Abstract

The experience from the implementation of the European node of the CoML project NaGISA (Natural Geography in Shore Areas) in the Aegean Sea by HCMR is presented. NaGISA aims at the long-term monitoring of coastal areas, focusing on the intertidal and sub tidal area down to 20 m, including assessment, non-destructive and destructive sampling. Preliminary results after six years of implementation are presented, along with the development of sampling devices designed and utilized by HCMR for the purpose of the project.
