EMBLAS provided data on marine litter to EMODnet

  • April 02, 2018

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) is a network of organisations supported by the EU’s integrated maritime policy. These organisations work together to observe the sea, process the data according to international standards and make that information freely available as interoperable data layers and data products. http://www.emodnet.eu/

In March 2018 the first EMODnet Chemistry maps on Marine Litter were just released, where, among others, beach marine litter collected by Tbilisi State University (partner in EMODnet III) and S/R Firm “GAMMA” during joint expeditions conducted in recent years within “EMBLAS I/II” has been introduced.
