Download the FREE app "ARGO Sentinel": You can help to monitor the health of your sea and the scientific research! Whoever at sea sights a pollution by oil or hydrocarbons will be able to immediately report the event to the Laboratory of Signals and Images SI-LAB (si.isti.cnr.it) of the Institute of Science and Information Technologies of the Italian National Research Council (CNR-ISTI) in Pisa, allowing the realization of a detailed map of the health of our seas. This information will be recorded in the Marine Information System (MIS) produced by CNR, able to collect data relating to critical and health issues of the sea from various sources (satellites, optical sensors, electronic noses, autonomous underwater vehicles, systems and geo-GPS geolocation ) and integrate and generate predictive models to assist the authorities in the management of emergencies. The application, in Italian, English and Greek, for smartphones (Android v2.1 or higher) with GPS, developed by CNR-ISTI within the European research project ARGOMARINE (www.argomarine.eu), is an easy to use tool designed for anyone, that for any reason, sail the seas. Allows you to send reports of suspected spills to the CNR specifying the precise point, severity and a description of the spill.
