BONUS FUMARI plans the future assessment and monitoring of the Baltic Sea

19-–21 November 2018, Uppsala

The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences organized the kick-off meeting of the BONUS FUMARI project in Uppsala. The aim of the project is to draft a proposal for a renewed monitoring system of the Baltic Sea marine environment.

“Our proposal will be based on a review of the gaps between the monitoring requirements set in the international legislation and the existing monitoring and data management, and on an analysis of the possibilities that novel monitoring methods can offer to marine assessment”, says project coordinator Kristian Meissner from the Finnish Environment Institute.
