consumed by grazers. In the Levantine basin primary production is dominated by picophytoplankton populations and considerable amount of the primary production and chl.- a is based on these picophytoplankters (<3m ). The main components of this group are the cyanobacteria (Synechococcus spp.) and the prochlorophytes. Picoplanktonic chroococcoid cyanobacteria Synechococcus spp. are known to be major contributors of the total photosynthetic biomass in the oceans especially in the more oligotrophic regions such as the Mediterranean. In oligotrophic oceans this group contribute up to an estimated 25% of photosynthetic carbon fixation and accounted for 64% of the total photosynthesis in the North Pacific Ocean. This dominance of picophytoplankton leads the expectation that most material and energy transfer is through the microbial loop. It is of particular significance to study in detail this fraction of plankton which is assumed to contribute significantly to overall production in the highly oligotrophic eastern Mediterranean. Within the scope of this project proposal we aim to study the population dynamics (abundance, biomass, growth) as well as their interactions with ambient biological, chemical and physical parameters in time and space in the northern Levantine Basin shelf waters."@en ; rdfs:label "Picoplankton (heterotrophic bacteria and cyanobacteria) content and dynamics in the Levantine basin"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2015-03-08"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:endedAtTime "2004-03-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2002-09-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "Determination of hydraulic boundary conditions for designing and testing of the seadefence for the entire Dutch coast."@en ; rdfs:label "Hydraulic boundaray conditions"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-12-30"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "Tcrand"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2006-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2001-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "Safety"@en ] . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment ""@en ; rdfs:label "Bivalves digestives enzymes evaluation as pollution biomarkers.

This work is particularly relevant for the interpretation of data from the ASAR system on ENVISAT, which has the capability to acquire dual-polarization (HH and VV) synthetic aperture radar imagery. Some scientific / technological developments within ADI'DAS were expected to be relevant for a wide range of investigations and applications besides the automatic detection of radar signatures of oceanic and atmospheric phenomena.This way, the ADI'DAS project was expected to provide significant contributions to a better interpretation of radar images of the ocean and the development of advanced remote sensing / monitoring systems, as well as to a better understanding of interaction processes and fluxes at the air-sea interface and in the marine atmospheric boundary layer. The improved radar imaging model components and data interpretation algorithms developed within ADI'DAS are clearly superior to models and algorithms which were available at the beginning of the project. This will have a significant impact on many activities dealing with the interpretation of radar signatures of oceanic phenomena and of atmospheric phenomena over the ocean.

This call is based on the agreement between the German and the French governments on the improved coordination and linking of respective national research initiatives with Sub- Sahara Africa. In implementing this agreement, the Ministries involved agreed in November 2010 to issue a joint German-French call for proposals in order to specify or complement existing proposals for initiatives with African partners. Consistent use is to be made of the synergies emerging from linking existing competences and experience and the joint use of established networks and research infrastructures in order to provide visible added value compared with previous measures. Special significance is therefore attached to trilateral cooperation between various partners in the field of research and development. As an initial measure, a German-French Workshop took place in Potsdam from 17 to 18 June 2010 entitled 'Germany and France towards a joint approach for the S&T cooperation with developing countries: The example of Sub-Sahara Africa'. The workshop was organized by the two German Ministries BMBF and BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) together with the corresponding French Ministries, MESR and MAEE. It was attended by representatives from the Ministries, from national implementing and intermediary organizations (IB (International Bureau), AIRD, German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), \"Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique\" (INRIA), \"Centre de coopération internationale en recherché agronomique pour le développement\" (CIRAD) among others) as well as from industry and by researchers from Germany, France and Sub-Sahara Africa. In the course of the two days, the participants drafted proposals on possible German-French-African initiatives in four different subject areas: 1) Health; 2) Agriculture/Food Safety; 3) Environment and 4) Applied Mathematics/Computer Science. In the follow-up, initial proposals for possible initiatives were drafted with the help of an online consultation process in which workshop participants were able to take part.

Both ship traffic and activities of the offshore oil industry have caused numerous oil spills in recent years. Some incidents, like the Prestige accident, have resulted in monumental and long-lasting damage. The fish farming and aquaculture industry in certain regions of Europe are exposed to harmful algae blooms (HABs). Blooming situations occur every year, but with varying impact depending on the blooming intensities and variations in ocean circulation patterns. Large HABs, however, has resulted in significant losses for SME fish and shell farmers.Enabling efficient monitoring of the marine environment at a European scale requires a co-ordinated effort of partners with expertise in system, data and service development. The DISMAR project has brought together experts in, among others, web-based GIS, remote sensing, in situ instruments, physical and biological modelling, data fusion, offering them an opportunity for develop and enhance products for a future GMES service.Expected benefits for authorities, industry and SMEs, include easy access to high quality data and services, enabling them make better decisions in crisis situations. This can lead to reduced damage to the environment and lesser economic losses.

The most important goal of the project was obtained within the Activity 1 - development of a permanent framework of the Polish-Russian co-operation concerning the exchange of data on the status of the Vistula Lagoon. The framework was set in the form of an agreement on co-operation and data exchange. The first agreement in the history of IMGW PIB co-operation with the Kaliningrad region, entitled: 'Agreement on the exchange of current measurement data and meteorological, hydrological and oceanographic information' between the relevant services of the IMGW PIB and Kaliningrad Oblast was signed on 29 March 2011 (http://www.baltyk.pogodynka.pl/index/aktualnosci/Zakonczenie_projektu)."@en ; rdfs:label "System for the exchange of information on ecosystem state of Vistula Lagoon in frame of the Polish – Russian transboundary cooperation"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2014-03-04"^^ ; dct:subject , , , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "PL0223"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2011-03-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2008-06-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "LAVÍN, ALICIA " . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The \"Actions Marges\" promotes research activities and collaborations between researchers working on rifted margins within the French community.

The Canadian IPY project calls C3O - Canada's Three Oceans. C3O will use two Canadian Coast Guard icebreakers, whose current mission tracks encircle Canada, to obtain a snapshot of large-scale ocean and ecosystem properties, and thus establish a scientific basis for sustained monitoring of Canada's Sub-Arctic and Arctic seas in the wake of global warming. The WACuM project is a continuation of the collaboration with Canadian oceanographers during the 2004 and 2005 cruises of CCGS Louis S St-Laurent. During the cruises currents were measured by means of LADCP - Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler during standard CTD (Conductivity, Temperature, Depth) casts. Results are compared with calculated baroclinic currents, data from moorings and high resolution ocean-atmosphere-sea ice coupled model. The Arctic Ocean currents pattern, sea ice cower and especially its changes are essential for our global climate change understanding. Dr Waldemar Walczowski participated in two summer 2008 CCGS Louis S St-Laurent cruises : The LSSL-2008-29 cruise has started in 4 July 2008, Halifax, Nova Scotia and finished in 16 July 2008, Cambridge Bay, Victoria Island, Nanavut Territory in Canadian Archipelago. During the cruise at the Labrador Sea, Davis Strait, Baffin Sea and Northwest Passage 13 LADCP stations were made. The LSSL-2008-30 cruise has started in 17 July 2008, Cambridge Bay, finished in 19 August 2009 in Kugluktuk, Nanavut Territory. During the cruise at the Beaufort Sea 65 LADCP measurements were done. In the Arctic Ocean, especially in the deep layers measurements by LADCP are difficult, because of low amount of particles in the water (weak backscattering). Therefore during the 2008 cruises two LADCP devices were used, both RDI 300 kHz WHS300. Because of problems with equipment, configuration has been changed during the 2008-30 cruise and later the measurements were carried by means of one, down looking LADCP. Processing of raw data were done by means of LDEO IX software for Matlab. Profiles were averaged every 20m. Because of the very weak signal and increased error, filtration and smoothing of data were much higher than usually.

Fieldwork will be conducted over three seasons in Greenland and Antarctica, during which the NERC Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, Autosub, upgraded to achieve 1000 km range and 2500 m water depths, will provide unprecedented access to ice covered regions. The candidate areas for research are ice shelves and proximate continental shelf areas: near the 79N Glacier at the east margin of the Greenland Ice Sheet; in the eastern Pacific sector of Antarctica, in the vicinity of Pine Island Glacier, and Wilkins and George VI ice shelves; in the Weddell Sea sector of Antarctica, under and north of the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf. Field investigations are scheduled to run in 2003 and 2004 in the respective summer seasons in each hemisphere. An ice-capable research vessel will be the launch and retrieval platform for the Autosub, and will also act as a platform for additional science measurements in the support of the science programme. Autosub measurements can include conductivity, temperature, transmissivity, fluorescence, photo-synthetically active radiation (PAR), current velocities, turbulence, ice draft, and water depth. Sub-bottom acoustic profiling can reveal structures of glacial origin in the seafloor sediments, and a water sampler can collect samples for geochemical and biological analyses.

