The PLOME project, led by the University of Girona, with the participation of the ICM-CSIC, the UPC, the UIB, the UPM and the company Iqua Robotics, has tested new technologies that will allow the deployment of stations and vehicles to monitor the marine environment and provide real-time data. The experiments have been conducted along the Catalan coast at depths of up to 350 meters.
- Scientists warn about the severe socio-environmental crisis of purse seine fishing in the north-west of the Mediterranean
This is the main conclusion of a study led by the ICM-CSIC that has applied for the first time a "doughnut" analysis to assess the situation of this activity in the Mediterranean.
A new study by the UB and the ICM-CSIC reveals that the participation of volunteers in citizen science projects is an effective tool to help conserve corals and gorgonians, which are highly threatened in the Mediterranean due to global change.
- 2024 Ocean Decade Conference will showcase science-based solutions for a healthy and resilient ocean
With an expected attendance of 1,500 people, the Conference, which will bring the global ocean community to Barcelona, will feature more than 40 international speakers.
The work, in which the ICM-CSIC participated, was recently been published in the journal Nature Reviews Earth and Environment.
The initiative, coordinated by several CSIC centers, aims to advance the understanding of the combined effect of pollutants and climate change in different marine environments.
