Objective

The aim of HABILE is to assess and quantify the environmental conditions required for the formation of identified HAB in three European Large Marine Ecosystem. HABILE's objectives will be achieved through a co-ordinated integrated observational and modelling approach. The project will focus on the analysis of long-term time series (up to 10 years) of in site monitoring and satellite ocean colour data for improved understanding of the conditions of formation of region-specific HAB. The model predictions will under different anthropogenic forcing scenarios be used to assess the impact a reduction of nutrient load may have on HAB occurrence and ecosystem functioning in the Baltic Sea, The North Sea and the Northern Iberian coast. The socio-economic impact of a reduction of HAB events will be assessed for fisheries/aquaculture, tourism, and food industries through a project dedicated industrial/governmental organisation user reference group.
