Atlantic Blue Ports Newsletter #4

Knowledge of sea water properties in ports is essential to manage the risks of pollution of all types including biological ones ( invasive species ) and to make decisions. One action of Blue Ports is to design and to test enhanced monitoring and modelling facilities in port areas. Water properties and models will also allow the development of a risk assessment tool regarding possible transfers of alien species between ports due to shipping activities.
