Work package 5 (WP5) is devoted to the development of innovative tools useful in marine monitoring, including both instrumental and methodological approaches. WP5 aims to improve our understanding of ecosystem functioning and biodiversity changes at the different levels of biological organization (from microbes to vertebrates). A special emphasis is given to the development of novel approaches that enable a better performance of monitoring by expanding spatial and/or temporal analyses, and by automatically measuring the metabolic rates or physiological performance of key groups.

During the first 18 months, WP5 partners have worked to evaluate the use of a variety of methods to monitor physicochemical and biological parameters. Partners involved in this WP are called to present their results on the application of innovative monitoring techniques. Furthermore,the call is extended to those partners from other WPs interested in assisting to the workshop.

The workshop will take place at the Institut de Ciències del Mar in Barcelona on 13-14 October. The programme includes talks by our guest speakers followed by talks to be presented by the participants. The meeting will start on 13th of October around noon to allow partners to arrive in Barcelona the same day. The meeting will finish in the afternoon of the 14th October.

Guests speakers are:

  • Ramiro Logares, ICM-CSIC
  • Anders Lanzén, Neiker-Tecnalia
  • Naiara Rodriguez-Ezpeleta, AZTI-Tecnalia
  • Shinichi Sunagawa, EMBL
