MedGLOSS project recognizing the importance of the subject for the region, as well as its capability to serve as a model for the world-wide processes, the IOC and the Commission Internationale pour l'Exploration Scientifique de la mer Mediterranee (CIESM), have agreed in 1996 to jointly cooperate in the study of this important subject by establishing a long-term monitoring network system for systematic sea-level measurements in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. The system, named MedGLOSS (Mediterranean regional subsystem of the Global Sea Level Observing System), a monitoring network system for systematic measurements in the Mediterranean and Black Seas, is being developed by applying basic GLOSS requirements and methodology, aiming to provide high-quality standardized data, which can then be directly applied for the various regional and world-wide studies.

The project builds upon existing knowledge, identifies and involves relevant actors as well as addresses different spatial scales ranging from local, national to the macro-regional level. Specific objectives are to: a) analyse governance systems and their information needs regarding MSP in the BSR for developing an operational, transnational model for MSP, while maintaining compliance with existing governance systems; b) develop methods and tools for assessments of different plan proposals based on an approach including spatially explicit pressures and effects on maritime ecosystem services; c) create a spatial data infrastructure for the BSR facilitating broad access to information; d) design and develop an innovative web-based decision support system providing easy access to information through intelligent discovery.

\r\nAn FP7 Collaborative Project under topic SPA.2013.1.1-04: Provision of access to simulated and observed climate datasets and climate indicator toolbox.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nCLIPC will provide access to climate information of direct relevance to a wide variety of users, from scientists to policy makers and private sector decision makers. Information will include data from satellite and in-situ observations, climate models and re-analyses, transformed data products to enable impacts assessments and climate change impact indicators. The platform will complement existing GMES/Copernicus pre-operational components, but will focus on datasets which provide information on climate variability on decadal to centennial time scales from observed and projected climate change impacts in Europe, and will provide a toolbox to generate, compare and rank key indicators. Expanding climate data volumes will be supported with a distributed, scalable system, based on international standards. Guidance information on the quality and limitations of all data products will be provided. An on-going user consultation process will feed back into all the products developed within the project. The \"one-stop-shop\" platform will allow users to find answers to their questions related to climate and climate impacts data, and to ensure that the providence of science and policy relevant data products is thoroughly documented. Clarity of provenance will be supported by providing access to intermediate data products. Documentation will include information on the technical quality of data, on metrics related to scientific quality, and on uncertainties in and limitations of the data. A climate impacts toolkit will provide documentation on methods and data sources used to generate climate impact indicators. The toolkit will be made available for integration with Climate-ADAPT. The CLIPC consortium brings together the key institutions in Europe working on developing and making available datasets on climate observations and modelling, and on impact analysis.\r\n

Biofouling causes serious technical and financial problems for European marine aquaculture. Structural fouling causes increased loads, abrasion, clogging and enhanced drag. For cultured animals, fouling can overgrow them, compete for space/resources and reduce growth to uneconomic levels. Financial impacts can be enormous, ranging up to total loss of product. The project has two basic objectives: 1: To devise and test novel approaches to antifouling. 2: To develop and disseminate approaches to fouling management.

Integrated modelling will examine various scenarios driven by changes in climate and pollutant levels and establish a framework for the classification and the assessment of estuaries and coastal environments. Estuarine and coastal waters are highly dynamic environments subject to marked spatial-temporal changes in physical, chemical and biological conditions. Interpreting the past and forecasting changes to the form and function of these complex environments require quantification, understanding and modelling of the key processes involving physical-chemical-biological interactions. These include both the impact of processes on the biota, as well as the influence of the biota on their environments. Knowledge of such interactions is poor, but essential in relation to the most important environmental issues facing man in the coming decades, namely sea level rise / climate change and their impact on intertidal habitats, coastal defences, and the effects of a diverse range of pollutants on biological resources, as well as the potential feedback on estuarine morphology. The new combination of PML scientists provides a unique capability to conduct integrated and multi-disciplinary field studies. These will primarily focus on physical-chemical-biological interactions which determine particle / sediment dynamics, contaminant transport, their impact on and the feedback provided by key biota, and the consequences for estuarine form and function.

\r\nIt still happens that marine data collected by public authorities, researchers and private \r\noperators of coastal or offshore facilities do not arrive to the \r\nnational or regional repositories and are thus unavailable to scientists\r\nand engineers. The aim of the EMODnet Ingestion project is therefore to develop and operate a new EMODnet portal with services that will facilitate data holders from public and private sectors to submit marine data sets for further processing and safekeeping by data repositories and subsequent distribution through EMODnet thematic portals.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe data repositories in this context are existing data managing organisations that are involved in EMODnet thematic portals such as NODCs, Hydrographic Offices, Geological institutes, Biological institutes, and others. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nPrimary focus is on data providers and their data sets that are not yet handled and part of the mainstream processes of these data repositories\r\n

\r\n

\r\nExisting pathways for each of the EMODnet thematic portals will be analysed and streamlined, where possible, to route submitted data from the Central Ingestion portal to the appropriate data repository that will take care of processing, QC and formatting for local storage and publishing, followed by population in the European infrastructures that are driving the EMODnet thematic portals.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe \r\nproject does not aim to set up a new permanent data repository, but to develop a central service that will provide a complementary service to the existing data repositories. Moreover the project will undertake active promotion and marketing activities in order to identify relevant marine data providers that are not yet routinely submitting data sets to national data repositories and to convince and help them to submit their data packages for open access and use in national repositories and EMODnet.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe priority for exploring external data sets will be set by the EMODnet Thematic portals that are interested in a specific collection of data types. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nAll project partners will analyse the situation in their country and identify potential data sources and their providers for the different data themes, taking into account the priorities. Also focus will be on developing use cases such as concerning monitoring data for offshore renewable energy locations that will be instrumental as demonstrators.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe consortium includes NODCs, Hydrographic Offices, Geological Surveys, Biology institutes, marine research institutes and a number of SMEs. Also it includes the oordinators of the EMODnet thematic portals for biology, chemistry, geology, bathymetry, physics and human activities. \r\n

The main objective of the proposed research will be to detect and quantify the transfer of shelf and surface derived organic matter to the benthos of the shelf, shelf break and slope on a seasonal, bathymetric and interannual basis. Detailed aims of this study are : - The acquisition of annual average primary production estimates that are completely lacking from this region. - The biogeochemical exchanges between the Cretan continental shelf and the adjacent open sea ecosystem of the oligotrophic Cretan Sea. - Investigations into the most characteristic pelagic and benthic energy transfer pathways. - Estimates of the temporal and spatial variability of the benthic standing stock. - The measurement of a variety of water column and sedimentary environmental parameters. - Sediment community oxygen consumption measurements (metabolic demand), in order to detect seasonal fluctuations in relation to variations in the food supplied to the benthos. - Nutrient fluxes between the sediment and the overlying water column."@en ; rdfs:label "CINCS - Pelagic-Benthic Coupling in the Oligotrophic Cretan Sea (NE Mediterranean)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2015-03-13"^^ ; dct:subject ; prov:endedAtTime "1996-09-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1994-09-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP) is a cooperative international project. It seeks to develop and maintain a global ocean Temperature-Salinity resource with data that are both up-to-date and of the highest quality possible. Making global measurements of ocean temperature and salinity (T-S) quickly and easily accessible to users is the primary goal of the GTSPP. Both real-time data transmitted over the Global Telecommunications System (GTS), and delayed-mode data received by the NODC are acquired and incorporated into a continuously managed database. Countries contributing to the project are Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, and the United States. Canada's Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS) leads the project, and has the operational responsibility to gather and process the real-time data. MEDS accumulates real-time data from several sources via the GTS. They check the data for several types of errors, and remove duplicate copies of the same observation before passing the data on to NODC. The quality control procedures used in GTSPP were developed by MEDS, who also coordinated the publication of those procedures through the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC). \r\n\r\nDevelopment of the GTSPP (then called the Global Temperature-Salinity Pilot Project) began in 1989. The short-term goal of the GTSPP was to respond to the needs of the Tropical Ocean and Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Experiment and the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) for temperature and salinity data. The longer term goal was to develop and implement an end to end data management system for temperature and salinity data, which could serve as a model for future oceanographic data management systems.\r\n\r\nGTSPP went into operation in November 1990. The first version of the GTSPP Project Plan was published the same year. Since that time there have been many developments and some changes in direction including a decision by IGOSS and IODE to end the pilot phase and implement GTSPP as a permanent programme. Member states of IOC and WMO decided it was time to publish an updated version of the programme plan.\r\n\r\nIn addition to presenting information on the further development of the GTSPP this document highlights the more important improvements to international data management practice. This new plan serves both as a guide to future development of the GTSPP and a concise source of information on progress to date.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Role of GTSPP is \r\n - to improve the timeliness, quality, and amount of ocean data available to national and global operational and research programs;\r\n -to foster international cooperation in developing and implementing the international data management model of the future."@en ; rdfs:label "The Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-11-19"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "2004-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1989-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The program focused on environmental conditions changes in the Black Sea and effect of anthropogenic factors on the ecosystem state including pollutions, invasion of Mnemiopsis leidyi, euthrophication and overfishing"@en ; rdfs:label "Black Sea Enviromental Program-1"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-02-04"^^ ; dct:subject , , , , , , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "1996-12-30"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1993-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "The World Ocean project the Black Sea"@en ] . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "An ambitious project to manage the Baltic Sea ecosystem.\r\nThe Baltic Sea is an ecosystem under extreme stress.