The project is led by Dr Sian Henley (University of Edinburgh, School of Geosciences). The research project aims to examine ways in which ongoing climate change and sea ice decline at the West Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) are influencing nutrient budgets and biogeochemical cycling throughout the region. The WAP is an ecologically important region of high primary productivity, where nutrient cycling is known to be crucial to phytoplankton production and its relationship with carbon dioxide dynamics. The study comprises of three components: A time-series study over three austral summer growing seasons in Ryder Bay, WAP, to examine temporal changes in fixed nitrogen budgets and cycling, in relation to inter-annual variability in sea ice, water column structure and productivity. A ship-based transect from the shelf break to Marguerite Bay to examine deep-water behaviour and its impact on the supply of nutrients to high productivity coastal regions. Ship-based sampling across the wider WAP shelf region to examine spatial variability in nutrient dynamics, productivity, sea ice and physical oceanography, and give a broader context to the time-series study. Ship based sampling was completed on-board RRS James Clark Ross cruise JR20141231 (JR307, JR308) comprising of full depth CTDs, water sampling for analysis on-board for macro nutrient concentration and RNA sequencing of organic matter. Times Series, study data were collected as part of the Rothera Time Series (RaTS), a long-term monitoring project conducted by the British Antarctic Survey since 1997.

This change in nutrients inputs was of a magnitude scarcely witness before in agricultural history. One of the aims had been to promote a better understanding runoff into the Gulf of Riga, as well as to assess possible means of reducing this runoff. Mesurements were made at more than 50 monitoring sites in the Rivers Daugava, Lielupe and Salaca, and in the basin of the River Gauja. Transportation with river water is the most important pathway by which nutrient reach the Gulf of Riga, and the River Daugava alone accounted for about 60 per cent of this input. In the Nordic Environmental Research Programme, it was considered essential to concentrate the resources on Baltic research to a geographically limited area and to focus on research projects which study processes of importance for the exchange and balance of eutrophying and toxic substances between land sea. Thus, the Gulf of Riga was chosen for scientific as well as environmental reasons. The objective of the joint five-years Gulf of Riga Project is to study environmental problems in the Gulf and its darinage area, and to determine their impact on the rest of the Baltic Sea in general and the Baltic Proper particular. The first three yaers of research have provides both expected and surprising results on processes, inputs, and environmental effects in the Gulf of Riga. These result will now be further complement, elaborated and eventually fed into planning of water protection measures in the Gulf. An important part of the project has been to build up a common database to serve as a basis for substances budget calculations and model analyses to test various hypotheses concerning which sources and substances have key roles in the eutrophication of the marine ecosistem. Certain environmentally toxic substances and critical processes which control concentrations and distributions patterns in the Gulf of Riga ant the exchange with the Baltic Proper. Another important aspect of the project is to collect data for the planning of water protection measures in the Gulf of Riga. A prerequisite for participation in the project is that the Nordic countries contribute national resources to 50 per cent. Besides the annual funding during the five-year project period 1993-1997 from the Nordic Council of Ministers, special funds have also been allocated from the Nordic Academy of Advanced Study (NorFA) for ''educational aspects, with the aim of strengthening the scientific base of and recruiting of new researchers''.

This model will improve the representation of the mixed layer and the sea ice, the formation of the different water types and their moving from the basins of formation as well as their fluctuations in time. This answers some questions asked by the international scientific community about the role played by the Southern Ocean in the regulation of world climate. This model will be based on two models previously developed at MUMM: a sea ice formation model an a model of three-dimensional oceanic circulation. The ice rheology and the taking into account its dynamics with a proper evolution equation will be introduced in the sea ice model. These improvements will allow the representation of local ice convergences and divergences and the consecutive perturbations on the heat and salt fluxes that enter the water column. A turbulent closure and an appropriate parameterization of the horizontal and vertical diffusivity coefficients will complete the oceanic circulation model. The open sea boundary conditions will be adapted. They will allow to take into account the results of a larger scale model if they are accessible. A dynamic coupling of both models will be achieved. The heat and salt fluxes between ice and water column will be explicitely taken into account. The atmospheric data (air temperature, both horizontal wind speed components, relative humidity, precipitations and atmospheric pressure) and the satellite data (ice concentration, ice type) necessary to the planned experiments will be obtained and suitably treated. In this respect, images of the SAR type which are presently provided by the satellites ERS1, ERS2, RADARSAT and JERS1 and in the future by RADARSAT2 and ENVISAT and which are a powerful tool for ice pack observation, will be used. Passive microwave data will also be used for lower resolution studies. The developed tool will run in operational mode. By a simple extension of procedures already tested and applied between the UK Meteorological Office and MUMM (via RMI), data necessary for the achievement of forecasts on a four-day period will be obtained twice a day.

The first phase of the work was to digitise the information contained within the two typed reports from the 1980s. Phase two was to identify and count species (absolute counts or estimations) present in the collection jars. A publication list was also produced which summarised papers resulting from the original analysis of the physical samples.

To investigate and describe the biodiversity of maerl systems in the NE Atlantic and mediterranean Sea. 2. To investigate the structural factors causing differences in biodiversity between sites. This will involve detailed assessment of site edaphic factors, in particular the structural complexity of the habitat. 3. To investigate the interactions of the key habitat-structuring organisms. 4. To investigate the dynamics of community composition over time, especially the impact of natural disturbances. 5. To identify anthropogenic threats to, and assess the resilience of, maerl grounds. The collaboration envisaged will provide a comprehensive biogeographical coverage of sites from Scotland to Galicia in the Atlantic to Alicante and Malta in the Mediterranean, covering a substantial range of conditions under which maerl systems occur in European seas. At the completion of the programme a detailed inventory of regional biodiversity on maerl beds will be constructible. No such inventory exists at present. It is the intention to describe the range of habitat conditions at each study site. Standard protocols would be applied to definition of site edaphic feature temperature, salinity, water transparency, current velocity, maerl granulometry and silt content and porosity, megarippling, assessment of percentage live maerl, sediment pH, organic content and redox potential. Different workers have, in the past, studied the biology of maerl system using different sampling methodologies, e.g. remote sampling using grabs and corers and direct SCUBA TV methods. Direct methods of observation offer the best chance of investigating small-scale patchiness of undisturbed systems. Key species and structural features of the maerl community will be identified for detailed study at each locality. A diversity of chosen special topics between areas will achieve a much greater in-depth understanding of the variety of physical/chemical/biological mechanisms affecting regional biodiversity. There will be considerable differences in species composition between the maerl communities in places as far apart as Millport and Malta. Flexibility will be retained between partners to exploit the circumstances of their own grounds to the full, while maintaining comparability in other studies. Thus, comparative background investigations of population density, biomass, diversity will be deliberately harmonized between teams to provide a university comparative framework of data. It is vital that work proceeds at all seasons of the year, to take into account cycles of reproduction, colonization and migration, and allow analyses of the impact of natural stress factors, e.g. storms.

The necessity to improve the existing systems resides in the failure of such systems to prevent disaster, as was seen e.g. in the case of the Exxon Valdez (1989) and Prestige (2002) tanker incidents. This proposal reduces the uncertainties in forecasting the oil slick evolution combining advanced oil spill monitoring with a state of the art marine currents forecasting system, already operational at the Mediterranean basin scales. Moreover, it is known that single large disasters are not the major source of marine pollution from petroleum products: a continuous release of oil comes from drilling platforms at sea, land sources and illegal practices at sea.

