ECFAS took part in the recent Copernicus “Biodiversity in Coastal Ecosystems” Workshop that took place online from 11-12 October 2022.
The workshop aimed to demonstrate what Copernicus can offer in relation to biodiversity and coastal ecosystems, and their protection. Numerous products are available across several Copernicus services to describe and monitor various elements related to it, including the effects of climate change, the main driver of global biodiversity loss.
The online event will be split in four sessions designed to discuss user needs, learn from existing experiences, examine what the Sentinels and new EO opportunities could bring, identify which mature areas of science coupled with digital technologies could transition to sustained services, and what industry and business could offer.
ECFAS vice-coordinator and chairman of the ECFAS Users Board, Dr. Andrea Taramelli, took part in the workshop session “Copernicus user needs for biodiversity in coastal areas”, highlighting the potential application of ECFAS to protecting biodiversity and ecosystems in the coastal zone.