Razor clam fisheries represent an important economic activity in Portugal and NW Spain. To meet a growing market demand both within and beyond Europe, commercial harvesting of razor clams has recently developed ini Ireland and the UK. However, concerns exist regarding the environmental impacts of some of the harvesting techniques currently practised in razor clam fisheries and their expansion in Europe, which may result in the classic boom/bust scenario. The SHARE project assesses the environmental impacts of current harvesting/fishing techniques for razor clams and makes recommendations on more sustainable fishing practices. SHARE also aims to develop technical measures for sustainable production through cultivation and stock enhancement. A genetic study of razor clam populations in Western Europe provides information on diversity of stocks and speciation. Finally, the project investigates product development, quality indices and improved transport methodologies to maximise market opportunities for razor clams.

This route was previously named the Northeast Passage, but is now more often known under its Russian name - the Northern Sea Route (NSR). \r\nINSROP sub-programmes:\r\n 1) Natural Conditions and Ice Navigation \r\n 2) Environmental Factors \r\n 3) Trade and Commercial Shipping Aspects \r\n 4) Political, Legal and Strategic Factors \r\nThe NSR represents an up to 40% saving of distance from Northern Europe to Northeast Asia and the north-west coast of North America compared to southerly sea routes via Suez or Panama. Moreover, the Russian Arctic holds enormous reserves of oil, gas and other natural resources which may best be exported by sea.\r\n\r\nAs we enter the 21st century, technological, political and even climatic developments are again making the NSR an interesting possibility. Russia officially opened the NSR for foreign ships in 1991, and better and less costly ice-breaking technology is being developed.\r\n\r\nAcknowledging the need to establish an extensive NSR knowledge base, the multidisciplinary INSROP was created to investigate all aspects of potential, increased, international use of the NSR. The programme, which has primarily been a joint Norwegian-Japanese-Russian venture, enlisted more than 450 scholars in 14 countries.\r\n\r\nIn all, 167 technical reports on a very broad spectre of subjects have been published, as well as several other end products (INSROP's Integration Book, INSROP,s Simulation Study, the INSROP GIS Database and the NSR Environmental Atlas) which have integrated the INSROP results in different ways. All products have been made available to the public. \r\n\r\nThe Project has also resulted in several books that have been published by international, academic publishers. Shortly after the completion of the programme, the Northern Sea Route User Conference was organized by the main INSROP partners in Oslo, Norway, 18-20 November 1999, in order to disseminate INSROP results to the shipping industry and other potential NSR users and stake-holders.\r\n\r\nThe most obvious obstacles to commercially viable shipping in the NSR are the harsh natural conditions, including ice most of the year. Even though modern technology can overcome such practical difficulties, the investments needed to build a fleet of adequate ice-classified cargo vessels are staggering. An equally big problem, is for Russia to muster the political and economic strength needed to uphold a stable, well-functioning infrastructure along the NSR, the most crucial task being to maintain the capacity of the Russian ice-breaker fleet."@en ; rdfs:label "International Northern Sea Route Programme"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-11-20"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "1999-03-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1993-06-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "Research on which aspects of time and space are relevant for the restoration of the transitional area of salt and fresh water and on how the chance of success of the restoration measures can be assessed."@en ; rdfs:label "Restoration of the transitional area of salt and fresh water"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-12-31"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "2005-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1999-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "WONS* ecological restoration and compensation"@en ] . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The WAVETRAIN II action builds strongly upon the logics of its predecessor the FP6 WAVETRAIN I project.

If all these environmental data were to be systematically arranged, this would accelerate the informing of the public and improve the co-ordination of cross-border research, thereby enabling a greater understanding of the ecology of the Gulf of Trieste. Past environmental data analyses about the Gulf of Trieste enabled only a limited study of the natural phenomena dynamics and referred to marine problems only from specific perspectives, e.g. in relation to the exploitation of fish compositions, biological phenomena affecting tourism (mucilage, sea algal bloom, jellyfish).

Scientific objectives and approach Sediments containing typical marine bacteria, known or expected to be producers of secondary metabolites from selected coastal, shelf and deep-sea areas of the North-East Atlantic and other open ocean regions are to be compared. Sedimentary-microbiological and symbiotic interactions, constituting factors of the sea floor in all water depth, are investigated and quantified. Sediment samples from an enclosed sea with oceanographic-environmental parameters different from the open ocean, the Mediterranean, and the eastern Mediterranean in particular, are special regional targets. Additional steps are cultivation experiments in the lab, isolation and pre-screening. Further tasks are the study of cultivation opportunities in the ocean, characterisation of bacteria and their secondary metabolites, structure elucidation, lead oriented multi-screening and bioassays. \r\nA general evaluation of responsible uses by life science industries and of existing and forthcoming rules and regulations will complement the research on the commercial and regulatory side.

Gilson between 1900 and 1910 and new sampling campaigns. Based on some elements found in ancient literature, we formulate the hypothesis that some stations of Gilson?s programme were located on areas yet avoided by fishermen in the early 20th century. These areas could have acted as shelters for the local benthic biodiversity, at a time when pollution and eutrophication were yet strongly reduced. These elements also tend to indicate that the strong development of fishing gears which took place in the 1920s, in particular the emergence of engine powered vessels, has allowed to exploit some of them later on.\r\n\r\nIn the recent literature, no study allows to determine whether changes have occurred on these grounds since the 1900s. The knowledge of the epifauna of our maritime zone remains incomplete. Comprehensive studies on the nature and distribution of ?gravels? are just starting and their epifauna remains poorly known. On the other hand, it is acknowledged that such grounds are generally rich and attract larger predator fishes. Consequently, it is reasonable to believe that they have ? or have had- a certain importance for the local ichtyofauna as feeding grounds.\r\n\r\nThe project will target three main objectives :\r\n\r\n- The definition of a ?reference situation? for ?gravel? habitats of the southern bight of the North Sea (Eastern coast) : analysis of the historical collection.\r\n- The description of the current situation at reference stations\r\n- The analysis of changes observed between the historical and the current situations\r\n\r\nOn one hand, this project will provide facts to support ancient texts describing the Hinder banks as a rich and ecologically important region.

\r\nThe EMODnet Hydrography - Seabed Mapping - Bathymetry projects made good progress in developing the EMODnet Bathymetry portal to provide overview and access to available bathymetric survey datasets and to generate an harmonised digital bathymetry for Europe's sea basins. Up till February 2014 more than 9200 bathymetric survey datasets, managed by 15 data centres from 9 countries and originated from 131 institutes, have been gathered and populated in the EMODnet Bathymetry Data Discovery and Access service, adopting SeaDataNet standards. These datasets have been used as input for analysing and generating the EMODnet digital terrain model (DTM), for the following sea basins:\r\n

\r\n
    \r\n\t
  • the Greater North Sea
  • \r\n\t
  • the English Channel and Celtic Seas
  • \r\n\t
  • Western and Central Mediterranean Sea and Ionian Sea
  • \r\n\t
  • Bay of Biscay, Iberian coast and North-East Atlantic
  • \r\n\t
  • Adriatic Sea
  • \r\n\t
  • Aegean - Levantine Sea (Eastern Mediterranean)
  • \r\n\t
  • Azores - Madeira EEZ
  • \r\n
\r\n

\r\nThis is being extended to full European coverage around June 2014 by including also the Baltic Sea,Black Sea, Norwegian and Icelandic Seas, and Canary Islands. For the Baltic Sea synergy takes place with the Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database project of the Baltic Sea Hydrographic Commission.    \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe Hydrography Viewing service gives users wide functionality for viewing and downloading the EMODnet digital bathymetry:\r\n

\r\n
    \r\n\t
  • water depth in gridded form on a DTM grid of a quarter a minute of longitude and latitude
  • \r\n\t
  • option to view QC parameters of individual DTM cells and references to source data
  • \r\n\t
  • option to download DTM tiles in different formats: ESRI ASCII, XYZ, CSV, NetCDF (CF),GeoTiff and SD for Fledermaus 3D viewer software
  • \r\n\t
  • option for users to create their Personal Layer and to upload multibeam survey ASCII datasets for automatic processing into personal DTMs following the EMODNet standards
  • \r\n
\r\n

\r\nThe NetCDF (CF) DTM files are fit for use in a special 3D Viewer software package which is based on the existing open source NASA World Wind JSK application. It has been developed in the frame of the EU FP7 Geo-Seas project (another sibling of SeaDataNet for marine geological and geophysical data) and is freely available. The 3D viewer also supports the ingestion of WMS overlay maps.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe EMODnet consortium is actively seeking cooperation with additional Hydrographic Offices, research institutes, authorities and private organisations for more data sets (single and multibeam surveys, sounding tracks, composite products) to contribute to an even better geographical coverage. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThese datasets will be used for upgrading and extending the EMODnet regional Digital Terrain Models (DTM). The datasets themselves are not distributed but described in the metadata service, giving clear information about the background survey data used for the DTM, their access restrictions, originators and distributors and facilitating requests by users to originators.
\r\n
\r\nThis way the portal provides originators of bathymetric data sets an attractive shop window for promoting their data sets to potential users, without losing control. \r\n

The review will lead to an assessment of the different methodologies used. In particular the reliability and/or the limitations of the emission factors and the calculation methods will be assessed. This task will also include a brief analysis of the comparability of UNFCCC emissions data with other reporting frameworks for atmospheric emissions and bunker fuel statistics, such as for example the International Energy Agency.\r\n\r\nSecondly, the methodology of monitoring, reporting and estimating ships? emissions of CO2, SO2 and NOx in Belgium will be evaluated. Problems will be identified and proposals for improvement will be suggested, taking into account new reporting and monitoring options for SO2 and NOx emissions from ships via bunker fuel delivery notes, upon entry into force of Annex VI MARPOL 73/78. Various databases (Port State Control, Pilotage, Vessel Traffic Service, Sea Ports and others) with ships? particulars and databases generating bunker fuel statistics (Federal Energy Administration, Customs and others) will be analyzed and classified according to following parameters: 1. quality of data and potentials for quality control and estimating SO2 and NOx emissions from ships; 2. short time frames to deliver basic data (preferable electronic); 3. multi-purpose reporting; 4. potentials for geographical emission allocations, such as national (Belgian ports, Belgian part of the North sea) ? international; 5. potential for improvement (technical, cost and policy) and connections with other databases; 6. user friendliness.\r\n\r\nThirdly, a fine tuning of CO2, SO2 and NOx emissions from ships in the Belgian part of the North Sea will take place for the year 2002 as example. In contrast to international studies using simple ?top-down? approaches, this project will use a ?bottom-up? approach in order to identify SO2 and NOx emissions from ships in the Belgian ports, the Belgian Territorial Sea (TS) and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Therefore we need to identify vessels sailing to and from Belgian seaports, their technical particulars and average sulphur content, the fuel consumption (daily), sailing days, ? in order to gain more detailed information on a smaller geographical scale (grid) compared to international studies, to calculate those emissions and to be able to review emissions factors and calculation methods. \r\n\r\nHet Maritiem Instituut\r\nis a research institute of the Department of Public International Law of Ghent University.