This might affect microbial biodiversity and lead to metal bioaccumulation in higher trophic levels. To date, microbial communities in marine sediments of the Belgian Continental Plate (BCP) remain poorly studied, particularly in heavy metal contaminated zones. The MICROMET project fits within two priority research domains of the Science for a Sustainable Development programme (Biodiversity and Marine Ecosystems) and is directly connected with the aims of the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC). Project description Objectives The aim of the MICROMET project is to understand the link between microbial activity and heavy metal fluxes in marine sediments. To this end, the whole microbial communities will be studied in the BCP area using an interdisciplinary approach in which geochemical and microbiological methods will be closely integrated. The research is subdivided in three Work Packages (WP 1-3). The aim of WP 1 is to determine the impact of metallic contaminants on the microbial diversity in sediments. The aim of WP 2 is to assess the importance of microorganisms in the leaching of metal contaminants from the sediments into the water column. The aim of WP 3 will be to run numerical models with the data collected during the project. This will allow predictions and lead to a better understanding of the benthic ecosystems. Methodology WP 1. About 10 sampling stations on the BCP will be examined during the first year. Sediments will be sampled before and after the major phytoplankton blooms. Microbial diversity will be determined using the DGGE approach. Pure cultures of microorganisms will be characterized, microbial biomass and geochemical properties of the sediment will be determined. Pore-water heavy metal concentrations will be determined using the Diffusive Equilibrium Technique (DET) and the Diffusive Gradient Technique (DGT). In the second year, sediments of 4 selected stations will be sampled monthly to take different organic matter sedimentation patterns into account. In addition to DGGE, the complete SSU rRNA will be sequenced in order to have a better understanding of the microbial diversity and physiologies. WP 2. Vertical profiles of sediment cores from the 4 selected stations will be examined in more detail using the FISH and real-time PCR approaches, microbial productivity measurements, and detailed geochemical analyses. The central part of WP 2 will consist of laboratory simulations in which sediment cores will be incubated under various environmental conditions. WP 3. Numerical models will be run and validated with the data generated in this study. This will allow to predict the occurence of benthic metal fluxes taking various factors into account. Interaction between the different partners Two microbiologist teams (ULB & UGent) and two geochemist teams (VUB & USTL) will work on the same sediment cores during the whole project. As a consequence, the different partners will closely interact and the microbiological data will be easily correlated with the geochemical data. Expected results The MICROMET project aims at gathering new data on environmental variables and microbiological processes not previously investigated in the BCP area. Sediment microbiological variables will include indices of biodiversity, SSU rRNA sequences and biomasses. Enzymatic activities and sulfate reduction rates will also be determined. These data are totally missing on the BCP. Sediment geochemical variables will include oxygen, pH, S(-II), and heavy metal profiles (micro-electrodes). High-resolution heavy metal profiles will be obtained by the DET and DGT approaches. Other variables (organic C & N, etc.) will also be determined."@en ; rdfs:label "Microbial diversity and metal fluxes in contaminated North Sea sediments (MICROMET)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-12-18"^^ ; dct:subject , , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "MICROMET"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2009-01-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2006-12-15"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , , ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "Science for a Sustainable Development (SSD)"@en ] . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The overall goal of BONUS OPTIMUS is to provide robust evidence-based documentation (ecological, social, and economic) on optimized use of farmed mussel as a mitigation tool for eutrophication that in turn can be a sustainable protein-rich feedstuff for fish.

Mound building seems to be a fundamental but still enigmatic strategy of Life, developed since Precambrian times onwards. Various arguments suggest that microorganisms are playing a major role in reef development and biodiversity. Mounds may find their origin at the confluence of fluxes from external (oceanic) and internal origin (geofluids). Long cores taken in 2004 showed that the 'Pen Duick' mounds off Morocco, in which microbial action was demonstrated by an strong emission of hydrogen sulfide, may be considered as giant biogeochemical reactors. MiCROSYSTEMS proposes to turn the Pen Duick mounds into a natural laboratory through the following actions and experiments: a. - Biotope exploration and characterization of biodiversity through geophysical and video imaging, targeted microbiological profiling, evaluation of present and past oceanic conditions, b. - Microbial diversity census and evaluation of the functional link microbes-metazoans through metazoan species analysis, biogeochemical and molecular fingerprinting, laboratory culturing, fauna-microbe interactions analysis, evaluation of microbially mediated processes of carbonate precipitation, c. - Assessment of the impact of biodiversity changes through the development of a reactor technology to simulate and assess the functionality of the micro-ecological niches and the impact of environmental changes. The MiCROSYSTEMS project closely dovetails with European projects on deep-water coral ecosystem conservation and with IODP Expedition 307.

The high cost and duration of DNA barcoding can be reduced by using the technique of high-resolution melting analysis (HRM) which can produce results of similar sensitivity and accuracy. For a single organism DNA barcoding and HRM analysis do not differ regarding time spent or cost of analysis however in studies where hundreds of organisms are analysed as DNA groups, the total costs can be reduced 5-10 fold by using HRM. The proposed project will create a unique database of HRM profiles specific to the Turkish Black Sea zooplankton species, eliminating dependence on array analysis in HRM analyses. In this context, DNA sequences of the COI gene will be extracted from zooplankton samples of the Black Sea coastal waters and the resulting HRM profiles will be drawn, thus a database belonging to Black Sea HRM profiles will be compiled and new software developed for the comparison of pre-determined profiles. In future monitoring studies concerning changes in the zooplankton biodiversity of the Black Sea, all species, including new species if any, could be independently determined in the samples in less than 2 hours. The simplicity and easy application of the technique enables its use on both research stations and ships, thus rendering it likely to become a routinely employed analysis method. The outcomes of this project could be used both in routine biodiversity investigations and in ecosystem management in Turkish waters where the impacts of invasive species are strong. Since there is no other economically viable method determining almost all of the species present in a zooplankton sample in as little as 2 hours, the method developed will likely have a universally pioneering role to be used in both natural and engineering sciences studying biodiversity."@en ; rdfs:label "Fast method of identification of Black Sea zooplankton"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2017-08-01"^^ ; dct:subject , ; geolink:hasAcronym "ZOOGENETIK"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2016-08-08"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2013-08-08"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "On the base of structural geology and taking into account neotectonic principles detailed overview of the research is given with corresponding conclusions."@en ; rdfs:label "Existing conformities of engineering geology conditions of the Black Sea"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-01-04"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:endedAtTime "1999-12-15"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1999-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The Goal of project is investigate the Nature of continental run-off from the Siberian rivers and its behaviour in the adjacent Arctic Basin Main Objectives of project are - to characterize the supply of the rivers Ob and Yenisey with respect to their dissolved and suspension load, to identify processes modifying the river supply in the estuaries and the inner shelf sea, and finally to analyse the dispersal and deposition of the river supply in the Kara Sea; - to study the response of the planktic and benthic biota on variations in the river supply along the salinity gradient from the estuaries to the inner shelf; - to study the geochemistry of dissolved and particulate organic matter and hydrocarbon gases in the water column and the sediments; - to study the dispersal and distribution pattern of contaminants; - to reconstruct temporal and spatial changes in the late Weichselian and Holocene paleoenvironment along transects from the estuaries of the rivers Ob and Yenisey towards the open Kara Sea; and - to calculate (Holocene) total sediment and organic carbon budgets for the Ob and Yenisey estuaries and the inner Kara Sea.

Particularly, semi-enclosed intra continental coastal seas with the reduced water renewal, such as the Baltic Sea, are most vulnerable to the human component. Due to the uncertainties in differentiating the impact of climate variability from anthropogenic disturbances the future reaction of coastal ecosystems to increased stress and to counter-measures is not predictable at present. The Baltic Sea System Study (BASYS) aims at reducing these uncertainties in a multi-disciplinary project with 8 scientific subprojects: Pelagic processes, Lateral transport, Nearshore processes, Atmospheric load, Climate impact, Environmental record in the sediments, Systems analysis and modelling and Mesoscale physics. The 3 major objectives of the project are: - to improve the quantification of past and present fluxes - to further the understanding of the susceptibility of the Baltic Sea toexternal forcing - to achieve a sound scientific basis for the understanding of future changes. The work of BASYS encompasses retrospective aspects by studying the sedimentary record, long-term time series and hindcasting models as well process oriented studies on important system components like vertical and lateral fluxes, food web structure and their regulation by mesoscale physical phenomena. The 4 major working tasks are: - assessment of time scales of significant changes and limits of complexityfor prediction - translation of lateral and vertical gradients into mass balances - estimation of the sediment recording capacity in relation to lateral transporand pelagic-benthic coupling - differentiation between natural and anthropogenic external forcing byunderstanding the preindustrial variability of the ecosystem. The various subsystems of the Baltic Sea are highly variable in their biogeochemical behaviour. The field work cover representative site and results are upscaled to basin and larger scales by various model approaches. The combination between process oriented work, assembling of historical data, modelling and the geological record will allow for robust testing for predictive capability and for development of generic strategies in coastal ecosystem research."@en ; rdfs:label "Baltic Sea System Study"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-02-25"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "BASYS"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "1999-10-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1996-08-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "MAST 3"@en ] . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Dr Ch.

