The Mediterranean Sea is hosting almost 10% of the total marine biodiversity in spite
of representing less than 1% of the global ocean surface. This regional sea
experiences high anthropogenic pressures, such as growing human population
density along the coasts, urbanization, (over)harvesting of living and raw resources,
extensive maritime traffic, aquaculture, invaders, pollution and eutrophication.
Coastal habitats, their species composition and functioning are deeply altered by
such increasing pressures. Scientific actors are designated as leaders to create new
assessment methods while taking into account the difficulties of financing the
necessary long term and large-scale surveys and monitoring schemes.
In the European Union, Member States are required to abide Marine Strategy
Framework Directive and achieve the “Good Environmental Status” (GES?) in their
regional waters by 2020. To attempt this goal there is a need to develop sound
knowledge on the least studied habitats, particularly those of special ecological,
socio-economic and cultural interest. The main CIGESMED’s objective is to
investigate on the links between natural and anthropogenic pressures and ecosystem
functioning of typical, complex and not so well known, deep sciaphilous habitats built
by calcareous encrusting algae : the so-called coralligenous, under the scope defining
and maintaining the GES of the Mediterranean Sea.
At the regional scale and at the era of massive data production and cloud computing,
one major challenge is to build shared ontologies. Under this scope, providing
common data conception and use within different countries and types of participants
is also one of the current musts.
Ten laboratories from France, Greece and Turkey are participating in the project that
will also involve observers from other Mediterranean countries. CIGESMED partners
are going to develop and organize a framework using data mapping, indexation and
qualification of various data to improve the inter-calibration? and the interoperability of
methods to evaluate the Mediterranean GES and support policies decisions making.
Results and impact of the project will be assessed through the using of open data
and shared tools by the relevant stakeholders.
*CIGESMED is a FP7 EraNet (SeasEra) project.