The establishment of Marine Protected Area (MPA) networks and installing Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) are important ways to achieve these goals.The protection and management of marine biodiversity has focused on placing MPAs in areas important for biodiversity. This has proved successful within the MPAs, but had little impact beyond their boundaries. In the highly populated Mediterranean and the Black Seas, bordered by many range states, the declaration of extensive MPAs is unlikely at present, so limiting the bearing of protection. The establishment of MPAs networks can cope with this obstacle but, to be effective, such networks must be based on solid scientific knowledge and properly managed (not merely “paper parks”). OWF, meanwhile, must be placed where the winds are suitable for producing power, but they should not have any significant impact on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, or on human activities. The project will have two main themes: 1 - identify prospective networks of existing or potential MPAs in the Mediterranean and the Black Seas, shifting from a local perspective (centred on single MPAs) to the regional level (network of MPAs) and finally the basin scale (network of networks). The identification of the physical and biological connections among MPAs will elucidate the patterns and processes of biodiversity distribution. Measures to improve protection schemes will be suggested, based on maintaining effective exchanges (biological and hydrological) between protected areas. The national coastal focus of existing MPAs will be widened to both off shore and deep sea habitats, incorporating them into the networks through examination of current legislation, to find legal solutions to set up transboundary MPAs. 2 - explore where OWF might be established, producing an enriched wind atlas both for the Mediterranean and the Black Seas. OWF locations will avoid too sensitive habitats but the possibility for them to act as stepping-stones through MPAs, without interfering much with human activities, will be evaluated. Socioeconomic studies employing ecosystem services valuation methods to develop sustainable approaches for both MPA and OWF development will also be carried out, to complement the eco ogical and technological parts of the project, so as to provide guidelines to design, manage and monitor networks of MPAs and OWF. Two pilot projects (one in the Mediterranean Sea and one in the Black Sea) will test in the field the assumptions of theoretical approaches, based on previous knowledge, to find emerging properties in what we already know, in the light of the needs of the project. The projectcovers many countries and involves researchers across a vast array of subjects, in order toachieve a much-needed holistic approach to environmental protection. It will help to integrate the Mediterranean and Black Seas scientific communities through intense collective activities, combined with strong communications with stakeholders and the public at large.

\r\nThe idea of the project was derived from the need to comply with EU legal environmental obligations in the water sector, where a big emphasis is given to the control of pollution by hazardous substances. As EU Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD, 76/464/EEC and daughter directives) and the Water Framework Directive (WFD, 2000/60/EC) states, all EU Member States have to control hazardous substances based on European wide quality standards and should aim at progressive reduction of pollution of the aquatic environment by hazardous substances and phasing out the emissions of hazardous priority substances.
\r\nHowever existing information on use and discharge of hazardous substances to water environment in Lithuania is very limited and more information is needed on actual concentrations in main pollution sources effluents to fulfil these legal requirements. Therefore the aforementioned project was initiated. The main objective of the project was to investigate the occurrence of selected WFD priority substances and some other pollutants in wastewater, sewage sludge and the receiving environment (surface water and sediments) and obtain measurement data on their concentrations. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nData collection concentrated on discharges from largest urban wastewater treatment plants and selected sampling sites on transboundary rivers and in transitional waters to the Baltic Sea. All together the project covered 44 sites, where 9 hazardous substances groups were analyzed (metals, phenols and their ethoxylates, organotin compounds, brominated diphenylethers, phtalates and their ethoxylates, chlorinated parafins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, chloroorganic pesticides, pentachlorphenol and some other substances such as chlorpyrifos, cyanides, AOX at some sites) and ecotoxicity tests were performed. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nBy side of fulfilling the major goal of the project, the experience exchange among Lithuanian and Finnish experts working in the field took place. Experts of Environmental Protection Agency of Lithuania have visited Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) to get familiar with analytical methods and assess the possibilities to develop new method for the analysis of hazardous substances. \r\n

\r\nProject was financed by the Finnish Ministry of the Environment, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); Report was prepared by Ms. Z. Dudutyte from the Baltic Environmental Forum (BEF), Mr.  Levonas Manusadzianas from the Institute of Botany, Ms. Rasa Sceponaviciute from the Center for Environmental Policy; Editors: EPA (Lithuania), SYKE (Finnland) and Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania. \r\n

\r\nThis project on siltation and dredging of Algerian ports and their neighbourhoods and the impact of dredged material on the marine environment has allowed us to identify the following: \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe first point is related to high amounts of sand and silt that accumulate in the ports in addition to other disadvantages. Fast speed of silting of some ports (Sidi Fredj Djendjen, Skikda) not only causes traffic jams at the entrance passes, thereby reducing vessel activity, but also non-use of some wharves (Djendjen). \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe second point is related to the quality of sediment dredged from ports and their impact on marine flora and fauna, especially fish by looking at the influence of the anthropogenic impact on the structure and the organization of assemblies fish from the Algerian coast. Indeed, in addition to the large quantities of sediment dredged, there is their very important contamination by micropollutants like heavy metals, hydrocarbons ...This raises the question of the fate of dredged material from ports that depend on their contamination levels and standards applied in the environmental protection.  The reuse of dredged material has been discussed. It is possible and profitable in many cases: port of Djendjen, Beni Saf, Sidi Fredj ... \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe third point is related to the scheduling of dredging operations. The lack of a regular program of maintenance dredging for each port causes the accumulation of huge quantities of sediment at these ports. \r\n

Nowadays the interest to the artificial breeding of some fish specis is determined by the impossibility to satisfy the needs of the trade from natural fish populations. The possibility to include sturgeon and turbot in the list of artifical breeding species depends on technological and genetical problems. The genetic-biochemical structure of the turbot along the Bulgarian Black Sea coast has not been yet investigated. genetic markers for population and species identification are very important for the correct stocks determination and respectively for the rational exploitataion of the species. The problems of genetic identification of sturgeon and turbot populations, hybrids and their products in connection with their rational exploitation correspond to the objectives of the project. It is necessary to improve scientific-based fishery management of sturgeons and turbot and build a basin - wide monitoring system (database) in order to facilitate adaprive management.

Tools are needed to operationally monitor and forecast those parameters which have key functions in these ecosystems. The final goal is the ability to produce routine assessments of the spatial distribution of nutrients at any given moment and to describe its evolution in time. \r\nPIONEER will set up analysis systems for routine day-to-day monitoring, analysis and short-term prediction of nutrient distributions in the Odra and Ebro estuaries, which are located in coastal regions with significant impacts from nutrient loads. The project is focussed on integrating presently available technology and methodology in data management, geostatistical and dynamical data assimilation and numerical modelling in cooperation with scientific institutions, management authorities and commercial companies. Since the on-time delivery of reliable nutrient data can be achieved at present only with considerable employment of specialized personnel, the skills and potentials of these systems will be demonstrated during several weeks periods simulating real-timeoperational conditions with data previously sampled. The perequisites to run such systems under real-time and continuous operational mode will be discussed. As a by-product, the project will offer estimates of the predictability of the estuarine ecosystems on time scales of days and weeks. \r\nThe overall approach of PIONEER parallels that of weather forecasting in that actual point obervations are brought together with a best guess into a data assimilation scheme. This analysis forms the initial state of the forecast . Since the application of data assimilation to nutrient forecasting is new, three different assimilation schemes of increasing complexity and skill will be explored: straightformward linear interpolation, geostatistics and dynamical data assimilation. Geostatistics uses a model of multivriate spatial-temporal correlation functions to optimally estimate the spatial distribution of a natural resource. Dynamical data assimilation results in a space-time analysis of the system which is dynamically consistent with the data, the guess and the assumed dynamics of the system in order to build an optimal forecast.

Solutions obtained from each group of methods will be offered to the practitioner for the wide range of resource estimation and forecasting problems faced in estuarine and coastal research. The innovative intent of the project is to bring into this field methods which have proven to be successful in other areas (such as hydrogeology and fisheries for geostatistics, and meteorology and climatology for data assimilation) and to assess which of these techniques are suitable for the estuarine nutrient problem. \r\nFor PIONEER, the Odra and Ebro estuaries will serve as demonstrative case studies to ilustrate the potential of this combined methodology and its transferability to other coastal areas in Europe and world wide. \r\nThe systems developed by PIONEER will include: \r\n- state-of-the-art data assimilation schemes to determine the actual spatialand temporal distribution of nutrients and closely related parameters suchas suspended sediment concentrations and phytoplancton biomass, - dynamical models to forecast temporal and spatial evolutions of nutrientconcentrations and phytoplancton biomass for several days and weeks, - data management systems for long-term storage and fast exchange."@en ; rdfs:label "Preparation, integration of analysis tools for operational forecast of nutrients in European rivers estuaries (PIONEER)"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-02-26"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "2001-09-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "1998-09-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "MAST III"@en ] . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Simon, Meinhard" ; foaf:title "Prof. Dr." . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "NDP Marine Post Doctoral Fellowship funding awarded to Dr. Lorraine Copley in GMIT in association with research into Sealice biology and interactions associated with the Aquaculture Industry in Ireland.\r\nThe development and expansion of expertise in sea lice biology and behaviour is a key requirement to the sustainable development of the aquaculture industry.