The approach is to implement and use an efficient 3D atmosphere-vegetation-sea-ice-ocean model coupled with a model of the oceanic carbon cycle and improved thermo-mechanical models of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. We will study climate and sea-level changes for the periods 1750-2000, 2000-2100, and 2000-3000. A series of sensitivity experiments will assess the importance of including interactive ice-sheet, land-vegetation, and carbon-cycle representations in the model. Investigating the long-term response of climate and sea level to human activities requires the operation of global three-dimensional models, which encompass all relevant components of the climate system (i.e., the atmosphere, the oceans, the ice masses, the upper Earth's mantle, and the living world). But most importantly, these models must be computationally fast enough so that integration of longer duration and a larger number of sensitivity experiments can be performed than is usually the case with climate general circulation models. To achieve this requires some simplifications in the most CPU-time demanding model component, which is usually the atmospheric component. Models of this type do not yet exist but are being developed in several European and American research laboratories. Here we propose to build such a model (LOVECLIM) by coupling an efficient 3D atmosphere-vegetation-sea-ice-ocean model with a model of the oceanic carbon cycle and with thermo-mechanical models of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.

This inter-sectorial and multinational cooperation network will comprise a critical mass of both experienced and early-career researchers from Europe and beyond. The goal will be achieved through capacity building, researchers’ mobility, skills development, knowledge exchange and scientific networking. The study of the unique salt giant is inherently cross-disciplinary, embracing geology, geophysics, geochemistry, microbiology, and paleoclimatology. It is an opportunity for the scientific community to share objectives, data, expertise and tools with industry since there is considerable interest in oil and gas exploration, and consequent hazards, targeting the Mediterranean’s deep salt deposits. The MEDSALT Action proposal has been conceived as a joint initiative coordinating scientific targets from existing research efforts including the European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD), the Japanese and US branches of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), the EU- FP7 ITN MEDGATE, TOPO-EUROPE, and other national and international research programmes focussing on the Mediterranean salt giant. Credits Marcello Natalicchio The expected scientific impact of this COST Action will go beyond the mere understanding of the Mediterranean Salinity Crisis: - this COST Action will provide an opportunity to develop further our knowledge of salt rock formation, deformation and its associated hydrocarbon systems. The project will enable the sharing of knowledge, technology and expertise among the various research groups/communities and with the industry, now rapidly moving towards deep, sub-salt exploration in the Mediterranean Basin; - sampling and analysing samples of the salt giant will allow the investigation of the potential of this geological environment to promote deep-dwelling communities of microbes and viruses. This first order research has a potential to yield results relevant to industrial applications like understanding the microbial processes that lead to the formation of sour gas (H2S), a major hazard for the drilling industry; - the study of salt deformation will contribute to the understanding of submarine geohazards in the Mediterranean region (earthquakes, submarine landslides, tsunamis, gas emissions)."@en ; rdfs:label "MEDSALT - Uncovering the Mediterranean Salt Giant"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2018-02-28"^^ ; dct:subject ; geolink:hasAcronym "COST_MEDSALT"@en ; prov:startedAtTime "2016-03-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "COST / Horizon2020"@en ] . org:hasMember . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Jørgen Schou Christiansen" . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The project is mainly deal with riverine input and coastal interactions.

In that way the ocean uptake delays the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere, and therefore the marine CO2-uptake might have a significant influence on the future climatic changes induced by greenhouse gases. The carbon uptake at the air-sea interface, and the subsequent cycling in the watercolumn is a complex process involving physical, chemical and biological interactions. During the world-around Galathea expedition a combined effort from several research teams from different institutions will contribute to our understanding of processes regulating the carbon uptake. Measurements will be made continuously onboard the ship over the entire cruise track. In this manner, it will be possible to develop a global estimate of the role of different ocean regions in ocean-atmosphere carbon exchange. Such studies are crucial in order to improve modelling activities aimed at predicting future atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and in order to discern the role of the oceans in mediating global climate change.

Recently, it has been found that the deep water formation in the GIN Sea is more variable than assumed hitherto. Despite this uncertainty, it became clear over the last 2 decades that the conveyor belt system and the NADW are essential elements influencing the global climate and, linked to that, the carbon cycling. While the turnover of the water masses in the oceanic conveyor belt system is around 1500 years, the turnover of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the deep waters is around 6000 years. Thus, on average, the deep water DOC is cycled 4 times within the conveyor belt system before it is completely remineralized. With improved methodology, it is now possible to determine basin-scale variations in the concentrations of deep water DOC. As a consequence of conveyor belt circulation of deep water masses, the deep water DOC concentration decreases from around 45 µM in the NADW to 37 µM in the deep waters of the Pacific, i.e., a decline of 8 µM C or by about 20% of the original DOC concentration. Recently, the existing knowledge on the degradation of deep water DOM within the conveyor belt system has been summarized. It has been concluded that the degradation of the deep water DOC must take place in a non-continuous way involving interactions between abiotic transformation of DOC (chemical, photochemical) and microbial degradation and remineralization. Despite some recent advances in our understanding of global circulation processes and its potential role for the earth?s climate, our knowledge on deep water transformation of DOC and on the bacterioplankton involved is rather poor. Due to this critical lack of a mechanistic understanding of the DOC transformation in the deep sea (which comprises the largest single system in the ocean [? 80% in terms of volume]), it is impossible to make any educated predictions on the future development of the deep sea as a potential buffer reservoir in the biogeochemical flux of elements in a changing climate. Up to now, this lack of information on deep sea processes could be explained by the lack of proper and sensitive techniques to determine the rather low concentrations of specific organic compounds of the deep sea DOC pool and to determine bacterioplankton activity and composition. However, significant advancements have been made in chemical oceanography and microbial and molecular ecology over the past few years. These advancements allow us now to determine the temporal and spatial variability of the deep sea DOM pool and its major components and to link the characterization of the deep water DOM pool to the composition and activity of the deep water bacterial community, thus to link the biogeochemical aspects with a molecular characterization of the bacterioplankton."@en ; rdfs:label "TRANSAT (NIOZ-project)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2016-02-15"^^ ; dct:subject ; geolink:hasAcronym "NIOZ-TRANSAT"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2005-01-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2002-01-01"^^ . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "To develop rapid, sensitive, cost effective, and simple scientific biomarkers for risk assessments of hazardous substances and mixtures in the marine environment.

EMMA aims at creating a connection between environmental research, local authorities and socio-economic operators. It intends turn scientific knowledge into operational strategies able to prevent and reduce the causes of anoxic events. To this purpose, the work programme of the project combines scientific research with strategic planning and an awareness raising campaign targeted to local, regional and inter-regional administrations, as well as towards citizens.

In particular the project is aimed at: * Transferring scientific and technological knowledge to local administrations and to socio-economic operators with the objective of setting specific measures and interventions able to counteract the causes of deterioration of the marine ecosystem * Raise awareness on the need to use integrated environmental management systems, also in those local authorities which are not directly involved in the project * Exchange experiences and promote the use of the model in other Italian and European areas Actions * Design, implementation and test of a monitoring system able to record the key parameters of the main processes leading to potential anoxia/hypoxia conditions in the bottom waters and sediments * Design, implementation and test of a forecasting model able to anticipate the space-temporal evolution and the size of anoxic phenomena in the 72 hours after the emergence of the first anomalous signs. The system will assist institutions and socio-economic operators in the management of situations of environmental risk and will allow decision makers to define appropriate intervention strategies in order to mitigate the impacts of these events. * Transfer of the scientific and technical knowledge to those operators that, at the end of the project, will be responsible of the management of the monitoring system, to local public authorities and to other local operators involved in territorial management. * Dissemination of project results at national and European level, with the goal of favouring the adoption of the model by other regions in the Adriatic Sea as well as other European regions affected by similar environmental problems. * Awareness raising campaign on the need to adopt strategies of integrated management of the coastal areas at local, regional and inter-regional level.

Using new analytical approaches and methodologies, the relationship between algal growth and the biological availability of trace metals and carbon dioxide will be unravelled. Objective is to elucidate the relationship between algal gLowth rate and the availability of trace metals and carbon dioxide in seawater, including synergistic effects relating to trace metal and inorganic carbon co-limitation. The analysis of trace metal and CO2 biological availability will involve the determination of the chemical forms of iron (Fe), zinc (Zn), and cobalt (Co), their exchange kinetics and diffusive transport rates, as well as an assessment of the significance and functioning of carbon-concerltrating mechanisms in marine phytoplankton communities. These questions will be addressed by combining newly developed electrochemical methods with physiological and molecular diagnostics capable to assess the nutritional status of phytoplankton. Specific objectives are as follows: a) to determine the biological availability of trace metals (Fe, Zn, Co) throug measurements of speciation, complexation and dissociation/association kinetics, with the purpose of developing a model on trace metal mass transport; b) to develop, calibrate, and apply molecular and physiological diagnostics with which to characterise the nutritional status of model phytoplankton species and to detect trace metal and CO2 limitation; c) to investigate synergistic effects of trace metal and carbon dioxide limitation and physiological responses to trace metal substitution. 1) NIOZ 2)AWI 3)U.Liverpool 4)MBA 5)CFR The Netherlands Germany United Kingdom United Kingdom France"@en ; rdfs:label "Marine Ecosystems Regulations (Dutch participation)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2016-02-24"^^ ; dct:subject ; geolink:hasAcronym "MERLIM - NL"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "1998-03-27"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1998-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "European Commission's Marine Science and Technology Programme"@en ] . org:hasMember . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "Full Project Title: SCALQUAL - Improving the quality of cultivated scallops to ensure a viable aquaculture production.

