We aim to identify important ecological functions and ecosystem services provided by the Gialova Lagoon and how these contribute to different stakeholders’ livelihoods and wellbeing in the area.

How do human activities in the area, such as agriculture and tourism, affect the Gialova Lagoon and associated ecosystems?

Main aim of the research is to identify, through participatory research, opportunities for designing a multifunctional landscape with enhanced sustainability and climate change resilience

Part of this work includes water monitoring and monitoring of birds in the Gialova wetland

- 5 monitoring stations equipped with water temperature/ conductivity/ depth sensors

- 1 meteorological station equipped with temperature/ wind speed-direction/ RH and precipitation

As part of the wider investigations into the environmental status of the lagoon, water quality and the hydrology of the catchment, remote sensing research has being also initiated recently at NEO.
