Life SEPOSSO at Giglio Island (Tuscany), Costa Concordia shipwreck monitoring

LIFE SEPOSSO lands to Giglio Island (Northern Tyrrhenian Sea).

Within the activities foreseen in the Monitoring and control plan ISPRA / ARPAT  related to the evaluation of the effects resulting from the sinking of the Costa Concordia ship, on 4-6 July 2018 underwater explorations were carried out by LIFE SEPOSSO divers scientific operators.

The scuba diving survey involved the areas of dead matte in which experimental cuttings have been made using different techniques, in order to determine the best technique for the programming of transplantation actions in the selected areas.

With this survey site, LifeSEPOSSO complements the series of transplantation sites under monitoring, and adds an important source of data that will help define methods and best practices to be followed to increase the efficiency of future transplants.

SETIN is one of the LIFE SEPOSSO’s partners and Ecolinfa members are working on this project.
