Naples Ecological REsearch Augmented observatory (NEREA)

The augmented observatory NEREA is an initiative aiming to integrate and augment the Marechiara Long Term Ecological Research,(active since 1983) in the Gulf of Naples with moorings, stand-alone seabed platforms, regular short cruises across gradients and question-driven process studies, using both innovative and traditional techniques.

The NEREA project is designed to promote and to apply multidisciplinary approaches, from the sampling strategy to the development of new indicators for ocean health and of new models of the ocean microbiomes.
