MULTICOLOR-1: The multicoloured North Sea: chlorophyll a, pheophytin a and suspended solids concentations (1997-1998)
Contact: Beheerseenheid Mathematisch Model Noordzee en Schelde-estuarium (IRScNB/KBIN-BMM), more

Description
The main goals of the project are to take advantage of the information available from ocean colour remote sensing satellites, to calibrate them in function of the specificities of the belgian coastal waters, to use them in conjunction with biological models, and so to bring in elements of scientific answers to the debate held between riparian North Sea states about eutrophication problems, their geographical extension and the actions that have to be taken. more
