The oceanographic campaign MREA18 has just finished. MREA18 is a joint initiative of the Italian Navy Hydrographic Institute (Istituto Idrografico della Marina Militare – IIM), coodinator of the different activities, and some Italian and international research institutes.

On September 19-21, 2018, on board of the hydro-oceanographic ship Aretusa the researchers of some of the most relevant Italian research institutions, such as the CMCC Foundation, University of Bologna, CNR-ISMAR and CMRE, worked together with Naval Officers and experts.

The main objectives of the campaign were to detect and monitor some key chemical-physical parameters of the marine waters while realizing an in-depth analysis of sea currents in the Ligurian Sea aiming at updating the nautical documentation while monitoring climate change impacts on our seas.

The CMCC Foundation has been involved with OPA researchers Rita Lecci, Salvatore Causio and Ivan Federico.
