Summer school: "Ostreopsis bloom modelling"

The second Summer School was held in Tunis, and was mainly devoted to strategies for data collection. Colleagues of the Tunisians research institutions have also presented some of their research, and in the sequence of videos published on this page, these relations are at the beginning.

The following videos are interviews with various project partners, describing the key aspects and issues related to data collection and the construction of models that are able to predict the presence of Ostreopsis in the Mediterranean and the phases of the algae bloom.