The national networks are more focused on bringing together people and practical experience. The thematic networks are more focused on knowledge. The themes are: Multi-functionality, ICZM Participation, Spatial planning, Pollution, Long-term change, Coastal habitat change, Biodiversity change, Coastal Engineering techniques, Observational techniques en Capacity building. For each theme an overview will be produced during the next 3 years on the european status of the existing knowledge. Based on this overview European action-plans will be produced to cover/address the white knowledge gaps. Previously RIKZ from the Netherlands was coordinator of this research-network project. Due to reorganisation, the network is now coordinated by Deltares from the Netherlands."@en ; rdfs:label "ENCORA - European platform for sharing knowledge and experience in coastal science, policy and practice"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-01-29"^^ ; dct:subject , , , ; prov:atLocation , ; prov:endedAtTime "2009-02-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2006-02-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "Part of the FP-6 - Global programme -2004"@en ] . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "PLANES Serge" . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "A long-term study of plankton based on the interannual variability. Through this project, which was initiated in 1988, there has been recorded on a frequent basis (weekly or biweekly), the physicochemical and biological parameters at a coastal station in the eastern Saronikos Gulf (near HCMR installations). The parameters examined are temperature, salinity, chlorophyll, phytoplankton and zooplankton. The main objective of this study is to identify, describe and attempt to explain the variability and succession of plankton on an interannual basis at a coastal area of the NE Mediterranean (Saronikos Gulf). Additional objectives of this study are: (1) To evaluate the biological cycle of the dominant species. (2) To acquire long time-series which, through modelling, will contribute to the description and evaluation of the ecological situation and the forecasting of the secondary production, which constitutes the base of the fish production. (3) To study the long-term interannual variations and evaluate the possible effects of 'global changes' on the communities. (4) To serve as an important means for the control of they general situation of the Saronikos Gulf. (5) This project has already provided valuable results concerning the biological cycle and the physiology to zooplankton.

There is a need for improving the understanding and forecasting of adverse weather in the region. During winter, advection of extremely cold and stable air from the sea-ice/land over the open ocean can lead to intense weather features such as Arctic fronts, polar lows and terrain-induced disturbances. A major impediment for forecasting these features is the sparse network of conventional observations. Polar orbiting satellites cover high latitudes well, and new instrumentation on meteorological satellites provides new and promising sources of information for the Arctic atmosphere. However, satellite observations need to be co-located with other independent observations. The extensive international observational activity planned during IPY offers an unequalled opportunity to address this problem and to conduct intensive research for enhanced understanding and forecasting of Arctic weather extremes.
We propose a Norwegian co-ordination of and contribution to the International Polar Year (IPY) project THORPEX-IPY. THORPEX-IPY is the Arctic component of the international program THORPEX (The Observing System Research and Predictability Program) under the WMO World Weather Research Program. The main objective of THORPEX is to “Accelerate improvements in the accuracy of one-day to two-week high impact weather forecasts for the benefit of society, the economy and the environment” (http://www.wmo.int/thorpex/). This is also one of the nine societal themes in Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). In the Norwegian THORPEX-IPY proposal we aim to significantly improve forecasts of high-impact weather events in the Arctic. This will be done by designated observations including campaigns integrated with the IPY international logistics, exploitation of data and efforts by international collaborators, and by modelling and data assimilation activities, integrated with the international activity in THORPEX and the rest of IPY. Furthermore, we propose to study how climate change may influence the frequency and character of adverse weather events. The Norwegian THORPEX-IPY will leave a legacy in terms of an improved and extended observational network in the Arctic, enhanced exploitation of data from polar orbiting satellites, and improved numerical weather prediction."@en ; rdfs:label "Improved forecasting of adverse weather in the Arctic region – present and future"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-09-25"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "2008-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2008-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "IPY / CCAMLR"@en ] . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "LECORNU Fabrice" . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "

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. \r\nWe 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 , , , ; prov:atLocation , , , ; prov:endedAtTime "2003-12-31"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2001-01-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Pia Lane " . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "STARMER is a program initiated by Japan and France, including several stages.\r\nThe first STARMER project (1987-92) was Japan, France and South Pacific countries cooperative research project on multi-disciplinary studies about rifting activity in the Southwestern Pacific.

Thrirteen participants work together to develop new gears/fishing techniques that have a lower impact on benthic habitats, to quantify the potential reduction of the physical impact as well as the effects on benthic communities, to weigh the socio-economic consequences of these changes against those of alternative management measures, e.g. closing of areas.

\r\n

They do so by focusing on the development of modified towed gears. A generic approach is chosen in which cases (e.g. North Sea, Mediterranean) can be worked out. The overall ecological impact to benthic systems will be assessed by developing physical/biological models verified by tests at sea. This will provide a tool to fisheries managers to identify gear and sediment type combinations which will minimise impact to the habitat.

\r\n

A group of experts will work to appraise the socio-economic consequences of the new gears and techniques. Gear types under study involve: otter trawls, beam trawls and dredges. The project consists of six work packages, as follows:

\r\n

WP 1: Management and co-ordination
WP 2: Modelling and quantification of benthic impact
WP 3: Otter trawl modifications
WP 4: Beam trawl and Dredge modifications
WP 5: Economics
WP 6: Dissemination and implementation

\r\n

The duration of the project is 38 months from 01/02/2006. Special emphasis will be given to consultation with and dissemination of the results of the work to the fishing industry through national Industrial Liaison Groups and an adequate implementation of alternative fishing gears and techniques.

The network will also enhance the development of more sophisticated sensors to measure more complex properties of the oceans. This will allow a greater understanding of the impact of the changing global Ocean and Earth on mankind and ecosystems at large. This has implications for policy makers, production industries (e.g. fisheries, agriculture) service industries (e.g. insurance) and society at large.

\r\nTurkish seas accommodate rich and varied marine ecosystems which are\r\ndiverse in their physical, chemical, biological characteristics as a result of\r\ndifferences in basic driving factors such as the water budget, atmospheric and\r\nland-based inputs, bottom topography, climatic evolution. In terms of primary\r\nproduction potential, the Black Sea especially the northwestern continental\r\nshelf exhibits eutrophic characteristics, while Marmara Sea and its bays are\r\nhighly eutrophic, and Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Seas display\r\noligotrophic structure. Although the Eastern Mediterranean with its rather\r\nunique characteristics is often defined as an ultra-oligotrophic system, there\r\nare significant regional differences within the system The northeastern\r\ncontinental shelf (Mersin and İskenderun Bays) influenced by land-based fresh\r\nwater and nutrient sources and the Rhodes Gyre influenced by ‘upwelling’\r\ndynamics have potential for high primary production, while the open sea is\r\nrelatively poor. Continued research through continuous observations, analyses\r\nand model predictions have immense strategic importance for the well being of\r\nour coastal seas possessing energetic dynamics and rich biological diversity.\r\nIt is proposed that the physical-biochemical variability of the diverse\r\nnorthern Levantine Sea ecosystems be investigated through systematic\r\nobservations during oceanographic cruises, as well as model-based predictions.\r\n

\r\nStudy will be conducted seasonally aboard Research Vessel Bilim-2 of the\r\nInstitute of Marine Sciences of Middle East Technical University in the\r\nreferred areas and stations. In this study, in areas that represent the three\r\ndifferent functional ecosystems, possible structural differences, productivity\r\npotential, and dynamics will be compared in the food chain from bacteria to\r\nfish, and their interactions with the other environmental factors will be\r\ninvestigated. Bacterial and primary productivity rates will be measured at\r\nstations in-situ and present pelagic fish stocks will be tried to assess\r\nacoustically with the aid of a 120 kHz transducer. This study will be the first\r\nin terms of investigation of energy (carbon flux) transfer from bacteria to\r\nfish in our coastal waters with distinct dynamics. Formation of energy in\r\ndifferent ecosystems and their tranfer to upper trophic levels will be\r\nidentified and compared by simple but integrated modeling studies.  \r\n

The objective of this project is to establish a network to promote Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) in the INTERREG III area and to identify future INTERREG III area projects. This project aims to develop a network of community stakeholders with an interest in sustainable management of their local resources. Stakeholders include national and regional authorities, local community interest groups (fishermen, tourist operators, fish farmers, conservationists, property developers, shipping operators, sailors, coastal rescue teams, teachers etc.) CoCoNet aims to: 1. Establish a Network. 2. To facilitate communication between different interest groups. 3. To explore mechanisms to provide coastal communities with a real sense of participation and involvement in the future management of the coastal and marine area. The project will be structured around three workshops held in 2003-2004.

State-of-the-art ocean models will be run for a one-year period to generate a 'proxy ocean' at the highest presently possible resolution and quality of forcing. With the proxy ocean, sampling distances are optimised based on characteristic scales in T/S fields and sampling locations by using local information content. Quality of the various sampling strategies is then tested by using Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) and cost-benefit analysis is performed for these observing networks. \r\n\r\nODON is the first project to perform the full set of optimal design for ocean observing systems in Europe. Integration of the state-of-the-art approaches (sampling, information analysis, OSSE and cost-benefit analysis) for observing system optimisation is innovative. ODON also enhances state-of-the-art in 1) OSSE study by considering synergy among satellite and in-situ platforms in the OSSEs, 2) sampling and information analysis by using one-year proxy ocean. \r\n\r\nMajor ODON deliverables are 3D ocean models with data assimilation, high resolution proxy ocean, quality evaluation and cost-benefit analysis of dozens of Baltic-North Sea T/S observing systems.They have wide implication on marine economy and scientific and technological prospects.\r\n\r\nCurrently there are hundreds of institutions/firms are using 3D ocean models which will be used in ODON.

