Innovative modelling approaches for predicting Socio-environMentAl evolution in highly anthRopized coasTal LAGOONs

Project description

New tool to monitor Europe’s lagoons

Lagoons represent 5 % of the shoreline in Europe. Separated from the ocean by a barrier, coastal lagoons are shallow waterbodies connected at least intermittently to the ocean by one or more restricted inlets. They are also vulnerable to climatic and anthropogenic pressures, such as intensive agriculture and extensive urbanisation, namely because of expanding tourism. The EU-funded SMARTLAGOON project will develop a tool to enable real-time monitoring, analysis and effective management of these vulnerable areas. It will focus on Europe’s largest saltwater coastal lagoon, Mar Menor. Located in the Iberian Peninsula, in the south-east of the Autonomous Community of Murcia, Spain, near Cartagena, the area has been suffering environmental degradation due to socio-environmental reasons.
