The Mediterranean Sea is a world of impressive diversity where ocean sunfish and whales live side by side, and colourful corals provide a home for smaller creatures. But human beings have left their mark here for thousands of years: ancient shipwrecks and fighter planes from the Second World War litter the ocean floor, while until recently raw sewage was fed straight into the sea. The impact has been devastating – today the Mediterranean is an ecosystem on the edge. But there is a glimmer of hope as measures to protect the sea from pollution and excessive disturbance are being put into place. Sandrine Ruiton from the University of Marseille specialises in research on artificial reefs to build up the lost marine biodiversity near cities like Marseille, one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. Until recently it was responsible for seriously polluting the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. Christian Petron himself has been instrumental in raising awareness of this ecosystem in dire straights. His own 30-year-old archive footage shows the extent of the pollution in graphic detail. Both Sandrine Ruiton and Christian are involved in the hugely successful ‘Prado Reef 2006’ project, which is designed to repopulate the local waters by encouraging the colonisation of new reefs. Even old shipwrecks and fighter planes turned into artificial reefs and first indications offer grounds for cautious optimism. But to be able to accurately assess the success of these artificial reefs, detailed population counts are absolutely essential. But their accuracy is questionable when carried out by divers with conventional equipment – reef creatures are notoriously shy and many are likely to hide at the approach of a noisy diver. So Sandrine Ruiton wants to find out if Frederic can achieve more accurate population counts on these fragile reefs by being less intrusive. His ability to move and behave almost like a fish without any cumbersome diving equipment allows him closer access without frightening the wildlife off. His first destination is the wreck of an freighter, sunk after world-war 2, closely followed and observed by Christian Petron. The collection of creatures found here are delicate and extremely cautious. But this dive also poses real challenges for Fred: diving in a wreck brings particular dangers with it, especially for a freediver. Nevertheless, he is determined to press on with his attempt to evaluate the state of Mediterranean marine wildlife. The artificial reef population surveys are only part of the reason why Frederic has come to the Mediterranean. He also works together with Dr. Pierre Chevaldonne, a scientist at the ‘Station Marine D’Endoume/Marseille’. Both are interested in an underwater cave that could be invaluable to modern science. Organisms and animals that are usually associated with much deeper waters thrive in this deep dark cave. In particular a collection of sponges could be of interest, not just because they provide an endless supply of biomarkers that are very sensitive to environmental changes: they are also highly relevant for modern medicine. Sponges are known to provide AZT (Azido-Thymidin) – currently one of the most used medications for the treatment of AIDS and in the fight against cancer. The sponges generate these substances as dangerous chemical weapons against predators or as a defence against harmful bacteria. The research team is renowned for their work on sponges, but the breathing bubbles emitted by conventional drivers would collect at the cave ceiling and gradually kill the cave dwellers. But Frederic’s approach is very different. By holding his breath, he can ensure that the sponges and other cave organisms are not threatened. He is able to explore the cave in detail and report his findings and bring samples back to the research group. This research can provide ground-breaking insights into modern medicine, as well as giving an indication of the health of the Mediterranean waters by examining the sponges’ biomarkers. Together, Frederic’s involvement in the artificial reef projects as well as the underwater cave exploration are extremely valuable contributions to the quest to document and protect the diversity of Mediterranean marine wildlife. He is in a unique position to access and approach the wildlife, that cannot be replicated by using conventional diving methods, and as such is an incredible opportunity for the scientists to gain a new window to the underwater life of the Mediterranean.

But in 1950, the Soviets diverted the two rivers that fed it in order to irrigate fields and grow cotton. Little by little, the Aral Sea dried up, ruining thousands of livelihoods. Since the construction of a dam in 2005, the water is slowly beginning to rise, and with it residents' hopes.

Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews It took just 40 years for the Aral Sea to dry up. Fishing ports suddenly found themselves in a desert. But in one small part of the sea, water is returning. Latest satellite pictures reveal that 90% of the Aral Sea has dried up, forming a new desert between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia. It's a man-made environmental disaster. As part of the BBC's Richer World Season, Rustam Qobil visits the Aral Sea, a toxic desert sea bed, and talks to people who have lost their sea, health and loved ones.

http://www.euronews.com/ What do microscopic molecules and huge computer grids have in common? They both build up giant scientific databases of ecosystems around the World. But it is a tricky process. This is the story of how researchers around the Black Sea are struggling to get the bigger picture out of tiny details. On the shores of the Danube River there is an unusual team. Romanian and Ukranian scientists are embarking on a common research trip. They are assessing the hydrological and biological health of the Danube Delta, a huge Biosphere Reserve shared by both countries. The news is good. "Algae blooming is decreasing. And lately we have seen the development of some aquatic species that are biological indicators of a better quality of the water around here," explains Jenica Hanganu, Ecologist of the Danube Delta Research Institute. Less industrial discharges and more efficient water treatment plants are indeed improving water quality in the Danube Delta. But the region is facing other challenges. Iulian Michersu, Geographer with the Danube Delta Research Institute says: "The Danube has now many dams and dikes. That means that the Delta is narrower and the river is getting deeper, and that affects the biodiversity of the whole area. Oaks that used to grow on the shores are retreating, because the river flow is becoming much more vertical than horizontal and it offers less ground." Challenges are similar on the Delta's Ukranian side. The river's own environmental patterns are no respecter of the political borders. "The main problem on the Ukranian side of the Delta is dramatic high water levels caused by floods. Also, the construction of dams along the Danube has caused difficulties in the water exchanges between the river and the adjacent lakes - that leads to the ecological exhaustion of these basins," points out Mikhail Kornilov, Hydrologist with the Danube Hydrometeorological Observatory. Water samples, zooplancton and sediments gathered during the research cruise are then taken to labs for further analysis. Here again the news is encouraging as Liliana Teodorof, chemist with the Danube Delta Research Institute explains: "Over the last few years, we have indeed seen a decrease in the concentrations of heavy metals like cadmium, zinc and lead. These heavy metals, originating from industry and agricultural sources, are still present, but their incidence is retreating both in the sediments and in the water of the Danube Delta". This chemical, atmospheric, microbiological and zoological data gathering is regularly performed on the Danube Delta. But the results are not kept in a lab's drawer. Instead, all this data is flying high. In Geneva, environmental data from around the Black Sea basin, including the Danube Delta, is being used to elaborate interactive maps and databases for the sake of busy researchers. "They say that we researchers lose 50 percent of our time, if not more, sifting through all the scientific data. And often it arrives here in very different formats, with qualities which are also very different. So we have to transform the data to be compatible with the software we use," explains Gregory Giuliani, Environmental scientist, with the University of Geneva. The whole Black Sea basin is 2.2 million square kilometres, which means a deluge of daily data to be processed. So scientists from a European Union research project needed a helping hand in the form of Grid computing. Nicolas Ray a biologist at the University of Geneva, with the help of a map full of dots explains: "Each of these points represents a University or other computing centre that provides us with tens, hundreds or thousands of computers. So we have access to some of this computing grid that allows us to send our simulations on multiple computers simultaneously and thus shorten the total computation time for our hydrological model." Researchers have so far developed computer models for soil uses, demography and hydrological data - like water flows or level of pesticides - in the Black Sea basin, shared by 20 countries. And all is provided in formats adapted to different platforms. "Here we see the same example, it is stored in our system and, in one click, I can see it on Google Earth. Potentially I can also take it on a smartphone or tablet, I can see exactly the same data, and we're going to immediately start working, and thus spend more time doing the analysis of what we have been given or understand the phenomena instead of wasting time looking for information," says Gregory Giuliani an environmental scientist at the University of Geneva.

The Aqualog moored profiling carrier collects regular time series of vertical profiles of ocean environmental data at a fixed geographic position over extended periods of time. http://www.aqualog.pro The profiler is equipped with conventional oceanographic probes and makes repeated round trips up and down a taut mooring wire between the subsurface flotation and the anchor while maintaining a stable orientation with respect to the current direction. When compared to traditional moorings, which use multiple instruments at fixed depths, the profiler acts as a lift for a single set of third-party sensors thus increasing the vertical resolution of the data while decreasing operational costs and optimizing value. Applications: operational oceanography, global change climate research, environmental monitoring, polar oceanography.

