New technology improves our understanding of changes in the marine environment
Existing European observation tools and services have the potential to take advantage of cutting-edge technologies to obtain a wide range of data at a much higher spatial resolution and temporal regularity and duration. The EU-funded NAUTILOS project will develop a new generation of sensors and samplers for physical, chemical and biological essential ocean variables in addition to micro- and nanoplastics. The project will improve our understanding of environmental variations and anthropogenic impacts connected with aquaculture, fisheries and marine litter. NAUTILOS will integrate recently advanced marine technologies into different observing platforms and deploy them through innovative and cost-effective methods in a wide range of key environmental settings and EU policy-related applications. The project aims to complement and expand existing European observation instruments and services and further enable and democratise the monitoring of the marine environment for both traditional and non-traditional data users.
