Participation in Projects:

RAIA : Oceanic Observatory of Iberian Margin (2009-2011)
  • This is a large project, whose main goal consist in the implementation of a network of oceanic observations, that allows to consolidate operational oceanography in the western iberian margin, and generates new scientific and technological oportunities. The participación of the CESAM consist in develop higgh resolución numerical models of the ocean circulation, to develop a biogeochemical module, and to apply a lagrangian module to study, from the operational point of view, the dispersion of larvae of mytillus, and other species.
  • HERMIONE – Hotspot Ecosystem Research and Man’s Impact on European Seas, (2009-2012)
  • The main objectives are: To investigathe the dimension, distribtion and interconnection of deep-sea ecosystems; To understand changes in deep-sea ecosystems related to key factors including climate change, human impacts and the impact of large-scale episodic events; To understand the biological capacities and specific adaptations of deep-sea organisms, and investigate the importance of biodiversity in the functioning of deep-water ecosystems; To provide stakeholders and policy-makers with scientific knowledge to support deep-sea governance aimed at the sustainable management of resources and the conservation of ecosystems.
