The project has just started in March 2017. It is a Maritimo Project, with different partners from Italy and France. The official website will be on line soon...
Our implication in the project will be to use the Toulon Bay as a unique worksite : it features indeed marine protected areas nearby and dense industrial and navy activity. The main scientific goal for our contribution
will be to develop tools allowing to assess the environmental response to the dynamical forcing of the bay, including contaminant transport and fate.