The Russian Navy gave journalists an onboard tour of the Udaloy-class anti-submarine destroyer that has been deployed to the Syrian port of Latakia to assist other Russian warships in their Mediterranean mission. The Vice-Admiral Kulakov is one of eight frigates of its class currently in service in the Russian Navy. Its main purpose is to detect and destroy enemy submarines, meaning its current Syrian deployment is in more of a supporting role. While guarding the Russian flotilla off Latakia, the ship detected and tracked several foreign submarines on reconnaissance missions off the Syrian coast, but was not engaged in combat missions. The Vice-Admiral Kulakov's search and rescue helicopter, a Kamov Ka-27PS, is ready to respond to emergencies on the seas. The operation in Syria has became a turning point for the military's public relations. The latest tour is one of a series in which the Russian military has invited journalists from Russian and foreign media outlets to high-security facilities. Earlier, the media were allowed to visit the Khmeimim airbase south of Latakia, from which Russian warplanes fly sorties, and the Moskva missile destroyer, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet. Unlike most of the Russian Navy ships involved in the Syrian operation, which belong to the Black Sea Fleet, the Vice-Admiral Kulakov is based with the North Fleet in Severomorsk. Mixing ships from different fleets is a common practice aimed at building cross-fleet cooperation and fostering ties between officers and sailors. The warship left its home base four months ago and started its mission off the Syrian coast in December.

Naib Laksamana Kulakov adalah satu daripada 8 kapal frigat kelas pada masa ini perkhidmatan dalam Tentera Laut Rusia. Tujuan utamanya adalah untuk mengesan dan memusnahkan kapal selam musuh, bermakna penggunaan semasanya Syria adalah dalam lebih daripada peranan sokongan. Walaupun menjaga armada Rusia di luar Latakia, kapal itu dikesan dan dikesan beberapa kapal selam asing dalam misi peninjauan di luar pantai Syria, tetapi tidak terlibat dalam misi pertempuran. Laksamana Madya Mencari dan menyelamat Kulakov helikopter, Kamov Ka-27PS, bersedia untuk bertindak balas terhadap kecemasan di laut. Operasi di Syria telah menjadi titik perubahan bagi perhubungan tentera awam. Lawatan terbaru adalah salah satu daripada siri di mana tentera Rusia telah menjemput wartawan dari media Rusia dan asing ke tempat-tempat keselamatan yang tinggi. Terdahulu, media dibenarkan untuk melawat pangkalan udara Khmeimim selatan Latakia, yang pesawat perang Rusia terbang sorties, dan Moskva peluru berpandu pemusnah, perdana Armada Laut Hitam. Tidak seperti kebanyakan kapal-kapal Tentera Laut Rusia yang terlibat dalam operasi Syria, yang tergolong dalam Armada Laut Hitam, Naib Laksamana Kulakov adalah berdasarkan dengan Armada Utara di Murmansk. Mencampurkan kapal-kapal dari armada yang berbeza adalah amalan biasa yang bertujuan untuk membina kerjasama rentas armada dan memupuk hubungan antara pegawai dan kelasi. Kapal perang meninggalkan pangkalannya 4 bulan yang lalu dan memulakan misinya di luar pantai Syria pada bulan Disember.

"International Black Sea Action Day" is a regional event designed to help all Black Sea communities and people to celebrate their shared Black Sea environment and includes the countries of Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, Georgia, Bulgaria and Romania. "International Black Sea Action Day" has been celebrated every year since the Strategic Action Plan for the Protection of the Black Sea, which was signed on 31 October 1996, but 2006 was the first time that a truly regional communications strategy was introduced. The project of celebrating the International Black Sea Action Day" has now established a strong foundation for working closely with government, NGOs and private partners to promote greater awareness and action to protect the Black Sea environment. What is the objective? The objective of Black Sea Day is to make audiences aware of the main environmental problems of the Black Sea and to point out how to address these problems by individual action and by the strengthening of water governance institutions. Almost one third of the entire land area of continental Europe drains into the Black Sea. It is an area which includes the major ports of seventeen countries, thirteen capital cities and some 160 million persons, but its only connection to the world's oceans and seas is through the Bosphorus Straits. The decomposition of phosphorus and nitrogen from the river's basins that discharge into the Black Sea has created the largest anoxic basin of the world. In addition, different sources of pollution such as untreated urban water discharge and coastal development have dramatically affected this environment during the last decades. In order to contribute to the recovery of the Black Sea, the related Every Drop Matters Project promotes the sustainable use of natural resources through the coordination of an educational and capacity building program in the Black Sea countries. What is the objective? The expected impact of the project is to increase the awareness of the school kids on environmental matters pertaining to the Black Sea ecosystems by reaching 2 million school kids aged between 9-12 in the six Black Sea countries; increase the capacity of their teachers through the creation of a Teacher's Guide and create the sustainability of the project through the endorsement of the Ministries of Education of the respective countries.