There are about 20 species of commerically exploited or cultivated species world wide, and of these the greta scallop is one of the most sought after. The EU market for scallops is strongly dependent on import from overseas areas. Currently most of the European scallop production is dredged or diver harvested, but aquaculture production is increasing. a major problem by European scallop growers is the poor survival associated with handling and transfer operations while in culture, which is probably stress related.

Eutrophication in Belgian coastal waters results from climate-driven transboundary (SW-Atlantic waters, Rhine) and local (Ijzer, Scheldt) inputs of land-based unbalanced nutrients (excess of N over Si and/or P) and manifests as high-biomass algal blooms (mainly the Haptophycea Phaeocystis) that impact the ecosystem function and services. An increased understanding of the links between changing nutrient loads and ecosystem response is needed to guide formulation of EU regulations for the reduction of nutrient inputs to the North Sea and the optimisation of goods and services such as offshore mussel farming.AMORE III address the dual control of changing human activity and climate on eutrophication in the Belgian coastal zone (EEZ.be) and the feedback effect on goods (newly-deployed offshore mussel farming) and services (atmospheric CO2 absorption). As a scientific contribution towards the sustainable use of EEZ.be, AMORE III aims to provide new ecological knowledge, develop new technology and upgrade the existing 3D-MIRO&CO ecological model to: - Assess the dual role of changing hydro-climate and nutrient river loads in determining the geographical spreading and the magnitude of Phaeocystis blooms in EEZ.be as well as the role of the coastal area as buffer of increased atmospheric CO2; predict how these features might change in the near future (2015) based on realistic scenarios of changing climate and river nutrient loads; - Assess the impact of Phaeocystis colony spreading on offshore mussel farming and make recommendations for an optimized management; - Define ecological quality criteria for measuring ecosystem changes and the effectiveness of management and policy applications.Recognizing the multiplicity of processes, changes and forces behind the dynamic of coastal ecosystems, the AMORE research methodology involves and combines field observation, laboratory-controlled experiments, and mathematical modelling in an iterative way. The coupled hydrodynamical ecological model 3D-MIRO&CO plays a central role as integrator of new knowledge gained from experimental studies and as a tool for eutrophication assessment and prediction as well as decision support.

Wave Energy Convertors are at an early stage of development. First generation devices have been deployed at the shoreline and normally consist of Oscillating Water Column Systems. In order for these systems to progress towards full commercial realisation they must develop into units suited to mass production. This project follows the successful FP6 funding round in which several fixed Oscillating Water Column Wave Energy Convertors (OWC WECs) were funded at demonstration level. These systems are now evolving from fixed to floating devices in deeper water, further offshore. This brings new challenges which this project aims to address. The project will concentrate on the development of new concepts and components for power-take-off, control, moorings, risers, data acquisition and instrumentation based on floating OWC systems. However, the components and concepts developed will have relevance to other floating device types. This project will run for a 3 year period, having commenced in April 2008. The impacts of the project will be focused on reducing technical and non-technical risk in the marine environment as well as reducing the cost per kWh of generated energy. The new components and concepts will be tested on a floating OWC test platform at sea and these real, validated and verified results will be integrated into a holistic system model. This model will provide a Toolbox for wave to wire simulations of complete WEC systems. The Marine Institute Galway Bay Test site is location for the field test of the project.

The whole Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Kaliningrad and St.Petersburg regions (Russia) and part of Poland lies within the Baltic Sea catchment's area. Pollution and their transformation products reaching the water bodies within Baltic States will end up in the Baltic Sea. In these states exist eight hot spots concerning agricultural runoff that are listed in the Joint Comprehensive Environmental Action Programme. The BAAP is an environmental and agricultural co-operation programme designed to improve the water quality of the Baltic Sea and of local surface and groundwater bodies by reducing the leakage of nutrients (run-off) from agriculture and enhance a sustainable agricultural development in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Northwest Russia (Kaliningrad and St.Petersburg regions). Baltic Environmental Agricultural Run-Off Programe (BEAROP) Nitrogen's role as one of the most important elements in aquatic ecosystems is undisputed. It occurs in several forms, and participates in a large number of processes, primarily biological, including the exchange of gas with the atmosphere. The annual loading of nitrogen on the Sound, the Belt Sea, the Kategat and Skagerrak from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Germany is currently about 260,000 tons. Approximately 50% of this nitrogen derives from agriculture and 30% from the atmosphere. The loading on the Baltic Proper is even higher -1,350,000 tons per year The contribution from agricultural activities to this amount is estimated at between 40 and 50%. One of the most harmful effects of human activities on surface waters is eutrophication resulting from excess nitrogen inputs into these systems. Agriculture comprises the largest proportion of non-point source nitrogen and phosphorus losses. The project focuses on monitoring, demonstration, education and information activities.

While this proposal will benefit from the simultaneous characterisation of other ecosystem components by PRIMaRE scientists, we will complement current efforts by obtaining research quality data for the oceanographic characteristics of the site. It is essential to obtain this information prior to deployment of infrastructure if we are to understand the impact of arrays of wave devices together with the Wave Hub infrastructure. This opportunity has already been lost at other wave energy device testing sites (such as at EMEC, Orkney), because devices, together with infrastructure such as moorings and cabling have already been installed. We will deploy multidisciplanry field teams in time to obtain high quality, spatially resolved field data ahead of the Wave Hub construction. For this, we have therefore suggested a modest budget to ensure that this information is collected from August 2010 to August 2011. Our approach will be to obtain: (i) Detailed oceanographic study at the Wave Hub site and surrounds - covering the whole range of physical, chemical and biological parameters before the deployment of Wave Hub infrastructure and wave energy devices. (ii) Ensure data acquisition in time and space to allow development of physical and ecosystem models at scales relevant to wave arrays. Ultimately models will allow us to make predictive assessments of the extent, timescales and intensity of ecosystem impacts and perturbation resulting from implementation of wave energy arrays. (iii) Engagement of environmental economists to ensure these same data can be used to develop economic valuation estimates of critical life supporting ecosystem services at scales appropriate to arrays of wave devices for comparison with other uses of marine space. This proposal is also driven by the need to expand the science capability and resources over the next five years to address the questions which have arisen directly in respect of marine renewable energy development and sustainable use of marine resources.

This region has never been sampled in this extent before. The western Pacific transect is of interest not only because it represent an undersampled region. First, it allows the comparison across a strong trophic gradient, which is decoupled from temperature. Second, it provides the opportunity to investigate diversity within the unique water mass of the Western Pacific Warm Pool and third, it allows us to constrain the occurrence of genetic types in the upstream region of the Indonesian Throughflow, which is a critical pathway for gene flow between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Benefiting from a newly established DNA extraction method, we are now able to combine during one cruise classical plankton analysis in stratified samples with the possibility to obtain DNA from all preserved specimens. This approach will be applied using the standard 9-depth-level sampling scheme of the upper 700 m of the water column throughout the southern and northern subtropical waters and the equatorial circulation system of the western Pacific. We specifically aim to determine whether the gradients of diversity in morphological species as observed across this region in surface sediments (Rutherford et al., 1999) is mirrored at the genetic level of species identification. We also aim to constrain the vertical habitat of key morphological species, which are frequently used for paleoceanographic reconstructions, as well as to determine the degree to which the population density and structure at morphological and genetic level can be predicted by water mass properties.

The project examined recruit variability dictated by Arctic environment dynamics. Project aimed to reveal fundamental unknowns in the Arctic such as underlying structure to shallow seabed communities and diversity influences on these. Besides focus on development of new communities of Arctic marine ecosystems, DYNARC project investigated the species composition and physical forcing on ecosystem structure. In addition, it combined topics such as systematics, taxonomy, ecology, biodiversity and ecological modelling into a combined study on colonization and community development on sessile marine benthic organism groups. Comparative aspects of the project included study sites ranging from the coast of Northern Norway to Svalbard that yielded vital information and knowledge about the structure and dynamics of Arctic ecosystems.

