Towards Sustainable Management of Mussel Farming through High-Resolution Images and Open Source Software - The Taranto Case Study
TLDR
The creation of an instant, high-precision cartographic representation made it possible to identify the anthropogenic pressures on the Mar Piccolo of Taranto and the necessary actions for better management of the area.
Applicability of a Recreational-Grade Interferometric Sonar for the Bathymetric Survey and Monitoring of the Drava River
TLDR
A novel software which enables the bridging between a closed sonar file format and the commonly used Geographic Information System (GIS) datasets is developed and the several month-long conventional bathymetric survey of the Drava River was reduced to 20 days and provided channel bathymetry of many orders of magnitude higher than the classical methods.
Ghost nets: A poorly known threat to Brazilian freshwater biodiversity.
TLDR
This work conducted searches on YouTube BR to gather information aboutghost nets in Brazilian freshwaters and compiled 33 independent videos showing ghost nets in different aquatic environments to better understand and mitigate this problem in Brazilian freshwater ecosystems.
Plastic pollution: A focus on freshwater biodiversity
TLDR
Evidence of plastic ingestion by 206 freshwater species, from invertebrates to mammals, in natural or semi-natural ecosystems is found, and other consequences of synthetic polymers in freshwater ecosystems are reported.