For the period of the expedition ERS-2 SAR images of the studied area were ordered and obtained.\r\n\r\nDuring the expedition, measurements of the main hydrometeorological and oceanographic parameters were conducted concurrently with ERS-2 SAR imaging. These data are necessary for adequate interpretation of satellite radar images aimed at the retrieval of geophysical information related to experimental investigation of spatial and temporal structure and dynamics of waves, vortices and vortex streets emerging in the atmosphere due to air flows around coastal mountains and leaving their imprints on the sea surface.\r\n\r\nSystematic data were gathered concerning the impact of boundary atmospheric layer stratification on the formation of lee structures in the atmosphere downwind from the coastal ridge.\r\n\r\nOptical imaging of the sea surface near the narrow canyons opening to the sea was performed from the coast at different heights and under strengthening wind. This enabled us to observe the stages of lee structures formation and infer the dependencies of their growth rate and spatial characteristics on wind speed and direction, medium stratification and surface wave strength.\r\n\r\nVortex structures visible from the coast because of numerous slicks on the surface were investigated. They were compared with their signatures in satellite radar images. Such vortices range in size from hundreds meters to several kilometers.\r\n\r\nConsiderable oil pollution of the coast was registered in the end of July. ERS-2 SAR images of July 31 bear signatures typical for oil spills. Therefore, we can with high degree of reliability attribute similar spots seen in other radar images of the same region to oil spills as well. This opens the way to ecological monitoring of the coastal zone from space.\r\n\r\nThe term of the expedition happened to embrace the whole period of the well-known extraordinary weather conditions in the Black Sea coastal zone in August 2002. From the beginning of the month the area was struck by heavy rains and thunderstorms accompanied by multiple tornadoes over the sea, river floods and inundations. Near the site of the expedition dramatic overflow of river Ashamba was registered as well.

The project has started in November 2009 and will last till November 2013.The seas around Europe are home to an exceptionally wide range of marine habitats which must also support a variety of marine industries. The challenge for marine spatial management is to find an optimal balance between the competing demands of economic use, ecological development, and nature conservation while at the same time maintaining sensitivity towards traditional practices. \r\n

\r\nThe EU FP7 project MESMA focuses on marine spatial planning and aims to produce integrated management tools (concepts, models and guidelines) for Monitoring, Evaluation and implementation of Spatially Managed marine Areas, based on European collaboration. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nMESMA is expected to supply innovative methods and integrated strategies for governments, local authorities, stakeholders, and other managerial bodies for planning and decision making at different local, national, and European scales, for sustainable development of European seas. This will comprise an easy accessible data system, containing information on the distribution of marine habitats and species, economic values, and human uses. The main tasks in the project are the development of a generic framework, the testing and evaluation of this framework within several case-studies throughout Europe, and the development of a toolbox to support the dialogue between politicians, stakeholders and the public in general on marine spatial management. This approach makes it possible to compare pressures on an inter-regional level, and at a multi-pressure level for specific regions. \r\n

That may not sound very much, but people living in areas such as Holland or East Anglia are already threatened by coastal erosion. If we are to say how that threat might change in the future we must learn how to forecast changes in sea level. To do this we must understand what is happening to the Earth's great reservoirs of freshwater, and whether or not they are slowly draining into the ocean. The largest of these reservoirs by far is the Antarctic Ice Sheet, which contains 70% of all the freshwater on the planet. At present we do not know whether the ice sheet is growing or shrinking overall, but we do know that some parts of it are getting smaller. The fastest changes are happening at the edge of the ice sheet, where it flows into the sea, in a place called Pine Island Bay. Nobody yet knows what is causing these changes, and their speed has taken scientists by surprise. Pine Island Bay is geographically the far south of the Pacific Ocean, and the image of warmth that this conjures up is not entirely misplaced. The air temperatures never rise above freezing and the coast is battered by storms, but beneath the cold surface of the sea, water temperatures rise as high as 1 degree Celcius. This may seem cold by our standards (sea temperatures around Britain rarely drop into single figures, even in winter), but it is warm enough to melt the ice. Pine Island Glacier is a vast river of ice that flows out into Pine Island Bay. It carries as much water as the River Rhine, but in frozen form. The last 75 km of the Glacier floats on the waters of Pine Island Bay, and the bottom melts so intensely that half of the ice carried in the glacier is lost within the space of 30 years. The other half breaks off the end of the glacier as icebergs, which drift away to melt elsewhere. It is not hard to understand that warm water causes rapid melting, but what do 'warm' and 'rapid' really mean? If we change the water temperature by a small amount, by how much will the melt rate change? To find the answers to those questions we must make measurements of the water temperature beneath the glacier, but to do so is enormously challenging. The glacier is between 300 m and 1 km thick, so we cannot get instruments through from above, while the drifting Antarctic pack ice bars access to the front of the glacier to all but the most powerful ships. Engineers working at the Southampton Oceanography Centre have, over many years, designed and built a solution to this problem in the form of a robotic submarine that they can programme to dive beneath the ice, make measurements along a pre-defined track, then return to the surface with the vital data. By teaming up with American scientists, who can make use of a powerful icebreaker, we hope to take the submarine right up to Pine Island Glacier and launch it on its mission beneath the ice.The underwater cavern beneath the glacier is completely unknown and the submarine must find its own way in and out, avoiding any obstacles that it finds along its path. The Antarctic pack ice is notoriously unpredictable and could prove a huge challenge to the ship. But the potential return makes the risks worthwhile. Armed with our new knowledge we will build a computer model that describes the flow of water within the remote cavern beneath the glacier and in the sea to the north of it. Using this model we will determine if there have been any changes in the water temperature in Pine Island Bay over the past 20 years and how such changes would have affected melting of the glacier base. Other scientists can then use our results to establish if changes in the glacier's melt rate could have caused the ice sheet to thin in the way that has been observed, and together we will be able to say with greater certainty what impact the glaciers of Pine Island Bay will have on the future coastlines of Holland and East Anglia.\r\n"@en ; rdfs:label "Ocean Circulation and Ice Shelf Melting on the Amundsen Sea Continental Shelf"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2018-06-11"^^ ; dct:subject , , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "31/03/2013"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "11/08/2008"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "OBJECTIVES To conceive and develop an information system to hold the geo-referenced marine environmental data collected by IHPT; To develop the visualization tools for efficient data extraction and merging, available on the internal data network; To make metadata and selected datasets publicly available via Internet.

To describe the small-scale atmospheric response three regional climate models will be forced with the large scale 40 years NCEP-reanalysis. The data are provided on a 50 x 50 km grid and will be used in the project to force the wave and ocean models. Circulation models will be used in the North Sea, the NorthEast Atlantic south of UK, including Azores and Canary Islands, the whole of the Mediterranean Sea and the Black and Baltic Seas. Wave models will be used in those areas and also in the Irish Sea. The predictions will be made with a typical horizontal resolution of 10km and temporal resolution of 3 hours. The wave models that will be used in the project are based on the last version of WAM, which will be used with nested grids in order to produce high-resolution information in coastal waters. In the North Sea this model will take into account tidal changes that will influence wave predictions. Altimeter data from ERS1, ERS2 and Topex-Poseidon will be sorted in order to collect the available remote sensed data including wind, wave, sea-level, storm surge and ice-sea measurements for same areas for which hindcasts are being made. Whenever the hindcast and remote sensed data are available they will be compared in order to assess the level of uncertainty involved in using the different type of data.

The report deals with the results of field  research for forecasting of  the beach deformation of the  Black Sea coastal zone in Georgia - Ochamchire (Aphkhazeti), Batumi (Adjara)). The lab modeling  is used to illuminate the process of erosion, as well.  Phenomena that determine the coastal processes are rather diversified. Main reasons for the intensification of erosion is a violation of the natural regime of the coastal zone due to the capture  of coastal material, the construction of hydro technical facilities , and, as a result, breaking of the alongshore sediment flow.

The general objective is the negative effects determination from these areas because of the ports activity and indirectly from the Constanta, Mangalia and Midia-Navodari social-economic activities (waste water running inside the harbors).
\r\nThe achievement of this objective will be carrying out towards next specifically objectives:
\r\n a-marine environment (water, sediments and organisms) physical and chemical parameters determination in the harbors and in the closest areas.
\r\n b-benthos and plankton species determination from the Constanta, Mangalia and Midia harbors and point out the negative effects of ports activity for the organisms’ evolution and dynamic in these areas.
\r\nc-the establishment of the medium term evolution tendency in time and space for biotic components from the studied areas.
\r\n d-paths and solutions identification  for the diminution/elimination of the Constanta, Mangalia and Midia ports activity negative effects towards the Constanta, Mangalia and Midia harbors and closest areas  marine environment.

