JERICO TNA sampling polar organic chemicals in marine water with organic –diffusive gradient in thin-film (o-DGT)
This experiment under JERICO TNA started on 11th September, 2013 with the ferrybox together with the ‘Chem-Mariner’ unit in the ferry of Color Fantasy travels between Oslo (Norway) and Kiel (Germany) and with the fix station in Cuxhaven in Germany. The experiment is planned to end in the middle of October, 2013.

Third TNA Call Opens
JERICO Workshop WP10
Date: 16-18 October 2013
Location: Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche/Mer
Organisers: P.Farcy (IFREMER Brest France), G.Nolan (Marine Institute Galway Ireland), L.Coppola (CNRS LOV France)
In the framework of JERICO, a workshop will be organised on the main results of WP10 to date.
GESEBB glider Mission of the First TNA call of JERICO
The GESEBB glider mission (http://www.jerico-fp7.eu/) of the first TNA call of Jerico re-started on 23 July, 2013 The deep glider mission will cover the southeastern Bay of Biscay (from 43N to 45ºN and from 2.5ºW to 4.5ºW), during 2 months (until end of September 2013). During approximately 12 days, the glider will first perform two exploratory transects, covering a distance of 300 km approximately from the sea surface to a maximum depth of 1000 m. After that and depending on the observations, the rest of the campaign (48 days) will be redefined.
Follow the Glider
Follow the Glider is a web tool aimed at students and developed by CEFAS, IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB) and SOCIB (Balearic Coastal Monitoring and Forecasting System) as part of the European FP7 – JERICO project. It is based on the glider-monitoring tool available at www.socib.es.
The aim is to help students from a variety of different grade levels to find out what underwater gliders are and gain awareness of their importance for coastal research. We also strive to enable students to monitor the gliders that SOCIB is currently using in the Balearic coastal area.

JERICO Biofouling Monitor Program
ISMAR-CNR (Institute of Marine Sciences – Italian National Research Council) developed a special sampling system (Biofouling Monitoring Box - BMB) to be deployed in 12 selected locations in Europe (amongst all JERICO partners) both in coastal and open waters (see Figure 1). The BMB (see Figure 2) is a monitoring device allowing to study the complexity of biofouling community. It was designed to simulate a wide range of sensors and sensor housing/containers, considering different substrates (metal, glass, plastic), spatial and structural heterogeneity typical of marine sensors immersed in coastal and open waters. The main aims of this study will be: 1) characterization of the biofouling community in the different geographic locations; 2) screening of biofouling on different kind of sensors and identification of critical materials and areas of the instruments as regards the settlement of organisms 3) deep understanding of biofouling as a technological problem peculiar of each tested material and each selected site, in order to identify the most effective and appropriate antifouling method to protect sensors and their housings from biofouling in each geographical location.