The EU currently faces potentially conflicting objectives of maintaining sustainable fisheries in European waters with all the economic benefits afforded to the community through the fishing industry, whilst at the same time maintaining biodiversity and avoiding negative effects on the environment. To date economic arguments controlling fishing efforts have focused on costs of fishing per unit catch and maintenance of sustainable fish stocks for the future. The current objectives of the EU are to control the environmental impact of fishing and to strike a balance between economic needs and protection of the environment. Marine ecosystem functions refer variously to their habitat, biological or system properties or processes. Marine ecosystem 'goods' (such as fisheries) and 'services' (such as waste assimilation), represent the benefits human populations derive, directly or indirectly, from the marine ecosystem functions. With the emerging science of environmental economics it should now be possible to put an economic valuation or costing on marine ecosystem resources or goods and services and indicate how this value is affected by fishing. This would provide fisheries and coastal zone managers with an effective tool to determine their policies. This project aims to explore the possibilities of developing such an approach to environmental and fisheries management."@en ; rdfs:label "Impact of Demersal Fishing on Marine Ecosystem"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-08-10"^^ ; dct:subject , ; geolink:hasAcronym "COST IMPACT"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2004-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2001-12-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "EU 5th Framework Project"@en ] . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The EU's European Strategy for Integrated Coastal Zone Management aims to promote a collaborative approach to planning and management of the coastal zone with a philosophy of governance by partnership with civil society.

Economic mechanisms, institutional and legislative systems, industrial and commercial practices at European and global scales should be taken into account. Marine ecosystems posses great intrinsic value as reserves of biological diversity and are vital providers of goods and services to humanity. However, they are often disregarded during economic and social development. Europe's four sea areas; the Baltic, NE Atlantic, Mediterranean and Black Sea have each paid a heavy price for unsustainable development within their catchments and sea areas. Their ecosystems have suffered to differing degrees from eutrophication, chemical pollution, unsustainable fisheries and physical destruction of habitats. This damage is closely connected with human lifestyles throughout the continent. The future integrity of marine systems depends on our approach to European development in the coming decades. Bringing marine ecosystems into policies for sustainable development requires better information on the causal connections between human pressures and the changing state of the systems. This is particularly important at a time when the European Community is expanding, re-examining its agricultural and chemical policies, implementing a new fisheries policy and exploring new ways to protect marine systems. ELME will enhance understanding of causality, forecast the impacts of divergent development scenarios and inform evolving Community policies. Current interdisciplinary knowledge linking lifestyles with their marine environmental consequences is widely dispersed. ELME brings together a necessarily large consortium, covering all relevant disciplines and regions. It integrates existing knowledge of environmental state changes, sectoral pressures and social and economic drivers using a common conceptual model. It will select contextual indicators for each causal level and model the relationships between them. These models will be applied to plausible development scenarios with particular focus on the accession process, to explore possible consequences for the stated four marine ecosystems.

Consequently, a first proposal of possible optimal allocations of all relevant use functions in the Belgian part of the North Sea (BPNS) will be formulated. This will happen within the framework of sustainable thinking. Methodology GAUFRE wants to go beyond the mere result of producing a plan for an optimal allocation of use functions. It is obvious that the current call of the project within the limited span of time cannot contribute to a fully mature spatial structure plan. The project is therefore also putting emphasis on the methodological process towards a plan rather than the final product alone. This methodological process stresses interdisciplinarity, multifunctionality and public participation: (1) Interdisciplinarity: To obtain objective information underlying the knowledge module, the impact maps and the spatial structure plan, a continuous flow among natural scientists, social scientists, decision makers, stakeholders and the general public is needed. Integration of - sometimes opposite and even conflicting - interests should go beyond the specific sectors. The fine tuning of both environmental as well as socio-economic goals is therefore difficult but mandatory. The GAUFRE project contributes towards interdisciplinarity both by its partnership and user committee, as well by its use of existing databases and information gathered from previous projects. (2) Multifunctionality: Because of its multifunctionality, layered and modular structure, it was decided to use a Geographical Information System (GIS) as the underlying methodological platform. This platform is not only an adequate tool for generating maps, but it is also able to allow spatial analysis of the data and integrate multi-criteria decision support systems. This could be a way to allow the evaluation and balancing of spatial use and use intensity by different use functions for the BPNS. It has already been used in land based and sector restricted planning studies. (3) Public participation: The need for a continuous flow of information among natural and social scientists, economists, decision makers, stakeholders and specifically the public, and the accessibility of the outcome towards its users, asks for a thorough public participation. The use of two workshops and the continuous interaction with an extensive user committee tries to bridge this gap during the process. Extensive public interaction and participation however can only start after a preliminary proposal for a spatial structure plan has come to shape. Expected results and/or products Each of the indicated objectives will produce an output. The following three steps with their end results can therefore be expected: (1) the making of an accessible and scientific knowledge module (2) the making of maps on which effects of user functions are shown (3) a first proposal towards an optimal spatial allocation These different steps will without doubt coincide with a continuous discussion, a conceptual analysis, the organisation of a workshop and the publication of scientifically reviewed papers."@en ; rdfs:label "Towards a spatial structure plan for sustainable management of the sea"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-06-01"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; geolink:hasAcronym "GAUFRE UGent-MARINST"@en ; prov:endedAtTime "2004-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2003-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith , , ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "SPSD 2 NS, Global change, ecosystems and biodiversity - North Sea Contracts"@en ] . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Boetius, Antje" ; foaf:title "Prof." . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "Context Marine mammals of the North Eastern Atlantic are all listed among vulnerable, declined, or threatened species by international directives. Among these species, the harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) and the harbour seal (Phoca vitulina) are specially concerned due to their coastal distribution, in direct contact with shipping, fishing, and noise pollution and to its overall presence in reasonable number along the European coasts. Whereas some aspects such as the xenobiotic pollution are already largely studied, human impact is however hard to establish, mainly due to a blatant lack of information on marine mammals population ecology, density, distribution and diversity. Project description Objectives This project aims to assess the viability of the harbour porpoise and harbour seal populations in the North Sea (focusing mainly on its southern Bay) through 1. the characterisation of their genetic structure and diversity 2. a better understanding of their feeding ecology 3. the assessment of their susceptibility of being trapped accidentally in fishing nets Methodology Following approaches will be considered to reach the objectives: 1. The genetic structure of these populations will be investigated using four complementary genetic markers: the D-loop region of the mtDNA, the microsatellite markers of the Y and of the autosomous chromosomes, and the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). 2. The determination of stable carbon and nitrogen signatures (d3C and d15N) in the muscles and blood of harbour porpoises and harbour seals will provide some further insights on their respective diets. 3. The susceptibility to incidental capture will be investigated by both post-mortem investigations and systematic inventory of carcasses in fishing nets. Interactions between the different partners and expected results These integrated results combined with those acquired previously on chemical pollution will provide a precise assessment of the harbour porpoise and harbour seal population status and their long-term viability facing various aspects of anthropogenic stress.

The causes of this loss and its consequences for the functioning of ecosystems are the current focus of intense research activity. In particular, there is debate over the importance of species diversity per se and so-called functional diversity. Marine communities are potentially valuable in resolving this debate, yet the role of biodiversity in marine ecosystems is poorly understood. Rocky shores are highly productive and are a source of detrital material for coastal food webs. Altering the functioning of rocky shore ecosystems may therefore have far-reaching effects. They are also extremely tractable systems and have a long history of experimental research.

