Predicting jellyfish swarms through citizen science
In the vast expanse of the ocean, understanding its intricate dynamics has long been a challenge. But this challenge can be mitigated by using the collective power of everyday citizens. The EU-funded Iliad project, aiming to create digital replicas of our oceans, known as Digital Twins of the Ocean (DTOs), is using of citizen science in its Jellyfish Swarm Forecast pilot project, which is led by partner organisation the University of Haifa.
Iliad’s wave power energy pilot: transforming seas into sustainable energy sources
One of the interesting pilot sites run by the EU-funded Iliad Project is operated by Iliad partner Eco Wave Power which is testing and validating various wave sensors collecting the wave data from the location of its 100kW Wave Energy Converter in Jaffa Port, Israel.
