Ispra, Italy, 7 - 9 Jun 10
Experts in satellite monitoring of sea-based oil pollution meet in Ispra
The IPSC will host on 7-9 June the 13th EGEMP (European Group of Experts on satellite Monitoring and assessment of sea-based oil Pollution) and the 7th EMSA CSN (European Maritime Safety Agency CleanSeaNet) User Group Meetings.
The European Group of Experts on satellite Monitoring of sea-based oil Pollution (EGEMP) is a permanent network where competent authorities from EU Member States, Candidate Countries (Croatia and Turkey), EEA (Norway and Iceland), Secretariats of relevant Regional Agreements (Helsinki Convention, Bonn Agreement 1993, Barcelona Convention, Bucharest Convention, and Lisbon Agreement) and the ESA (European Space Agency) discuss matters related to satellite monitoring of sea-based oil pollution.
The initiative of EGEMP was launched by the European Commission (JRC and DG Environment) in 2004 and since then EGEMP met regularly twice a year. Following the close collaboration between JRC and EMSA, since 2007, EGEMP meets jointly with the EMSA CleanSeaNet User Group (once in Ispra and once in Lisbon). The Secretariat of EGEMP and the website is managed by JRC.
The next event will include also a special session devoted to present, to the members of the EGEMP and EMSA-CSN, key relevant European projects in the field of Surveillance such as: ARGOMARINE, MARISS, LIMES, WIMAAS, I2C, and SEABILLA.
