The CERTO project has started with a productive two-day meeting hosted by Plymouth Marine Laboratory in January 2020.

Partners from 7 institutes across Europe gave presentations on their workpackages and discussed how they were going to work together towards the overall goal of harmonising water monitoring practices across marine, coastal and inland areas.

Focus areas for the project include ascertaining community requirements, in situ data and case studies, optical water type classification, land-sea interface and atmospheric correction, indicators, development of a protype and demonstration of its capabilities.

An advisory board and innovation team meeting were held in the afternoon and the second day was devoted to reviewing and planing activities for the first year of the project.