Mega project Canal Istanbul with English dubbing. Crazy Project Canal Istanbul Kanal Istanbul is the Turkish project name of the artificial sea-level waterway, which is being built by the Republic of Turkey on the European side of Turkey, connecting the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, and hence to the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. Kanal İstanbul would bisect the current European side of Istanbul and thus form an island between the continents of Asia and Europe (the island would have a shoreline with the Black Sea, Sea of Marmara, the new canal and the Bosphorus). The new waterway would bypass the current Bosphorus. Kanal İstanbul aims to minimise shipping traffic in the Istanbul Strait. The project is intended for the 100th anniversary in 2023 of the foundation of the Turkish Republic.

Sunday, May 6th 2015 A platoon sized unit of the 1st Mercian regiment of the British Army arrive on the island of Panthera in the black sea. Officially they are there for training in a mediterranean environment. Un-officially they are there incase the Russian armed forces decide to mount any kind of offensive into the theatre. Monday, May 7th 2015 БДК-64, a amphibious assault ship of the Russian navy closes to within 5KM of the island, a flight of F-18’s is scrambled from USS Dwight D Eisenhower, the craft ignores all hails and refuses to stop. The order is given to destroy the ship if it makes landfall. When the ship is less than 1KM from the coast a flight of Russian SU-35’s enters the Black sea theatre from Ukraine. The F-18 flight is caught off-guard and wiped out, quickly the USS Dwight D Eisenhower orders general quarters and scrambles all her aircraft, totalling just over 60 F-18’s. Within 2 hours the F-18’s arrive in Pantheran airspace, the Su-35’s having retreated to Ukraine. They engage and successfully destroy БДК-64, but not before it has begun unloading it’s troops onto the northern part of the island. The British troops stationed there are quickly withdrawn to the southern part of the island and take up a defensive posture. Tuesday, May 8th 2015 Russia declares open hostilities against the US and the UK, both of which respond in kind. The USS Dwight D Eisenhower along with Destroyer Squadron 28 and two cruisers begin travelling flank speed from Gibraltar towards the black sea, estimated to arrive in two days. Meanwhile the Russian forces on the island, estimated to number a battalion sized unit of the Black sea marines begins spreading throughout the island, facing no resistance they effortlessly take central and northern Panthera. Meanwhile the remainder of the black sea fleet moves from the blockade of Ukraine it has held for many months and takes up position around Panthera, forming a near impenetrable air cordon for the US navies fighters. Wednesday, May 9th 2015 The russian fleet is reinforced by three more amphibious assault ships that make their way towards the island and begin reinforcing the troops stationed there, which have begun massing around the British garrisons position, assumed for an assault. With the US and UK officially in a state of war, NATO officially declares war on Russia and withdraws all nationals from the Ukraine peace talksand full scale counter-invasion of the Ukraine is initiated by a joint Germanic-French offensive. Meanwhile two more carrier groups are dispatched to the baltic sea, effectively trapping the Russian navy in their ports. The Royal navy is swiftly organised from a fractured mess into two parts, centered around HMS Ocean at Gibralter (Callsign Mighty O) and the two Albion class Assault ships, still based in the UK. Thursday, May 10th 2015 With mere hours until the USS Dwight D Eisenhower and HMS Ocean arrive in the black sea, the Russians massed around the Southern side of the island have begun to push towards the British garrison, it is imperative that they are held back until reinforcements arrive giving friendly forces a position to make landfall.

Turkey is conducting an unprecedented three-sea naval drill, the largest in its history. This is also the first time Turkish air and ground forces have taken part in a military exercise on this scale. The four-day Mavi Vatan ("Blue Homeland”) 2019 drill, involving 103 navy ships, began on Wednesday in the Black Sea, Aegean Sea, and the eastern Mediterranean simultaneously, giving Turkey a chance to show off its recently-upgraded fleet, which includes over a dozen assault boats and frigates in addition to corvettes, mine hunting boats, patrol boats, and submarines. Turkish-made Bayraktar and ANKA drones and jet fighters will also participate. The drill was planned six months ago, in accordance with NATO regulations.

