Field surveys & Trainings

Demonstration of innovative instrumentation, data handling and numerical modeling tools will be presented on two Black sea sites- Varna, Bulgaria and Batumi, Georgia.

Each demonstration consist of 2 week trainings including:
-Deployment of the measurement equipment on research vessel platform;
-Preliminary testing and calibration of measurement devices;
-Real-time measurements in marine environment;
-Transfer of data to a land based station (in parallel to recording in data loggers);
-Web-based visualization (in real time);
-Providing input for numerical models;

External researchers and other stakeholders will be invited to participate. Please contact us for more details.

TIMMOD activities at a glance

Group Activity T1

Inventory and promotion of innovative environmental monitoring technologies for assessment of fish stock and non fish living resources. This activity aims at the elaboration of an Inventory of Innovative water monitoring technologies for monitoring of chemical, physical and biological parameters, and assessment of living resources.

Group Activity T2

Assessment and recommendation on advanced hydro-environmental numerical tools for data handling, real-time control and forecasting of marine conditions in the Black Sea. The main aim is to broaden the focus of traditional data processing and numerical modelling approaches by taking into account the holistic perspective in the analysis.
