Abstract

This article deals with EUROMAR, an umbrella project within the EUREKA initiative. EUROMAR projects aim to develop and apply modern technologies to European seas. They cover a wide range of technologies and approaches, from airborne monitoring of the sea surface to instrumentation for monitoring the sea bed in situ. The following three projects are discussed in detail: (i) SEAWATCH - ocean weather forecast; (ii) MERMAID - protecting coastal waters; (iii) MAROPT - new vision for marine biologists. EUROMAR-MAST cooperation is also outlined and proposals to extend EUROMAR by a further four years are presented.