\r\nIn order to assure self-sufficiency in providing adequate energy for the developing economy and industry, demands for a HydroElectric Power Plants (HEPPs) have become a major issue in Turkey in recent years. Although such plants have been designed to utilize natural resources, they may bear certain threats to the nature as well. Concerns are mostly concentrated on issues like multidamming over a single river bed and their adverse impacts to the river (land) ecosystems. However, almost no attention has been paid by the nation to the possible negative impacts of the plants to marine ecosystems in a country like Turkey, which is surrounded by seas at three sides. Adverse impacts of HydroElectric Power Plants have been experienced near Danube and Nile deltas in the past draining to the Black Sea and the eastern Mediterranean, respectively.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nOutputs of this proposed project may be used as a guide to evaluate possible impacts of HEPPs to marine ecosystems for the first time in Turkey. To achieve this, Goksu river and its drainage area, situated near Silifke (Mersin), have been selected as pilot research areas. Eastern Mediterranean is known as the least productive basin among the world seas in terms of primary production. On its northeastern sector, Mersin and Iskenderun bays form an extraordinaryly productive region due to the substantial amount of freshwater inputs from the local perennial rivers draining to the Çukurova basin. Being located at both ends of the basin, Asi and Göksu rivers make significant contributions to the productivity of the basin waters. In addition to the present Ermenek and Gezende dams, new dams are planned to be constructed along the Göksu river in the near future. This will eventually deplete the riverborne nutrient (nitrogen, phosphorus, silicate) loads necessary for the primary producers (phytoplankton) that form the base of the food chain in the marine environment, as these nutrients will either be consumed or fully sink behind the dam reservoirs. This may further deteriorate the marine food chain extending from bacteria to fish and lead to oligotrophy in the Goksu delta.
\r\n 
\r\nWater samples will be collected from several sites on a monthly basis along the Göksu river to compare changes in the nutrient concentrations & ratios with those of marine origin. In addition, changes in biological, chemical and physical properties of the delta will be compared with those of the peripheral marine stations. Freshwater and nutrient addition experiments will be carried out to understand impacts of freshwater input to the shelf and offshore flora extending from bacteria to phytoplankton. In order to highlight positive impacts of the freshwater inputs to the receiving water masses, in-situ bacterial and primary production experiments will be carried out both in the delta region and at offshore waters. Similar parameters will also be collected from the nearby Akkuyu nuclear power plant outlet area to form initial marine database for further comparisons and evaluations. Monthly river samplings will be realized from the land by the Institutes’ vehicles and seasonal marine surveys will be performed on board R/V Bilim-2 of the IMS-METU.\r\n

This answers some questions asked by the international scientific community about the role played by the Southern Ocean in the regulation of world climate. \r\n\r\nThis model will be based on two models previously developed at MUMM: a sea ice formation model an a model of three-dimensional oceanic circulation. \r\n\r\nThe 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. \r\n\r\nA 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. \r\n\r\nThe 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\r\nwill also be used for lower resolution studies. \r\n\r\nThe 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 results will be available via MUMM's website. \r\n\r\nThe results obtained by this model and principally the currents will interest the other reseach teams involved in the study of marine biology and of biogeochemical cycles in the framework of this programme as well as in the Global Change programme and dispositions will be taken to fulfil their possible requests.

E) to Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station (90º S, 0º E) during 2007-2008 season; and 2) returning by a different route from South Pole to Troll during the 2008-2009 season. The two field seasons will be bracketed by an initial year of remote sensing analyses, data mining, and analysis of an existing
ice core near Troll, and a final year of interpretation and synthesis. Fieldwork conducted during the two traverses will include: 1) collection of three intermediate-depth (~120 m deep)
ice cores and 8 shallow (<40 m) firn cores; 2) near-surface in situ sampling of chemical and isotopic composition; 3) continuous profiling between ice core sites of stratigraphy in the upper ~100 m of the ice sheet using several radar systems; 4) studies of the physical properties of the surface and near-surface firn; 5) the deployment of Automatic Weather Stations (AWS); 6) studies of ice dynamics at ice core sites and along the traverse routes; and 7) physically based modeling of snow-atmosphere processes and interactions.

Field studies were organized with the Turkish and Russian research vessels, which were later, extended to R/V Knorr, a USA vessel.\r\n\r\nAnother important activity of the Project was the development of a Database Management system having a Special DBMS 'OceanBase' with a Web interface to provide effective data management and data exchange with ecosystem models in near real time and/or real time. In conjunction with these activities, the previously set up Black Sea Database has been loaded with new interdisciplinary data from regional and international sources and it contains over than seven million quality controlled data from 28500 stations for the entire Black Sea covering period 1954-2002. A Web interface to the database has been developed and there is an Online Internet access to the historical Black Sea Database on the ODBMS Project Web Site (http://sfp1.ims.metu.edu.tr/odbmsdb).\r\n\r\nThe regional capacity building through the Project is remarkable. Over than 70 young scientists from six Black Sea countries were trained by utilizing the regional and external competence. Regional capacity building extends to up grading the available technical facilities of the riparian countries and purchase of high tech new instruments in order to improved the technical capacity of the collaborating institutions.\r\n\r\nNow a model for the 'Interdisciplinary Studies Integrating the Black Sea Biogeochemistry and Circulation Dynamics' is available. Utilizing this model an overview of the processes responsible from the unique 'suboxic zone' of the Black Sea has been compiled.\r\n\r\nDissemination of the Project activities and Project products was among the important activities. Over than 125 scientists were involved in the Project and the scientific achievements of the ODBMS Project are disseminated in publications, presentations at the international conferences and workshops, books and collected articles, electronic publications, and CD's providing extensive information of the Project.

\r\nThe majority of European lakes, rivers and coastal ecosystems are degraded. EutrophicationEnhanced primary productivity caused by nitrogen and phosphorous,\r\norganic pollution, intense catchment land use and habitat degradation\r\naffect almost all European surface waters. Ecosystem functions have\r\nbeen lost, and many aquatic species have disappeared from entire\r\necoregions.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nRecent European policies target a good ecological\r\nstatus of lakes, rivers and coastal ecosystems. To achieve this, water\r\nbodies need to be assessed by comparison with a quality target and, if\r\nthe quality is below the target, to be restored. For many aquatic\r\necosystem 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.
\r\n
\r\nWISER will support the implementation of the Water Framework DirectiveDirective 2000/60/EC to establish a framework for water policy and management in Europe (WFD) by developing tools for the integrated assessment of the ecological status of European surface waters. 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. Field-sampling campaigns will supplement the data on lakes and coastal systems. The data will be used to test and complement existing assessment schemes with a focus on uncertaintyMeasure of confidence to express the degree to which a result is subject to chance affects on classification strength.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nBiological recovery processes after release from hydromorphological and eutrophicationEnhanced primary productivity caused by nitrogen and phosphorous pressures will be analysed. Therefore, large-scale data will help to identify linkages between pressure variables and organism’s responses. Selected case studies, using a variety of modelling techniques, will address pressure-response relationships and evaluate the efficacy of restorationActivity to improve the status of degraded waters, be it waste water treatment or structural improvements. WISER will provide guidance for the next steps of the intercalibration exercise by comparing different intercalibration approaches.
\r\n
\r\nThe applicability and swift implementation of results will be facilitated by cooperation of project partners and stakeholders from the very beginning of the Collaborative Project. \r\n

\r\nMarine research requires ever increasing amounts of environmental information with better time resolution and longer data series. Traditional methods are not suited to marine ecosystems with slow dynamics. However, when a system can provide continuous data acquisition over longer periods of time, it is possible to detect climate changes as well as singular events. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nOBSEA 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. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe 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. \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe 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 station is connected to the mooring stations 1000m away which is where the marine cable starts its route to the main node, 4km off shore and at a depth of 20m. \r\n

The cruise had two primary scientific targets: The South Scotia Ridge (Responsible: Nevio Zitellini) and the Drift 7 on the Antarctic Peninsula Pacific Margin (Responsible: Michele Rebesco), and approximately 10 days of investigations were dedicated to each of these. The second target (the objective of the MAGICO project) has previously been studied by OGS and others using multi-channel seismics, shallow cores, and ODP- drillings (Sites 1095 and 1096). During the cruise nearly 37,000 km2 of swath bathymetry and about 5,000 km of sub-bottom (CHIRP) profiles were collected across Sediment Drift 7. The data are part of the large data set (including several thousands km of multichannel seismic data) acquired by R/V OGS-Explora between 1995 and 2004 within the projects MAGICO and SEDANO (Sedimentary Drifts of the Antarctic Offshore) funded by PNRA. The analysis of the data conducted in Italy revealed that growth of the drift reflects variations in both Antarctic ice sheet and Southern Ocean alongslope bottom-water (contouritic) currents. The ice sheet transported the sediments to the continental margin, and of flow of contouritic currents controlled their deposition. The understanding of contourite systems and of their sedimentary processes is relevant for paleoclimatic studies and for oil-exploration. Moreover, the discovery of a large field of mud volcanoes with significant active fluid escapes represents the new frontier for research in this margin since the presence of cold-water bioherms coupled to bottom current and fluid escapes may not be ruled out.

Studies measuring total phytoplankton cell lysis showed that the specific lysis rates of the algal community are variable over time and can be very high. The release of the cell content had a structuring impact on total marine pelagic food web by enhancing the activity of the microbial food web. To our knowledge, no comparative studies have been performed on phytoplankton mortality in systems with contrasting trophic status. This is of great importance because of the very different food web structure eutrophic ecosystems have from oligotrophic ecosystems. Moreover, information on the mechanisms behind algal cell death and on the quantitative signficance of the different phytoplankton mortality processes is still largely lacking. There are three main goals in the proposed study: first to elucidate the ecological role of phytoplankton cell lysis in systems along a large trophic gradient. Secondly, to identify and understand the mechanisms controlling phytoplankton mortality. The importance of viral lysis versus autocatalytic cell lysis will be estimated. Thirdly, to comprehend the effects of environmentally relevant variables (nutrient composition and concentration, temperature, light regime) on the different algal mortality processes. The results of this project will largely advance our understanding of the quantitative importance of the various different factors causing phytoplankton cell death. The results are expected to provide new insights into our understanding of phytoplankton cell lysis induced changes in the functioning and structure of marine pelagic food webs and on the global cycling of DOM.

