JellyFor

JELLYFOR (Eurostars: 2009-2011) TechWorks Marine were key contributors of an Earth Observation project to develop a jellyfish forecasting tool. The project, JELLYFOR, was supported by the EU and the European Space Agency (ESA). The aim was to develop a new service to forecast the jellyfish occurrence for a given salinity, temperature and chlorophyll-a. JellyFor integrated optical satellite data, forecasting algorithms and in-situ measurements on a GIS prototype platform. TechWorks Marine were responsible for in-situ monitoring programme, and provision of validation and training data. Partners include:

  • Starlab
  • Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (MUMM)
