This service will improve the assessment, in the fisheries field, associated with the impact of surface currents on exploited species such as sardines, anchovies and shrimp.
These are 3-year grants aimed at hiring young researchers, which the ICM has now been able to access for the first time thanks to the acquisition, last year, of the Severo Ochoa Excellence Award.
Did you know that there are also submarine canyons? And that these structures are not only found on Earth, but also on other planets? Their evolution depends on climatic conditions and, in the sea, their study begins with the analysis of bathymetric data.
Based on isotope analysis, a team of scientists from the ICM, the IEO and the ULPGC has demonstrated, for the first time, the importance of microbes in the entire marine food chain.
This new approach developed by the ICM, the IEO and JAMSTEC represents, for the first time, the adaptive evolution of phytoplankton to climate change and will help to improve predictions of its response to upcoming changes.
- The TRANSMOW campaign will analyse the circulation of the Mediterranean outgoing waters around the Iberian Peninsula
The campaign, in which the ICM, the UTM and the UB are involved, will study the geochemical signal of the waters that are formed in the Mediterranean and exported to the Atlantic through the Strait of Gibraltar to assess their sensitivity to climatic oscillations.