Full documentary about Georgia, this country is located in the Caucasus, along the black sea. It is a country with European vocation and western spirit with great landscape and cultural variety. Georgia. The secret in the Caucasus Georgia has protected its artistic heritage and been able to maintain the vibrancy of its unique traditions. It has conserved a biodiversity greater than that of some continents, and has a magnetism which draws people back to visit over and over again. Although as small as Switzerland, Georgia is big in all aspects; a progressive nation, European in attitude and Western in spirit; a real Caucasian country with the joy of the Mediterranean. The vast vineyards of the Eastern Region of Kakheti, home to the largest wineries in the nation, are a clear illustration of this passion. In Georgia, there are a considerable number of grape varieties, more than anywhere else in the world. In Kakheti, almost everything revolves around wine. Proof of this is the XVI century wine cellar in Velistsikhe, in which the traditional “kvevri” are still used: clay barrels buried underground that maintain a constant temperature to ensure optimal fermentation. Tbilisi (tiflis), founded as a fortress-city in the V century, is the nation’s capital, its largest city and has been admired by famous people such as Leon Tolstoy and Alexander Dumas. Every corner of Tbilisi is quite captivating. Its bewitching spell is cast over the whole of this safe and friendly metropolis in which guests are considered a “gift from God”. At the end of the harvest, colourful folkloric celebrations take place in the wine making areas. The fertile Valley of Alazani, in the Region of Kakheti, is renowned because of the excellence of its grapes and because it is the source of outstanding wines such as Khindzmarauli and Gurdjani. Sighnaghi is one of the smallest towns in the country, but it has the second longest wall in the world, after China, also known as “the city of love” is also celebrated for its renowned grape harvest. The Tusheti National Reserve is one of the most beautiful areas of Georgia. Vashlovani National Park, in the south-eastern part of the country, has a semi-desert ecosystem and is an excellent example of the varied bio-diversity to be found in Georgia. One of the 13 Assyrian Holy Fathers who arrived in Georgia in order to strengthen Christianity, David Gareja, is buried here, and on his tomb there is a stone that symbolizes the one that the distinguished Patriarch brought in his journey from the Holy Land. Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park is in the centre of the country and it constitutes 1% of the territory of Georgia. Borjomi-Kharagauli, surrounded by the magical atmosphere of the Lower Caucasus, is the most visited Park in Georgia and has a large number of recreational activities on offer. In 1830, it was rumoured that springs from the Borjomi-Kharagauli Nature Reserve contained healing properties, and 60 years later, the first bottling plant of the now world-famous Borjomi water, was created. It is unique because of its naturally mineralized hydro carbonated sodium and therapeutic qualities. Shatili is located on the narrow pass of Arghuni, on the northern slope of the Great Caucasus. Sixty percent of Georgian territory are mountains. There a lots of fantastic opportunities for all kind of people who like nature, who like mountains. There are five peaks in the Caucasus in Georgia over 5000 meters, which gives really great opportunities for the amateur climbers. Apart from mountaineering these mountains give brilliant opportunities just for those who like nature, so you can do two or three weeks continuous tracks in a totally wild environment, plus there are lots of opportunities for rafting, canoeing, canyoning or any mountain activities. Georgia has two ski resorts: Bakuriani, to the south of Borjomi, at an altitude of 1,700 metres has conditions that are ideal for family skiing. Gudauri, in the Upper Caucasus, at 2,000 metres, has steep slopes which will satisfy the most extreme athletes.

