Project Description:

This environmental study aimed to assess the potential impacts of a submarine pipeline on the Posidonia oceanica meadows in Vasiliko Bay. The study included mapping with Side Scan Sonar (SSS) and aerial photos, characterization of the meadows using P. oceanica descriptors, and analyses of sediment physico-chemical properties. The potential impacts of the project were assessed and mitigation measures were proposed.