The need for good predictions of coastal ocean response to natural and anthropogenic actions requires observational datasets to provide initial and boundary conditions and time series data on short to long time scales for validation of model predictions. Remote sensing (RS) data play a major roll in providing data for these purposes, both in terms of space and time scales.\r\nThis proposal aims to contribute in an innovative way to explore the synergistic use of multispectral ENVISAT data - Radar Altimeter (RA), AATSR and MERIS - for coastal and oceanographic studies and to evaluate the potential of RA in coastal regions, with special emphasis on data from the RAs onboard ERS and ENVISAT. \r\nThe study area is the North Atlantic region surrounding the Iberian Peninsula (IP). Two study regions will be considered: a larger region (30N Collection of ground truth data, include ship surveys along some of the satellite tracks, close in time to the satellite pass, collecting gravimetry, bathymetry and DGPS data. In collaboration with other projects other types of ground truth data may also be used: SSHs from GPS placed on specific locations along satellite tracks. Comparisons with tide gauge data (mainly Cascais and Leixões) will also be performed.\r\nFrom collected gravity and existing data, a regional geoid model will be computed for the NE Atlantic region surrounding the IP, including the coastal zone. This geoid will be a relevant tool for the computation of the surface currents.\r\nBy assimilating historical data sets of SSH from various RA missions (mainly T/P, Jason-1 and ERS), a 3D ocean circulation model, with a spatial step of the order of 20 km, will be implemented for the NE Atlantic. This will define open boundary conditions for a small scale local model of the west Iberian coastal currents, with a spatial scale of the order of a few km which, in turn, will be able to provide SSHs in the coastal region.\r\nThe ultimate aim of the project is to perform a space/time characterisation of the Portuguese coastal zone in terms of the main ocean circulation patterns (altimetry, geoid), SST (AATSR) and ocean colour (MERIS). \r\nThe derived products for the study region will be: the local geoid, maps of surface currents with a relatively short periodicity (3 - 10 days) and other type of products, to be defined according to specified user needs, useful for various studies such as: evolution of the coast, marine resources and biodiversity, upwelling, sea level evolution, etc."@en ; rdfs:label "POCUS - Study of the Portuguese Oceanic Coastal zone Using remote Sensing data"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-12-09"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "2008-07-01"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2005-07-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "The proposed multi-disciplinary project will focus on the development, validation, and standardisation of reference methods (LC-MS) and cost-effective assays for the identification and quantification of lipophilic marine biotoxins, which have been included in the European legislation, and for which currently no methods exist.

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 "2008-12-05"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:atLocation , ; 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 ] . org:hasMember , . a foaf:Person , prov:Agent ; org:memberOf ; prov:actedOnBehalfOf ; foaf:mbox ; foaf:name "Igor A.

FRontiers in Arctic marine Monitoring

\r\n
\r\n
\r\n

\r\nOur\r\nability to understand the complex interactions of biological, chemical,\r\nphysical, and geological processes in the ocean and on land is still \r\nlimited by the lack of integrative and interdisciplinary observation \r\ninfrastructures. The main purpose of the planned open-ocean \r\ninfrastructure FRAM (FRontiers in Arctic marine Monitoring) is permanent\r\npresence at sea, from surface to depth, for the provision of near \r\nreal-time data on Earth system dynamics, climate variability and \r\necosystem change.\r\n

\r\n

\r\n \r\n

\r\n

\r\nThe\r\nFRAM Ocean Observing System will be installed in the gateway between \r\nthe North Atlantic and the Central Arctic, representing a highly \r\nclimate-sensitive and rapidly changing region of the Earth system. It \r\nwill serve national and international tasks towards a better \r\nunderstanding of the effects of change in ocean circulation, water mass \r\nproperties and sea-ice retreat on Arctic marine ecosystems and their \r\nmain functions and services.\r\n

\r\n

\r\nFRAM will implement existing and next-generation sensors and \r\nobservatory platforms, allowing synchronous observation of relevant \r\nocean variables, as well as the study of physical, chemical and \r\nbiological processes in the water column and at the seafloor. \r\nExperimental and event-triggered platforms will complement observational\r\nplatforms. Products of the infrastructure are continuous long-term \r\ndata with appropriate resolution in space and time, as well as \r\nground-truthing information for ocean models and remote sensing.  \r\n

The study includes an integrated approach combining a \r\nprocess study of Si-release and transfer to the North Sea with the construction \r\nof a policy supporting framework to quantify the effect of land use towards \r\neutrophication remediation. Several national and internationally funded research \r\nprojects and networks focus on the risks of eutrophication posed by excess N \r\nand/or P input into freshwater ecosystems. However, there is until now, no \r\nintegrated research project focusing on the potential role of changes in Si \r\nfluxes in the dynamics of freshwater ecosystems. It is precisely this gap that \r\nthis research project, integrating the know-how of three Belgian research \r\ngroups, attempts to fill. This project aims to answer the question if Si fluxes \r\nthrough a river basin, and ultimately towards the sea, can change because of \r\nland use changes. These changes will be budgeted for the Scheldt basin, taking \r\ninto account surface runoff, subsurface drainage and storage and cycling through \r\nvegetation. The results will be used to evaluate the effect of land use changes \r\nover historical times on Si fluxes. Moreover, it is the aim to formulate \r\nrecommendations towards land planning with respect to the reduction of \r\neutrophication, working from the viewpoint of Si in the nutrient ratios. As \r\nsuch, this study of Si can provide a mirror image for the N and P side of the \r\neutrophication problem, and provide invaluable, new insights in our evolving \r\nconcept of eutrophication. Habitat scale research towards surface erosion and \r\nsubsurface transport of dissolved Si (DSi), and biogenic Si (BSi) and sediments \r\n(as an indicator for transport of mineral Si) will be conducted in different \r\nlandscape types. On a Scheldt basin scale, rivers draining sub-basins, will be \r\nsampled on a regular basis for all BSi and DSi. The sampled sub-basins will \r\nrepresent a gradient from still largely forested to largely covered by cropland \r\nand grassland. The integration of results from both site-specific experiments \r\nand basin scale sampling will for the first time allow an estimate, based on \r\nboth historical and recent land use maps, of the extent to which Si fluxes \r\ntowards the coastal zone have been altered by human land use, and how this \r\nchange has been triggered by changes in erosion processes, changes in vegetation \r\ntype and cover, and hydrology.

On a larger scale, rivers draining individual sub-basins within \r\nthe Scheldt watershed will be sampled on a regular basis for both BSi and DSi. \r\nThe sampled sub-basins will represent a gradient from still largely forested to \r\nlargely cultivated farmland. The integration of results from both site-specific \r\nexperiments and basin scale sampling will allow to estimate, based on both \r\nhistorical and recent land use maps, the extent to which Si fluxes towards the \r\ncoastal zone have been altered by human land use, and how this change has been \r\ntriggered by changes in erosion processes, vegetation and hydrology. Through the \r\ncoupling of experimental results with existing models for sediment transport and \r\nsubsurface hydrology, the results will be extrapolated to the scale of \r\nindividual catchments. The model is then validated by data from a detailed \r\nsurvey of Si and sediment transport in individual river basins throughout the \r\nwhole Scheldt basin.

The project INSEA is focused on the development of integrated management tools for coastal eutrophication assessment combining Models, Satellite Remote Sensing and in situ Measurements. The INSEA specific objectives are:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • Downscaling physics from global to regional models and assimilating remote sensing data. \r\n
  • Improve and develop new tools for real-time in situ measurements.
    Improve and develop new tools for processing and using remote sensing data (from Earth Observation). \r\n
  • Improve and validate the ecological models of the areas under investigation, with especial emphasis for eutrophication related parameters.  \r\n
  • Demonstrate the potential of the combination of Earth Observation data, numerical modeling and in-situ data for assessing eutrophication in coastal areas. \r\n
  • Explore the forecasting capabilities of the modelling system achieved.
\r\n

As result is expected that INSEA will provide innovation in the following areas:

\r\n
    \r\n
  • Assimilation techniques and sub-grid-scale processes knowledge: benefiting from large amounts of data made available by the project. \r\n
  • Modelling & Data Managing Tools: Data acquisition, visualization and analysis. \r\n
  • Management & Decision making: Forecasting capacity & better scenario evaluation and development of indexes.
\r\n

Coastal waters are transitional ecosystems buffered by variable landward-based freshwater input volumes and constituents, influences of oceanic provinces and human disturbances, including nutrient enrichment, superimposed on these natural regimes. Considering coastal systems complexity, associated with highly dynamic spatial (horizontally and vertically) and temporal changes, it becomes obvious that any type of monitoring, either remote sensing or local data acquisition, can only give a brief perspective of the problems in coastal waters and estuaries. Satellite imagery has the capability of describing spatial distribution but, inevitably, short term temporal phenomena (in the range of hours) and vertical processes are impossible to track. On the other hand, local data measurements can show these short time trends but usually are unable to give a clear overview of spatial variation and have high costs. Adding to these different data sources the capabilities of proper modelling tools it provides means to fill the information gaps and make available added value managing tools capable to help to draw diagnostics and perform prognostics.

\r\n

INSEA aims to set-up and validate numerically robust ecological modelling systems in order to describe biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nutrients occurring under different hydrographical and trophic regimes, and to explore the system capabilities in a forecast mode to support coastal zone management issues.