Check out the strangest things happening in the ocean! This top 10 list of strange and unexplained underwater mysteries has some of the most surprising facts about the deep sea! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Ocean!" video here: https://youtu.be/XYfqi5VNgac Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Philippines!" video here: https://youtu.be/vwIIeiOhTJ0 Watch our "Most STRANGE Things Found On The Beach!" video here: https://youtu.be/cQjpze_4z5U 10. Undersea Rivers It’s easy to look at the ocean and see it as a large mass of water, without many of the features that we see on dry land. But the ocean is full of surprises!! Researchers discovered in the 1980s that things weren’t quite as simple as that, when technology allowed them to map the ocean’s floor for the first time. 9. Crop Circles Crop circles can be creepy. Whether you believe crop circles in farmers’ fields are a result of alien activity or just some artistic people, similar crop circles were found under the water. Researchers were scratching their heads as to how they were being formed. They were first discovered in 1995 off the coast of Japan, and soon a large number of them had been found in the surrounding waters. 8. Hydrothermal Vents In 1977, a team of researchers set off to investigate a temperature anomaly that had been discovered to the northeast of the Galapagos Islands, and what they found changed our understanding of the underwater environment. 7. Red Tide A red tide can occur in virtually every coastal region in the world. In fact, it has been reported in every US state with a shoreline, and incidences are thought to be on the rise. 6. The Julia Sound There’s a lot we don’t understand about the underwater world, especially certain noises that can be difficult to explain. One such noise is known as the ‘Julia’ sound, and was recorded on March 1st 1999. This low whining was so loud that it could be heard across the entire equatorial Pacific ocean autonomous hydrophone array. 5. Black Holes When you think of a black hole, you probably think of outer space, but now, scientists have discovered that black holes are closer than you think. Black holes can suck up matter from anything around them and nothing can escape, not even sound or light. 4. Fairy Circles When tourists and researchers started noticing strange bald patches in the seagrass meadows of the Mediterranean and Baltic seas, they were stumped as to what might be causing them. They were perfect rings with no vegetation. Affectionately known as ‘fairy circles’, they are clearly observable from overhead images of the deep blue ocean and, in some cases, from shore. 3. Internal Waves We’ve all seen images of giant waves on the ocean’s surface, but did you know that the largest waves of all are hidden out of view, deep below what we can see? Known as internal waves, the biggest are found in the Luzon Strait of the South China sea, and can reach up to 550 feet (167 m) tall. Located between Taiwan and the Philippines, these internal waves sound pretty strange! 2. Bioluminescence One of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see in the sea is bioluminescence. It can be caused by a wide variety of creatures such as bacteria, plankton, worms, snails, fish, jellyfish, and even sharks! 1. The Icy Finger of Death The Icy Finger of Death is undoubtedly the strangest thing that happens in the ocean, and potentially one of the most deadly. It’s a phenomenon that’s only recently been discovered happening beneath icebergs, and has fatal consequences for any slow-moving animal caught in its path. Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

The pufferfish Lagocephalus sceleratus, is an invasive species that has entered the Mediterranean Sea through the Suez Canal and is favoured by climate change. It attacks nets and fishing gears, is highly toxic (and thus dangerous if eaten), and has a serious negative impact on the Mediterranean countries. For example, Turkey has estimated a 5 million euros loss between 2013 and 2014. Thus, policy makers have deep interest in understanding where this fish will be in the near future. The goal of our multi-disciplinary team of scientists was to predict the areas this species was going to invade in the near future, and also to do it in a way that the approach was reusable, repeatable, reproducible, and applicable to other alien and invasive species. Collaboration between us was challenging too, because we were located at different and geographically distant institutions (England, Spain, and different cities in Italy). For these reasons, we technically needed: (i) accessing multiple and heterogeneous datasets collected by different organizations, (ii) data processing solutions using large computational infrastructures, and offering appropriate algorithms, (iii) services supporting collaborative Science, and (iv) services that allowed comparing our results with other scientific results. In order to address these requirements we set up a Virtual Laboratory (named “Alien and Invasive Species”) that connected heterogeneous services provided by several European Infrastructures (SeaDataCloud, D4Science, EGI, and Copernicus). These services covered the complete cycle of data analytics - from data collection and preparation to results publication – and supported collaboration and data exchange. Using them, we retrieved environmental geospatial data and species observations from GIS data provisioning services. Then, we combined a number of Artificial Intelligence models to estimate the correlations between the environmental data and the observations in the species' native habitat, and we projected this correlation onto different subdivisions of the Mediterranean Sea to display potential risk. Finally, we published these maps in infrastructural repositories and compared our results with recent observations of the species in the Mediterranean Sea. Our results highlighted a westward decreasing impact pattern, where high-risk zones for fisheries and health security are present in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and also in some areas in the middle and south, with a particular alert for the Bosporus that opens the way for the fish to enter the Black Sea. Overall, we advised selective fishing in the likely future impacted areas. These results were described in an Open Access publication that has been deposited in Zenodo.org and that is then accessible also through OpenAIRE. All the services we used are now discoverable and accessible through the EOSC portal so that they can be used to predict other dangerous invasions, like the one of the lionfish in the Mediterranean Sea and US waters. The EOSC portal also allows accessing the “Alien and Invasive Species” Virtual Laboratory to quickly replicate our results and apply our methodology to other species. Thus, by leveraging the multitude of EOSC services, we made our research fully compliant with Open Science practices in the sense that: (i) we collaborated through the EOSC services, (ii) every step is repeatable, (iii) the data and processes are freely accessible through standards, (iv) the experiment is described through an Open Access publication, and (v) the approach is general enough to be applied to other invasive species. The availability of these services allowed us to deliver a scientific result that had never been produced before, and in the short time frame of one month, which was unimaginable in the past. If you are interested, I invite you to go to the EOSC portal, enter the Virtual Lab, and replicate our experiment.

