The BRIDGE-BS project activities include
multidisciplinary, process-oriented ship-based and remote-sensing marine smart observation targeting knowledge gaps on
multistressors and Black Sea-specific features as defined in the SRIA.
The basin-wide expedition covering the southern Black Sea was performed by METU in Dec 2022. The number of process-based studies at the Pilot Sites were performed by the respective partners: multiple samples and data for numerous parameters were collected during the organized summer 2022 cruises (PS1, PS3 and PS7), field survey and seasonal monitoring campaign (PS2), as well as monitoring ecological observation (PS4).
This webpage provides the overview of the observations performed by partners in the first 18 months of the project.
