This month CoastObs turned one year old! This coincided with our 3rd project meeting and 1st review meeting, so we all got to gather in Scotland where we were hosted by our partner The University of Stirling.
The National Research Council - Department of Earth System Science and Environmental Technologies (CNR-DTA) and LOCHS Lab from Stirling University went on a fieldwork campaign for taking water samples of the Adriatic Coast and validate Sentinel 3 data.
Here some sneak peeks of sunny Venice and the water quality monitoring.

On the 9th of April, University of Nantes participated to a meeting organized by Shellfish Farmers (Regional Shellfish Committee) and Fisherman representatives to discuss a field sampling strategy to map wild oyster beds and macroalgae in Bourgneuf Bay, France. With the increase of water temperature, wild oysters progressively colonized intertidal areas, forming dense reefs.
CoastObs, a 3-year EU-H2020 project focused on developing a user-relevant service platform for coastal water monitoring with validated products derived from Earth Observation (EO), was launched on 23-24 November in Wageningen, Netherlands, at the premises of the project coordinator Water Insight.