The Nigerian Senate has launched an investigation into circumstances surrounding the death of 26 Nigerian girls whose bodies were found on a Spanish warship. Following a motion sponsored by Rose Oko, the Senate on Thursday mandated three committees to investigate the incident. Bodies of the girls, mostly teenagers aged 14-18, and believed to have been sexually abused and murdered, were recovered at sea, BBC reported on Monday. Their bodies were discovered in a Spanish warship, Cantabria, carrying 375 migrants. Italian media reported that the bodies were being kept in a refrigerated section of the warship. Most of the 375 survivors brought to Salerno, among which were 90 women, eight of them pregnant, 52 children, were sub-Saharan Africans from Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, The Gambia and Sudan. Five migrants are being questioned in the southern port of Salerno following an investigation launched by Italian prosecutors on Monday. Mrs. Oko said emergency measures must be used to address the situation. “The Senate is worried that this mass exodus of our children from the relative safety and security of home to the often cold hands of death have arisen and are increasing as a result of the economic hardships at home including the unemployment situation in Nigeria,” she said. “The Senate strongly believes that it is time to go beyond the mere feeling of horror to taking pro-active, urgent and emergency measures to address the root causes of the exodus, including massive enlightenment on the dangers that it portends.” Shehu Sani, Kaduna-APC, said the incident was a “national tragedy” that must urgently be attended to. “The death of 26 Nigerians in the Mediterranean Sea is a national tragedy. It is unfortunate that year in, year out, thousands of Africans, Nigerians perish in the Mediterranean on the way to Europe in search for what they call greener pasture,” he said. “It is equally worrying that every month, hundreds of Nigerians are brought back to this country after failed attempts to cross the Mediterranean Sea and there are factors to this irregular migration. The push factors have to do with the issue of poverty, economic instability and also the pull factor has to do with the unrealisable dreams and illusions and also components that has to do with drug trafficking, terrorism and sexual abuse.” Sam Egwu, Ebonyi-PDP, called on the Federal and State governments to declare a state of emergency on unemployment to curb re-occurrence of the tragic incident. “The issue of unemployment has been a recurrent decimal and has been a source of worry and the implication is a source of worry to all of us,” he said. “Year in, year out, we turn out graduates that have no job to do after their NYSC and enabling environment is not even there to start their businesses. I think the Federal and State governments should declare state of emergency on unemployment and do something tangible.” The Senate, in its resolution mandated its committees on Diaspora, Foreign Affairs and Special Duties, to investigate the incident and report back within four weeks and thereafter observed a minute silence for the repose of the souls of the girls. The lawmakers however rejected four prayers moved by the sponsor of the bill.

As American real-life tv shows about tuna fishers are rising in popularity, the fishing industry in the Mediterranean Sea has been under exposed. Yet, these South European waters are filled with danger for the Atlantic bluefin tuna; overfishing and illegal fishing activities have had serious consequences for the bluefin tuna population. The increasing demand for tuna has led to a worldwide decline of the species and their numbers are still dropping rapidly. This profound documentary reveals an ongoing tug-of-war between local fishermen, environmentalists, fish farmers and scientists. Is there a way to put a halt to overfishing and to rescue the bluefin tuna from extinction? Want to watch more full-length Documentaries?

Cubes of salt washed up on the shore in the Deadsea (Israel Dead sea, Deadsea) Dead sea (from wikipedia): also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east, and Palestine and Israel to the west. near Jerusalem. Its surface and shores are 427 metres (1,401 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 306 m (1,004 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Vanda in Antarctica (35%), Lake Assal (Djibouti) (34.8%), Lagoon Garabogazköl in the Caspian Sea (up to 35%) and some hypersaline ponds and lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond (44%)) have reported higher salinities. It is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometres (31 mi) long and 15 kilometres (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River.
