The EXCELSIOR project (www.excelsior2020.eu) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 857510 and from the Government of the Republic of Cyprus through the Directorate General for the European Programmes, Coordination and Development. The EXCELSIOR project aims to upgrade...

This paper presents how the EXSELSIOR H2020 Teaming project will support the management and monitoring of the cultural heritage domain through its research and innovation agenda within the Eastern Mediterranean, Middle East, and North Africa (region known as EMMENA). The pressing need for protecting the cultural heritage assets is highlighted throu...
Chapter
Amathus archaeological site is one of the most important monuments (memorials), which remains for up to 2300 years. Last decades, archaeological sites, face anthropogenic and natural disturbances. One of those is the land movements that come from landslides or earthquakes. Improved remote-sensing techniques and new data more contemporary can assist...

An important population of the endemic Mediterranean fan mussel Pinna nobilis thrives in the marine protected area of the Gera Gulf (Lesvos island, northeastern Aegean Sea, Greece), and was assessed for the first time. To estimate the abundance, spatial distribution and habitat use of fan mussels in the Gera Gulf, a distance sampling underwater sur...
Conference Paper
Seagrass meadows play a vital role in coastal ecosystems health as constitute an important pillar of the coastal environment. So far, regional scale habitat mapping was implemented with the use of freely available medium scale satellite images (Sentinel-2 or Landsat-8). The Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have increase the spatial resolution of the o...
Article
Seagrass meadows are among the most valuable coastal ecosystems on earth due to their structural and functional roles in the coastal environment. This study demonstrates remote sensing's capacity to produce seagrass distribution maps on a regional scale. The seagrass coverage maps provided here describe and quantify for the first time the extent an...
Conference Paper
The significance of coastal habitat mapping lies in the need to prevent from anthropogenic interventions and other factors. Until 2015, Landsat-8 (30m) imagery were used as medium spatial resolution satellite imagery. So far, Sentinel-2 satellite imagery is very useful for more detailed regional scale mapping. However, the use of high resolution or...
