Periodic Report 1 - HERMIONE (Hotspot Ecosystem Research and Man's Impact on European seas)

Project ID: 226354
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

This is the summary report of the HERMIONE project, funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The HERMIONE project aims at the investigation of ecosystems at critical sites on Europe's deep-ocean margin. It has four major scientific objectives that follow a logical progression from investigating the physical dimensions of ecosystems, to understanding how they function and interconnect, to studying how man impacts them and how HERMIONE can contribute to conserving them.

The report consists of two main parts. In the first part the authors describe briefly the project context and objectives, whereas in the second part, they discuss in more detail the main results achieved so far.
