On March 11, 2019, was held the final workshop of the MARINFO project, which began in January 2016. The location of the final MARINFO workshop was the cruise terminal at the port of Leixões. Most speakers and present spend much of their time at sea or study marine processes and ecosystems so having the Atlantic Ocean as a background could not be more appropriate.

In this workshop, the various partners involved (CIIMAR, CIBIO and LSTS) presented the results of the project and there was also the intervention of 3 invited speakers: Michael Elliott of the University of Hull (UK) and Andrea Munafò of the National Oceanography Center (UK).

From a scientific point of view, coastal waters are particularly interesting due to their heterogeneous characteristics influenced by factors such as currents, wind and fresh water runoff. However, such environment is also a challenge to study due to its dynamic spatiotemporal variation.

In the article “Toward adaptive robotic sampling of phytoplankton in the coastal ocean” NTNU researchers present methods and results from field experiments using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with embedded algorithms that focus sampling on features in three dimensions.

O projecto OMARE visa criar um sistema integrado de informação e monitorização da biodiversidade marinha do Parque Natural do Litoral Norte, cujo objetivo geral será o fornecimento regular de informação sobre o estado da biodiversidade. Neste âmbito, e tendo em vista estudar os tipos de habitats marinhos que podem ser encontrados no parque, o ISR foi contratado para fazer levantamentos geomorfológicos do fundo marinho e das zonas costeiras com recurso a veículos não tripulados.

Last November, Laboratório de Sistemas e Tecnologias Subaquáticas and Instituto de Arqueologia e Paleociências (IAP) have participated in an archeological expedition in the United Arab Emirates. We used two LAUV vehicles and a multicopter to locate wrecks in the coast of Sharjah. This team is also part of Um Mergulho Na História, a collaboration for locating and studying wrecks in coastal Alentejo.
