Short Biography: 

Priscila Costa Goela joined the Centre for Marine and Environmental Research (CIMA), in University of Algarve, in 2005. As a member of MERIS Validation Team since 2008, she has focused her research on the application of spectrophotometric and chromatographic techniques to the study of the phytoplankton communities and its relation with the optical properties of the water column. Since the beginning of January 2012, PG has been funded by the Portuguese Foundattion for Science and Technology (FCT) for an Erasmus Mundus doctoral programme between the University of Cadiz, Spain and CIMA of the University of Algarve, Portugal.


Centre for Marine and Environmental Research (CIMA)

By nature, CIMA a multi­disciplinary unit that explores the connections between environments, processes and human populations using scientific methods coupled with state­of­the­art modelling techniques. Apart from research, CIMA places a strong emphasis on training and education, as well as providing consultation services, digital applications and scientific information to the scientific and public domains. CIMA activity is focused on 3 general aims: 1. scientific research; 2. training at Masters and PhD level and 3.
