Predictive tool for Ostreopsis blooms

Project acronym: M3-HABs
Project title: Risk Monitoring, Modelling and Mitigation of benthic Harmful Algal Blooms along Mediterranean coasts
Thematic cluster: 2. Environmental sustainability
Sub-cluster: Sub-cluster 2.E Integrated coastal zone management
Deliverable: Predictive tool for Ostreopsis blooms
In the framework of M3-HABs project, the Genoa coastline (Ligurian Sea, North-Western Mediterranean) has been selected as the pilot area for developing the Ostreopsis predictive tool, on basis of the long dataset available (since summer 2006) and because of the regular occurrence of blooms in the last years.
