Impact of natural and trawling events on resuspension, dispersion and fate of pollutants (INTERPOL)

Objective

The Mediterranean coastal zones experience intense trawling activity and severe storm surges inducing significant resuspension-release of nutrients, pollutants and toxic elements. Due to their oligotrophic character the resuspension processes are expected to play a key role in the carbon, nutrients and pollutants recycling in the Mediterranean coastal ecosystem. INTERPOL project, bringing together complementary expertise and know-how, in an unprecedented way, will provide new and unique data towards the understanding of the environmental impact of resuspension processes in the Mediterranean coastal ecosystem. It will also help to constrain and to identify the complex routes of pollutants transfer within the marine system. These are important steps towards a better assessment of the marine cycling of natural and anthropogenic substances, including toxic ones, and thus towards a better protection of the Mediterranean from pollution.
