RESMAP-REmote Sensing Monitoring of the Atlantic off Portugal

The REmote Sensing Monitoring of the Atlantic off Portugal RESMAP project (Jan, 2014–Dec, 2018) is funded by the Fundacão para a Cîencia e a Tecnologia (MCTES, PT; Ref. no.: PTDC 2018 IF/00541/2013; exploratory project). The scope is to improve ocean color remote sensing in the Atlantic off Portugal. Study components include the execution Monte Carlo simulations for radiative transfer modeling and the development of regional bio-optical algorithms based on neural networks.

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.
