On June 1, a new project «Innovative solutions for the restoration of the Mediterranean ecosystem through monitoring and decontamination from chemical pollution» was launched, the participants of which are the team of our department.
Due to various external factors, the Mediterranean basin is very vulnerable to chemical accumulation and pollution. The goal of the project is to protect the Mediterranean Sea basin.
This will be realized through a multidimensional framework based on actual data. It will guide policy development and transform public acceptance to reduce emissions and pollution. In addition, next-generation sensors and remediation solutions will be developed to monitor and remove priority chemicals at their source while reducing upstream pollution.
On June 7-8, a Kik-off meeting was held, where all project participants spoke. We talked about our previous experience and discussed plans for the project.
Monitoring water quality in the oceans, particularly oil slicks, is our main task, which we plan to implement using satellite data and neural network models.
