From multidisciplinary data to integrated information for coastal areas
The H2020 project JERICO-next will organize a Summer School on the use of integrated physical and biological monitoring with novel sensor methods for water management issues such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
The JERICO-next project develops the European network of coastal observatories, including novel sensor methods such as HF radar (for current patterns) and imaging flow cytometry (for phytoplankton functional types and species determination). During this summer school, students will get an introduction and overview on the current state of the art of European coastal observatories and on-going new developments in this field. The new developments include sensor development for a range of ocean variables, the data management and dissemination of large amounts of sensor data, the integration between different types of data and variables and the final use to answer policy questions in coastal waters.
The Summer School will be held from 19-23 June 2017 (Monday – Friday) in a coastal resort near The Hague in the Netherlands. The Sand Motor coastal observatory is close by and will be used for field work in integrated physical and biological monitoring.
