RedMarLitter (BSB552) – Innovative Database for Marine Litter Pollution

24/09/2019

On 25 September 2019, an innovative online platform providing data on the Black Sea currents and marine litter pollution will be presented at the Flora Exposition Center in Burgas. The platform is designed so that data can be added to it by both scientific organizations and individual citizens who have monitored the waste. The system will enable the marine litter pollution to be tracked in a more complete and accessible way and will support both the research in the area and volunteering for the Black Sea.

The platform was developed by the team of the project “Innovative techniques and methods for reducing marine litter in the Black Sea coastal areas” (BSB552, RedMarLitter), leaded by Via Pontica Foundation, in partnership with the Municipality of Burgas and two universities: “Ovidius” from Constanta, Romania and Tbilisi State University, Georgia. For the moment, the platform covers data from the three countries but it is expected to be supplemented by data from other Black Sea countries.

The online database will be introduced during the second monitoring meeting of project which will be held during 24-26 September 2019.

In addition to the ongoing project procedures, representatives from all stakeholder groups will have the opportunity to participate in a monitoring campaign. In line with the current non-standard approach on 25 September 2019 starting at 10 a.m. on the beach north of Burgas Salt Lakes, in collaboration with the Naval Academy “N. Y. Vaptsarov” will be demonstrated on-site work and presentation of techniques and methods of conducting a monitoring campaign.

The event will continue with a presentation panel at the Flora Exhibition Center, Burgas, where in open discussions the experts and partners will have the opportunity to exchange knowledges in connection with the progress of the planned activities and the presentation of the created computer-based platform for marine waste monitoring.
