Aratos Earth Observation Data Platform supports a new map layer for the sector of Βlue Εconomy.

In the renewed system of Aratos Earth Observation Data Platform the renewal of the Mass concentration of the Dissolved Iron in seawater is added. Iron is an essential nutrient not only for humans but also for microscopic marine life. As a key nutrient for phytoplankton, iron has an important role in the oceanic carbon cycle. When phytoplankton bloom, they absorb carbon dioxide from ocean water, and they take it with them to the deep ocean when they die. The amount of iron available to them controls how fast they grow, and so how fast they take up carbon.


We continue to innovate with space technologies since 2005.
