How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Seagrasses are undergoing widespread loss due to anthropogenic pressure and climate change. Since 1960, the Mediterranean seascape lost 13–50% of the areal extent of its dominant and endemic seagrass- Posidonia oceanica , which regulates its ecosystem. Many conservation and restoration projects failed due to poor site selection and lack of long-ter...
Funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and launched in November 2018, the WESE-Wave Energy in Southern Europe project aims to improve the current knowledge on environmental impacts of Wave Energy (WE projects) reducing uncertainty in modelling potential impacts of future wave energy large scale devices deployments to better infor...
The emerging marine renewable energy (MRE) industry, also known as ocean energy (mostly wave and tidal energy), yields many unknowns about its potential environmental pressures and impacts. Wave energy converters (WECs) are still perceived by regulators and other stakeholders as risky, particularly for some groups of species and habitats. In many c...
This paper describes an approach for harmonizing historical vector categorical maps with related modern maps. The approach aims at the correction of geometric distortions and semantic disagreements using alignment processes and analysis of thematic coherence. The harmonized version of the map produced by this approach can already be overlaid with o...
MARENDATA (or WESE’s Data Platform) is made of a number of ICT services in order to have: • A single Web access point to relevant data (either produced within the project or by others); • Generation of requests to access data via command line (advanced users); • A dedicated cloud server to store frequently used data or data that may not fit in exis...
MARENDATA platform (or WESE’s Data Platform) is a single Web access point to relevant data (either produced within the project or by others). The single access point was developed according to methodologies presented in D6.4 – Design of the Data Platform. Data made available during the SOWFIA project is already available and WESE’s data will be a...
This report is a Deliverable of the WESE Project As a part of the Data Platform development it was crucial to define its design and how the user will interact with it. This document presents a description of the design and a mock-up which was made available to partners in order to get their opinions on the Design.
Hydrodynamic models usually require the management of large quantities of georeferenced information. GIS can help to prepare, manage, analyze and display these data. This work shows how open-source GIS tools can improve the setup of hydrodynamic models. Hydrodynamics and salinity dynamics of the Guadiana Estuary were simulated using the MOHID syste...
Identifying wildlife corridors using GIS. Wildlife corridors are linear landscape elements that serve as linkages between fragmented habitat areas, promote movement of species and facilitate genetic exchange between fragmented populations. The least-cost connectivity model for focal species was used to identify the best route for wildlife movement...
Is it possible to calculate lake surface temperature (of a coastal lagoon) using Sentinel-2 SWIR band 12 (2200nm, 20m resolution)?
There are also in situ measurements available for calibration.
