Project Details

Description

Coastal areas are the world’s most populated zones and are changing and growing fast. Anthropic activities and extreme climate events threaten natural areas, communities and settlements. Understanding the environmental status of our coastal and marine environments will support the identification of priority areas in which restoration of natural elements (e.g., algae, wetlands) will further enhance the capacity to counteract both short and long-term climate impacts and carbon sequestration.
The project will elaborate a “high-definition” analysis of the coastal continuum through the employment of UAV technology (drones) to detect environmental issues and map them to enable administration and policymakers to defend our coastal and marine environment.
