MAREBASSE [Project info]   [Back]
The -Marebasse- research project is essentially meant to set-up an integrated assessment framework for marine aggregates. This framework is regarded important to answer management/policy questions on how a sustainable exploitation of marine resources should be viewed and what approaches should be envisaged. This implies that essentially an increase of knowledge is necessary on the level of the sediments themselves and their distribution, but also on the dynamical environment. The project is structured around a three-tiered approach encompassing three spatial scales: broad-based, regional and site-specific. Fieldwork programmes are the focal point of the regional and site-specific research, however with a coupling towards the broad-based approach.
