    The SCANS-II project aims at estimating the abundance of small cetaceans inhabiting shelf waters of the Atlantic margin, the North Sea and adjacent waters. Different methods will be used; ship-based monitoring is one of these. Data on abundance are essential to assess the impact of bycatch and other threats, and as input to management actions to ensure the favourable conservation status of these species. The project will develop a management framework to use such data. This will be centred on relatively simple but spatially explicit dynamic models tested by simulation to ensure robustness. An essential part of this long-term management is a robust cost-effective means of monitoring abundance between major SCANS-type surveys; the project will develop and test potential methods, and recommend a suite of monitoring protocols.The "BEL-COLOUR" aims at improving the theoretical basis and software tools for applications of suspended matter and chlorophyll-based satellite data products in coastal waters. In addition to algorithm work and image processing BEL-COLOUR will participate in sea borne cruises for the purposes of calibration of algorithms and for validation of the end products. The project "BEL-COLOUR", funded by the <a href="http://www.belspo.be">Federal Science Policy</a>, within the programme for Earth Observation "STEREO" - Study and management of Coastal Regions.

    Abundance indices, distribution patterns and faunal assemblages of demersal species in the Porcupine bank, together with the possible driving factors of their distribution. This survey belongs to the research project: ?Evaluacion de Recursos Demersales por Metodos Directos en el Area ICES?. This Project is partly funded by the DCR of the EU and the Education and Science Spanish Ministery.The main objectives of the above mentioned project related with this survey time series are: a) to obtain abundance indices of the main exploited species in the Porcupine bank; b) to estimate the strength of yearly recruitments of these species and their distribution in the bank. c) to study the structure and distribution o the demersal and benthic communities in the area.
