Final Report - PEARL (Port EnvironmentAl infoRmation colLector)

Project ID: 12290
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final activity report of the PEARL project, an international project co-funded by the European Commission to develop an advanced system delivering meteorological, oceanographic and pollution related data to port authorities. The system is able to combine information coming from in situ sensors with selected Earth Observation (EO) data in an attempt to investigate whether this approach offers an added value to daily port environmental management.

This document presents the profile of European port authorities that was prepared to identify which key environmental parameters could be provided by the exploitation of EO data. This was the first step to ensure the new system is designed to meet the market's needs. It also summarises the feedback from interviees who saw the new system as a valuable step towards the bringing data originating from different sources together in a common and user friendly interface.
