“Set-up and implementation of key core components of a regional early-warning system for marine geohazards of risk to the Romanian-Bulgarian Black Sea coastal area”
The Institute of Marine Geology and Geoecology – GeoEcoMar organize Wednesday, 27th of November 2013, starting with 10.00 a.m, in Constanta, Hotel Bulevard, the closure conference of the Romania – Bulgaria Cross Border Cooperation project MARINEGEOHAZARD – “Set-up and implementation of key core components of a regional early-warning system for marine geohazards of risk to the Romanian-Bulgarian Black Sea coastal area”.
MARINGEOHAZARD project achieved the first system of monitoring and real-time warning of marine hazards in the Black Sea.
Bringing together the scientific expertise of Romania and Bulgaria, two centers of monitoring and warning have been accomplished within MARINEGEOHAZARD project, at Constanţa (Romania) and Varna (Bulgaria). Based on a regional system, these are monitoring the western part of the Black Sea. The data stored and processed in the two centers serve to effectively substantiate the management of emergency situations and decision making by the competent authorities, regarding protection of communities, coastal infrastructure, as well as the environment, from the consequences that can be caused by marine hazards.
Data measured by the monitoring networks (Euxinus, for the marine environment, GeoPontica, for the coastal area) also provide, in continuous flow, data extremely necessary for the scientific research of the marine environment.
The project was implemented by the National Research-Development Institute of Marine Geology and Geoecology – GeoEcoMar, as lead partner, along with the following partners: National Institute of Earth Physics (România), Varna Institute of Oceanography (IO-BAS), Bulgaria and Geological Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Science (GI-BAS).
