The work package “Remote sensing” was also highlighted at the Atlantic for Space Workshop.
The iFADO partnership had a broad participation in the Atlantic from Space Workshop, an event organised by The European Space Agency (ESA) at the National Oceanographic Centre, in Southampton (23rd to 25th January 2019).
Muriel Lux (Noveltis) presented her work on marine litter monitoring, an activity included in the project’s work package “Remote sensing” (WP6). Other insights about WP6 were also shown by Prof. Vanda Brotas (FCUL), who presented her work on water quality determination and discussed on future samplings related with WP4 “In situ monitoring”. Finally, our partner from PMBA, Xavier Rebour, performed a general presentation of iFADO during the poster session, which lasted along the event.
The Atlantic from Space Workshop aimed to collect the needs of various users of Earth observation services in the Atlantic Area, in terms of scientific data, applications and data management. A great variety of organizations were represented, namely from academia, research centres, industry and SMEs, national and regional public organizations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