This project aims at the first comprehensive identification and quantification of the individual inorganic and organic compounds that contribute significantly to the nitrogen loading of the air above the Southern North Sea, as a function of the season and wind direction. \r\n\r\n\r\nMethodology\r\n\r\nThe samplings will take place at a short distance from the beach, at a roof location between Den Haan and Wenduine, without any local pollution sources. Additional sample collections will possibly be carried out on board the R/V Belgica and Zeeleeuw. The gas phase is sampled with special denuders; aerosols are taken with filters in a high volume setup and with impactors that allow size differentiation, and rainwater is collected with an automated unit. The classical inorganic analyses (with ion chromatography and electron microprobe analysis) will be complemented with new methodologies to be elaborated for the characterization of the organic components contributing to the nitrogen nutrient fluxes. \r\n\r\nThis combination of frontier methods will allow a yet unseen degree of speciation to be achieved. In contrast to the inorganic analysis, the characterization of organic nutrients is practically a blank field. Extensive chemical pre-separation in combination with powerful chromatographic methods and highly specific detection (?electron capture? and mass spectrometry detection) will be used to achieve the first inventory of the organic nitrogen nutrients in the gas phase and aerosol. The calculation of the ?wet? deposition flux (via the rain water) is rather trivial; for the dry deposition of particles, existing models will be applied that predict the deposition velocity near the sea surface as a function of the particle size; for the dry deposition of gases, existing models will also be applied. The obtained atmospheric fluxes will be compared with the supply of nitrates via the rivers, to evaluate their relative importance, for different seasons and different meteorological conditions. \r\n\r\n"@en ; rdfs:label "Atmospheric Nitrogen input into the North Sea: inorganic and organic nutrient fluxes"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2008-06-02"^^ ; dct:subject , , , , , ; prov:atLocation ; prov:endedAtTime "2006-04-30"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2003-12-15"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "SPSD 2 NS, Global change, ecosystems and biodiversity - North Sea Contracts"@en ] .

The North Atlantic subpolar gyre is a key region for the European climate. The winter heat release from the ocean to the atmosphere contributes to temperate Western Europe winters and the northward heat transport associated to the meridional overturning circulation is characteristic of the present interglacial climate. The North Atlantic Current carries the warm subtropical waters northward. They are progressively cooled and transformed into subpolar waters and eventually reach the formation regions of the North Atlantic Deep Waters in the Labrador and Greenland Seas. \nAt quasi-decadal time scales, different studies show convincing correlations of the ocean circulation and water masses variability with NAO (North Atlantic Oscillation). The NAO index, which is defined as the difference in sea level pressure between Azores and Iceland, exhibits a rich variability spectrum. \nHowever, because the data base is inadequate, the ocean variability on seasonal to interannual time scales is not well documented or understood. It is why, since 2002, the Ovide project contributes to the observation of both the circulation and the water mass properties along a section from Greenland to Portugal.

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.\r\nIn 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. \r\nIt 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.

Europe's coral reefs mostly lie within the Exclusive Economic Zone and are, therefore subject to potential threats from increasing commercial activities in Europe's deeper waters. For the first time, these ecosystems now face the prospect of serious anthropogenic impact. It is likely that the most serious impacts will result from deep-sea trawling which is already operational to depths of at least 2,000 m on the European Margin - spanning the full bathymetric range of deep-water coral (DWC) ecosystems. The second key potential threat is related to the expanding hydrocarbon exploration and production industry that, like deep-water trawling, is already active to depths of at least 2,000 m around Europe and elsewhere worldwide. \r\nThis potential conflict between industry and environment has already caused concern; witness the recent controversial debates between conservationists and industrialists concerning the potentially irreversible damage to reefs. This debate remains unresolved and could present a barrier to future economic development in this sector until sufficient independent research is carried out to: \r\n1) ascertain the potential sensitivities and vulnerability of the coral ecosystem, \r\n2) identify the most significant conservation issues involved, and \r\n3) meet the needs of environmental managers and regulatory authorities by recommending the measures necessary to permit sustainable resource development alongside effective conservation in the vicinity of these enigmatic cold reef communities. \r\n\r\nTherefore, the results obtained through the ACES project will have a strong strategic importance in the future sustainable use of biological offshore resources. Scientific objectives and approach To cover the variation in environmental factors and interactions at ocean boundaries which enable the development of DWC ecosystems in the Northeast Atlantic, the ACES community will focus on five selected key flagship areas along this latitudinal gradient - Galicia Bank, Porcupine Slope, Rockall Trough, Skagerrak, Norwegian Shelf. Our aim is a margin-wide environmental baseline assessment of the status of Europe's deep-water coral margin to provide recommendations for essential monitoring and methodology requirements for future sustainable development. To meet that challenge, ACES will focus on three main scientific objectives that will provide the scientific data necessary to carry out our final objective that is to provide impartial practical recommendations for enlightened management of this spectacular deep-water ecosystem: \r\n1. To map the structural and genetic variability, the framework-constructing potential, and the longevity of DWC ecosystems \r\n2: To assess hydrographic and other local physical forcing factors affecting BBL sediment particle dynamics and POC supply in the vicinity of DWC ecosystems \r\n3: To describe the DWC ecosystem, its dynamics and functioning; investigate coral biology and behaviour and assess coral sensitivity to natural and anthropogenic stressors \r\n4: To assign a sensitivity code, identify the major conservation issues (and increase public awareness), and make recommendations for the sustainable use of the DWC ecosystem."@en ; rdfs:label "Atlantic coral secosystem study"@en ; dbo:projectCoordinator , ; sdn:collate-centre ; dct:language ; dct:modified "2009-02-26"^^ ; dct:subject , ; prov:atLocation , ; prov:endedAtTime "2003-02-28"^^ ; prov:startedAtTime "2000-03-01"^^ ; prov:wasAssociatedWith ; prov:wasInformedBy [ a prov:Activity ; rdfs:label "EESD"@en ] . a prov:Activity , , dbo:ResearchProject ; rdfs:comment "

This project aims to strengthen the existing monitoring programme for shellfish toxins through (i) the elucidation of the source organism of azaspiracids; (ii) the clarification of relative and combined toxicities and the mode of action of analogues of azaspiracids and other lipophilic toxins; and (iii) the sustainable supply of AZA-calibrants in support of international efforts in the validation of quantitative test methods that can be used to refine, reduce and replace animal testing.The project is expected to strengthen the competitive position of the Irish bivalve shellfish industry, based on world-class science and food safety.  It will provide a scientific basis for rationalising the biotoxin monitoring and risk management systems used in Ireland and the EU, thus supporting the sustainable growth of the shellfish industry while maintaining health and protection for shellfish consumers. It is also anticipated that the project will contribute to the strengthening of Irish research capacity through the formation of PhDs, and through exchange visits of scientists to national and international hosting laboratories involved in the project.

 The natural, as well as anthropic, processes in the coastal area represent a high risk factor for the human activities. The vulnerability and the risk over the human communities’ assessment is difficult due to the dynamic nature of the shore. The coastal planning should take into consideration the shore vulnerability to the storms as well as the sea level rise due to the global warming. There are different methods for measuring the beach characteristics, the obtained data being used for elaborating coastal risk maps.
The project has as main objective the study of the beach behavior (through its parameters: slope, sediment grain size, immersed beach width, shore line changes gradient) to the hydrologic factors stress (waves, sea level, etc).
The already existing data together with those obtain during the project will be used for assessing the beach’s vulnerability degree along the Romanian littoral. The data and information will be also used to create a national database which is necessary for further coastal area specific studies or feasibility studies.

The construction of the Suez Canal in 1869 created a connection between the established marine biota of the Mediterranean and Red seas after approximately 20 million years of separation. Since 1964, the term Lessepsian migration, named after the canal’s chief engineer, was given to the  dynamic exchange of marine life between the two seas. After the 1980’s the migration gained momentum and until recently was viewed as biological enrichment of the Mediterranean with little thought given to the effects upon the Mediterranean ecosystem.
\r\nThe sampling was  undertaken with the institute’s RV Lamas 1. Nekton samples were obtained over a one year period during monthly cruises, by using a trawl net sampling hourly at pre-determined depths known for faunal differentiation i.e.0-25m, 25-50m and 50-75m.
\r\nThe von Bertalanffy growth function was calculated for important fish species using the length-frequency parameters obtained following the one year sampling period.

The VLIZ has a total of 1470 sailing hours or 190 sailing days at its disposal every year. The ‘Zeeleeuw’ in principle undertakes journeys during the day between 8h00 and 17h00. Longer trips are possible in exceptional cases. The sailing schedule is drawn up on a three-monthly basis so that we can quickly meet the needs of scientists.

In the Baltic Sea region, aquaculture growth is constrained by concerns about environmental impacts. To realize the full potential of the industry in the region, environmentally sustainable technologies must be developed and applied across the various stages of the aquaculture rearing cycle. Rearing fish in high densities promotes invasion and transmission of pathogens leading to disease outbreaks and reduced survival at the fry stage in particular, causing substantial economic losses to the industry. For fish in marine or brackish aquaculture, vaccines are quite effective against the pathogens they encounter, but for fry stages facing the Flavobacterium pathogens found in freshwater aquaculture, vaccines do not work. Currently these pathogens are controlled with antibiotics but this strategy is flawed with serious concerns about development of bacterial antibiotic resistance as well as its potential transfer to human pathogenic bacteria. Our novel idea for disease management uses natural microbial 'warfare' that is both sustainable and environment-friendly: bacteriophages.

\r\nThe\r\nECO2 project sets out to assess the risks associated with storage of CO2\r\nbelow the seabed. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is regarded as a key\r\ntechnology for the reduction of CO2 emissions from power plants and\r\nother industrial sources at the European and international level. The EU will\r\nhence support a selected portfolio of demonstration projects to promote, at\r\nindustrial scale, the implementation of CCS in Europe.\r\nSeveral of these projects aim to store CO2 below the seabed.\r\nHowever, little is known about the short-term and long-term impacts of CO2\r\nstorage on marine ecosystems even though CO2 has been stored sub-seabed\r\nin the North Sea (Sleipner) for over 14 years and for two year in the Barents Sea (Snøhvit). Against this background, the\r\nproposed ECO2 project will assess the likelihood of leakage and impact of\r\nleakage on marine ecosystems. State-of-the art monitoring techniques will be\r\napplied to detect and quantify the fluxes of formation fluids, natural gas, and\r\nCO2 from storage sites. A best practice guide will be developed for\r\nthe management of sub-seabed CO2 storage sites considering the\r\nprecautionary principle and costs of monitoring and remediation. \r\n
