CleanAtlantic Marine Litter Modelling Workshop
The last CleanAtlantic Workshop was held on the 9th December in Portugal, in the Conference Centre of the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon. The Workshop was focused on Marine Litter Modelling, and particularly on the CleanAtlantic contribution to the numerical modelling of marine litter in the Atlantic Area. Project partners from IST, INTECMAR and USC contributed to the workshop and presented the CleanAtlantic numerical tool developed by IST in collaboration with USC, the CleanAtlantic scenarios, and also the marine litter experience in Galicia.
Other projects such as iFADO, MyCoast, TOPIOS and CleanLICS also joined the workshop and presented other international initiatives developing numerical models for studying marine litter.
The Wokshop concluded with a discussion on how to improve and collaborate in the building of numerical models and a workshop on how to use the CleanAtlantic numerical tool.
