Proposal for coastal technology platform: PlatLIB


The Balearic Islands have more than 1200 km of coastline and economic activity directly related to the tourist sector and maritime traffic, activities requiring data in almost real time as a basis to guarantee the quality of the coastline and the safety of the sea.

PLATLIB proposes an innovative way to improve knowledge of the coast in line with the most recent international initiatives. The system will allow us to face new research and new scientific and technological approaches to analyse the complexity of interaction between natural multidisciplinary processes that make up the variability of coastal areas. To do that, special emphasis will be placed on both the preservation of the coast and biodiversity, and the analysis of its vulnerability in the face of overall change and modifications related to human action.
