Phytoplankton monitoring in the South Adriatic (Adricosm-STAR project), 2008-2009. Discrete water samples are taken at multiple depth layers. The samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (0.8% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications. more

The project aims at the development and partial implementation of an integrated coastal area and river and urban waters management system that considers both observational and modelling components. The area of investigation is the Bojana river Delta and the whole Montenegro Adriatic coast: the project considers transboundary water issues, such as the Bojana river that is managed by both Montenegro and Albania, and the Montenegro coastal area which is naturally affected by Albanian marine waters. The project develops innovative components such as studies of climate change impacts on the water resources and sediment transport.