The accelerating melt rates in the last 20 years are mainly caused by intrusions of warm Atlantic water into the glacier terminating fjords. However, estimates of submarine melt rates are usually based on indirect methods (difference between total mass loss from remote sensing methods and surface mass balance or estimated from measurements of ice velocities and ice thickness changes) and are, thus, still highly uncertain. Model results depend strongly on the models ability to simulate the small-scale fjord dynamics and other parameterizations. Large uncertainties also still exist in the processes in the fjords and how the glacial melt is transformed before released into the Greenland boundary current and subsequently into the interior of the adjacent ocean basins. These uncertainties might cause erroneous projections of GrIS mass loss rates and thus sea level for the next centuries. So far, there are not sufficient data available that might allow to trace and to quantify the glacial melt water in the ocean. This proposal will provide new data to assess the glacial melt water input in the ocean interior. Increasing melt water flow into key regions of the AMOC (e.g. Labrador Sea), are able to change local and basin wide circulation, thereby modifying dynamic topography and thus sea level. Based on the recent time series and on projections from climate models the GrIS mass loss might accelerate in the near future and this could also lead to more input of glacial melt water fractions into these key regions. Here we propose to measure and use the distributions of helium and neon isotopes in ocean water in the vicinity of one of the major outlet glaciers in northeastern Greenland (79N Glacier) and in the Greenland boundary current and the Labrador Sea to Estimate the basal melt water fraction in the near- and the far field of the 79N Glacier and how much of the glacial melt water is transported into the Greenland boundary current and the western Fram Strait. Estimate how much of the glacial melt water of the GrIS is transferred into the Labrador Sea and the LSW formation region and quantify whether the fractions of glacial melt has increased. Analyse from high resolution ice-ocean model how and where and to what amount subsurface melt water is transferred from the Greenland boundary current into the interior of the adjacent ocean basins. Analyse how an increase in the melt rate changes the regional sea level in the Labrador Sea and the subpolar North Atlantic and study which mechanisms are involved as mass increase, changes in the 3-D thermohaline structure and thus dynamic topography, changes in the large-scale circulation and associated changes in freshwater and heat distribution."@en ; rdfs:label "Estimates of basal melt water from Greenland: a driver for sea level changes"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2018-07-25"^^ ; dct:subject , ; geolink:hasAcronym "Labsea Melt"@en ; prov:startedAtTime "2016-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "DFG Priority Program (SPP-1889) Regional Sea Level Change and Society"@en ] . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:name "IGLESIAS MARROIG, Magdalena" . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The SeaDataNet pan-European infrastructure has been developed by NODCs and major research institutes from 34 countries.

Moreover, SeaDataNet is a key infrastructure driving several portals of the European Marine Observation and Data network (EMODnet), initiated by EU DG-MARE for Marine Knowledge, MSFD, and Blue Growth. SeaDataNet complements the Copernicus Marine Environmental Monitoring Service (CMEMS), coordinated by EU DG-GROW. However, more effective and convenient access is needed to better support European researchers. The standards, tools and services developed must be reviewed and upgraded to keep pace with demand, such as developments of new sensors, and international and IT standards. Also EMODnet and Copernicus pose extra challenges to boost performance and foster INSPIRE compliance. More data from more data providers must be made available, from European and international research projects and observing programmes. SeaDataCloud aims at considerably advancing SeaDataNet services and increasing their usage, adopting cloud and HPC technology for better performance. More users will be engaged and for longer sessions by including advanced services in a Virtual Research Environment. Researchers will be empowered with a collection of services and tools, tailored to their specific needs, supporting marine research and enabling generation of added-value products. Data concern the wide range of in situ observations and remote sensing data. To have access to the latest cloud technology and facilities, SeaDataNet will cooperate with EUDAT, a network of computing infrastructures that develop and operate a common framework for managing scientific data across Europe.

EutrophicationEnhanced primary productivity caused by nitrogen and phosphorous, organic pollution, intense catchment land use and habitat degradation affect almost all European surface waters. Ecosystem functions have been lost, and many aquatic species have disappeared from entire ecoregions. Recent European policies target a good ecological status of lakes, rivers and coastal ecosystems. To achieve this, water bodies need to be assessed by comparison with a quality target and, if the quality is below the target, to be restored. For many aquatic ecosystem types ecological assessment systems have been developed; river basin management plansOutlines restoration goals to be achieved and the measures required outline the required restorationActivity to improve the status of degraded waters, be it waste water treatment or structural improvements measures.

The project will analyse existing data from more than 90 databases compiled in previous and ongoing projects, covering all water categories, organism groups and environmental stressor types.

Wind data from European Remote Sensing Satellite-1/2 (ERS-1/2) over the LB are analysed and surface wind stress and wind stress curls are calculated. First, we employed an optimal interpolation scheme to build up a dataset for 1985-1997 on an 18km×18km grid. An ensemble mean SST field (T’) has been established with a rather weak horizontal gradient (19.4º C south-east of Rhodes to 22.4º C south-east of the LB). Second, we performed a composite analysis to obtain the monthly averaged SST anomaly field (Ť) deviation from the ensemble mean. Three areas of evident SST anomalies were found: south of Rhodes, south-east of Crete, and north-east of Cyprus. During the spring-to-summer transition (March to May), a small low anomaly is formed south-east of Crete (Ť < -1.4º C in May), and a small high anomaly is formed south of Rhodes (Ť >-0.4º C in May). During the autumn-to-winter transition (October to November), a small high anomaly forms south-east of Crete (Ť > 1.2º C in November), and a small low anomaly forms between Rhodes and Antalia Bay (Ť < -0.2º C in November). Third, we performed an empirical orthogonal function (EOF) analysis on the residual T” relative to T’+Ť in order to obtain transient and interannual variations of the SST fields. EOF1 explains 73% of the total variance and represents the warm/cool anomaly pattern with a maximum value in the region between the south of Rhodes and Cyprus and a minimum value off the western part of the Egyptian coast. EOF2 explains 6% of the total variance. A strong LB warm anomaly (1º C warmer) appears during August 1988, May 1994, and September-October-November 1994. A strong cool anomaly (1º C cooler) occurs during May 1987, November 1988, August 1989 and May 1992. The cross-correlation coefficient between wind stress curl from ERS-1/2 over the LB in the period from January 1992 to December 1997 and the SST anomaly were calculated, and it reveals the air-sea interaction in the LB."@en ; rdfs:label "surface temperature variability in the Levantine Basin of the Eastern Mediterranean"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-12-04"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:endedAtTime "1999-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1999-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "Fullbright Program of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars"@en ] . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "This complex forms the basin weather; the vortexes play a significant role for the mean oceanographical characteristics and their long-time variability (the sea climate).

Shelf areas are especially reach of dynamics processes which are interact each other on different scales: sea currents directly depend from wind, but they carry simultaneously indirect distance information, transmitting through the open sea motions and along the coastal waveguide - local jets with large-scale, topographically modulated, variability are formed. On this stage it is impossible to reconstruct adequately with model all the types of motion and find the different interactions estimations: there exist computer restrictions for mesh dimensions. It is well to use numerical models for local motion restriction under local physics forces influence, as well the large scales too.

In order to achieve these goals, metagenomic analysis will be performed on samples taken from a regular monitoring station near Erdemli. A modeling system, whose output can directly be compared to the results of the metagenomic and metatranscriptomic analysis, will be developed and the rates of the reactions performed by the bacteria will be obtained from the model by estimating the fixed parameters in the model that control these reaction rates using the physical, chemical, biological and genetic measurements performed at the station. Finally, the bacterial reaction rates determined by a combination of the numerical modeling system and the measurements at the station will be validated using isotope tracer experiments.

A LIFE project attempted to remove affected sediments from Antwerp’s harbours and to treat the material for eventual reuse. The use of tributyltin (TBT) in ship paints has been banned in the EU since the beginning of 2003. TBT is a toxic biocide that was used since the 1970s to prevent the growth of algae, barnacles and other organisms on ships’ hulls. The toxic substance, however, leaches from the paint into marine waters and eventually accumulates in sediments on the beds of harbours and ports. The removal of these sediments is vital to prevent TBT being reabsorbed into the water. The project, which was carried out by the Antwerp Port Authority (Gemeentelijk Havenbedrijf Antwerpen), aimed to demonstrate an integrated approach to the elimination of TBT from the marine environment: prevention, removal, treatment and finally reuse. Specific objectives included the following: - Assess the environmental impact of available alternatives for TBT. - Evaluate the release of TBT from sediments into the aquatic environment during dredging operations. - Test on a pilot-scale several treatment technologies for TBT contaminated sediments. - Identify possibilities for the reuse of treated sediments. The port teamed up with the Environmental Research Centre (ERC) in Hofstade, (Aalst) to carry out the chemical analyses and perform lab-scale feasibility experiments for the different sediment and water remediation techniques. Five-point plan: The project was expected to produce a list of environmentally friendly alternatives to TBT in anti-fouling (that is, the prevention of growth of organisms) systems. It was also expected to determine limits and best practice for dredging operations in order to minimise the release of TBT from sediments. To achieve its aims, the project focused on five main action areas: 1) The drawing up of a questionnaire on alternatives for TBT to be sent to interested parties in the EU including coating producers, ship-repair yards, ship-owners etc. From the answers received, the project would be able to assess the impact of the alternatives based on their characteristics, active compounds, methods of application, energy use, waste generation and ease of maintenance. 2) Simulation of dredging operations on a pilot-scale and analysis of TBT concentrations in the aqueous phase. TBT concentrations would be correlated with turbidity measurements taken simultaneously. 3) The dredging of about 2000 m3 of TBT contaminated sediments form the Port of Antwerp and elsewhere in Flanders and its treatment in pilotscale installations, on-site or off-site, using thermal treatment, bioremediation, washing and separation, phyto-remediation and electrochemical treatment. An evaluation of TBT removal rates for each technique was to be performed. 4) The construction of a pilot-scale treatment plant for the purification of TBT contaminated waters created during dredging or treatment operations. An evaluation of the removal efficiency of this plant for TBT was planned. 5) The reuse of cleaned sediments in landscaping, dike reinforcement and construction. Results: While a standard practice for the reuse or application of sediment on land has yet to be reached, geotechnical and chemical requirements were developed. Chemical criteria were developed by the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) in accordance with Flemish legislation on reuse of soil and treated mineral waste for construction purposes. The project provided a general framework for quantifying the effects of toxic materials that can be used in discussions with the Flemish authorities and for the development of European quality controls on the reuse of sediments. Some results of the project could also be used to formulate recommendations and restrictions on dredging activities.

