Hot-spot pollution in the Mediterranean

Partners involved
CNR, IJS, ISPRA

Use case description
This task aims to have a nest of the EGIDA methodology on hot-spot pollution in the Mediterranean. The CNR-IIA is coordinating the WP on chemical pollution in the Mediterranean under the KnowSeas project, in which temporal trends for key drivers are being observed through main socio-economic indicators in shipping and land-based industrial sources of pollution. To this end, available data from regional and national monitoring networks are collected and integrated in a database. With the above in mind, the active engagement and incorporation of science and technology community to the development of GEOSS through the implementation of a SDI, and transfer of knowledge to national research systems would be strategic.