For this purpose, laboratory investigations (including tank experiments) and field experiments are carried out. The gained insights serve the development of a detailed process model with special consideration of the marine surface film (Sea Surface Microlayer, SML). The tank experiments are carried out with natural environmental samples and with cultures of tropical organism communities. This will allow the investigation of the process chain of OM from the water into the aerosol particles under controlled conditions. Based on the results of the tank experiments, a first emission parameterization is developed. The tank experiments also serve to develop common methodological approaches for the field experiments, which take place mainly at the Cape Verde Atmospheric Observatory (CVAO). In this region, Mauritanian buoyant currents and nutrient inputs from Saharan dust regularly increase marine productivity. The synchronous sampling of surface water, SML, aerosol particles and cloud water and their chemical, biological and physical characterization will map the process chain under natural conditions.

With the EPICA project, the European Community is striving to make a fundamental contribution to better understanding this problematic, on the basis of two deep drillings in the Antarctic. It is primarily the deep drilling at Dronning Maud Land which should make it possible to study the climate-ice cap-sea level relationship, especially in the Atlantic sector. This Atlantic sector is important because of the fast and radical variations observed in the northern part (Summit, Greenland) and because of its relevance for Europe. In order to develop a coherent picture of the history of the climate and the physical environment, it is necessary to link the direct data coming from the deep drilling with, firstly, atmospheric circulation and, secondly, with the dynamics of the ice cap. This research project primarily aims to make a contribution to this latter aspect of EPICA, by using numerical modelisation and acquiring data via remote sensing and own ground observations. OBJECTIVES 1. Study of the regional behaviour of the Antarctic ice cap a. Specific function of the marginal processes (processes at the base of the cap, ice-ocean interactions, dynamics of the grounding-line, etc.) b. Role of the continental ice flows in the stability of the ice cap. 2.

It aims at making optimal use of seismic reflection with broadband sources such as sparkers, which were successfully used in the studies performed on large lakes and recently also along the European continental margins. OBJECTIVES In accordance with the recommendations of SCAR/ANTOSTRAT, the research will focus on a number of specific scientific objectives: - on the shelf itself: analysis of possible residual sedimentary deposits as potential evidence of smaller pulsations of the ice cap, which would not have reached the edge of the shelf itself; - on the outer part of the shelf and the higher parts of the continental slope: the spatial relation between the large zones of progradation of the 'trough-mouth fans', deposited in front of the discharge system of large ice flows; - the spatial and relative chronological relation between the deposits on the continental slope itself and those at the base of the slope; - the spatial and relative chronological relation between large-scale instabilities (debris flows) on the continental slope and the normal accretion of 'trough-mouth fans', in order to be able to determine whether these processes occur in-phase or out-of-phase. In order to be able to optimally project these processes on an absolute chronology of the glacial evolution of the Antarctic margins, the above-mentioned research efforts will (within the framework of the operational possibilities) be integrated into the new phase of Antarctic ODP activities planned for the coming years. On the methodological level, these scientific objectives imply the development of a seismic reflection technique which - in the polar waters - will guarantee optimal broadband-characteristics and a maximum signal-to-noise ratio in the useful bandwidth. To this end, at least one of the components of the seismic system - the streamer - will be towed at around 300 meters below the water's surface, in combination with a surface streamer when weather conditions allow. In a second phase, one also intends to immerse a sparker source, which implies the study of the behaviour of a sparker system in a 'subtow' configuration with a long cable length. Special attention will be paid to examining the possibilities for using this new methodology, particularly in geotechnical site explorations on the continental slope (preparation of drilling sites, study of ground instabilities)."@en ; rdfs:label "Dynamic of the antarctic shelf-slope: an innovative geophysic approach"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-06-01"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:endedAtTime "2000-11-30"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1996-12-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:name "Manca B." . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:name "Valerius, Jennifer" . a prov:Activity , geolink:Program , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The overall purpose of the project is to provide a quantitative observationally based assessment of circulation, water mass transformations, and transformation mechanisms in the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean.

Data were collected on James Cook cruise JC187 between August and October 2019. Eight moorings were deployed along the Congo Canyon at warer depths of 2 to 5 km to measure frequency, duration, and run-out distance of multiple flows; together with their velocity, turbulence and sediment concentration structures; as well as changes in water, sediment and organic carbon discharge. This project set out to answer the following key questions about flow behaviour: What controls flow duration, and does flow stretching cause near-continuous canyon flushing? We will test a new hypothesis that predicts flows will stretch dramatically as a 'hot spot' of faster moving fluid runs away from the rest of the event, thereby producing near-continuous flushing of submarine canyons. What controls runout and whether flows become more powerful? We will test whether turbidity currents tend towards one of two distinct modes of behaviour, in which they erode and accelerate (a process termed ignition), or deposit sediment and dissipate. How is flow behaviour and character recorded by deposits? This is important because deposits are the only record of most turbidity currents. How does flow behaviour affect the transfer and burial of terrestrial organic carbon in the deep-sea? It was proposed recently that burial of terrestrial organic carbon in the deep sea is very efficient, and an important control on long-term atmospheric CO2 levels. This hypothesis implies little fractionation of terrestrial organic carbon occurs during submarine transport. Composition of organic carbon buried by the offshore flows is similar to that supplied by the river. We will test this hypothesis by analysing amounts and types of organic carbon along the offshore pathway in both flows and deposits.

Further objectives include the isolation and characterisation of resultant proteins and the examination of whether they possess metal-binding capabilities. The seaweed genes, whose expression is metal regulated, have been isolated from a subtracted cDNA library in a previous study carried out at the ERG, WIT. Relative quantitative real-time PCR is used to determine the expression levels of these induced genes following P. lanosa’s exposure to various metals. The study also aims to construct a genomic library for P. lanosa and to then screen to investigate the possible existence of gene-encoded Class I and Class II metallothionein genes, along with other genes responsible for the production of stress-induced proteins. Another aspect of this project relates to the bacterial community present on the seaweed surface. Our aim is to determine if bacterial strains isolated from the surface of a number of seaweed species have the ability to accumulate and tolerate elevated levels of heavy metals in polluted waters, and to determine if these marine bacteria, identified by molecular methodologies, contribute to the seaweed’s own ability to accumulate and detoxify metals from the marine environment.

Therefore, the following objectives are to be achieved: - Improvement of the reliability of the analytical technique - Development of a reference material with known VOC contents as a tool of quality control - Improvement of sampling and sample storage conditions, on board as in the lab. Planned activities and expected results The analytical technique is based on a purge-and-trap equipment, coupled with a gas chromatograph station, in turn equipped with a mass spectrometer. At first, the analytical methodology will be improved and validated, supported by the development of a reference material and the calculation of control limits. Secondly, the integrity and stability of the reference material under different storing conditions will be studied. The integrity of the samples during sampling and sample storage on board and in the laboratory, using a fish model based on a fish oil containing semipermeable membrane device (SPMD) will be investigated. After validation of the appropriate sampling and storage methodology various international laboratories will be contacted to ask for their willingness to participate in a proficiency testing scheme, in order to further evaluate the robustness of the methodology.

Currents used in the model have been generated by a numerical ocean circulation model (POM). The basic processes affecting the fate of the oil spill are taken into account and parameterized in the model.

The project will develop a comprehensive strategy for the management of health issues in the Irish aquaculture industry. Particular emphasis will be placed on preventative measures, early warning systems, reporting and training. This project will result in the publication of a series of protocols, leaflets and a risk assessment framework in order to increase the ability of the Irish finfish aquaculture industry and regulatory agencies to manage fish health issues in a pro-active manner. This should lead to improved industry performance and enhanced survival of stocks, which will support the competitive position of the Irish aquaculture sector. This project will assist the Irish finfish sector to adapt to the requirements of the new fish health Directive 2006/88/EC, which will come into force in 2008.
