What's COMETS? COMETS (COMmunicating advanced progress in coastal Eutrophication To Stake holders and the scientific community) is a cluster of three Belgian Science Policy research projects [AMORE, CANOPY and SISCO] gathering Belgian scientists experts in coastal eutrophication. COMETS addresses questions such as the filtering capacity of the Belgian coastal zone with respect to anthropogenic nutrients and carbon, the impact of nutrient reductions on the spreading of algal blooms in the Belgian coastal zone and adjacent areas and the impact of harmful algal blooms on marine resources. The objectives of COMETS are to: promote the visibility of Belgian activities related to marine coastal eutrophication towards the international scientific community and the various stake holders (public authorities, industry, fishermen, non-governmental organisation, the general public). promote the visibility of Belgian activities related to marine coastal eutrophication towards the international scientific community and the various stake holders. install a sustained dialogue based on mutual respect, between scientists and public authorities and policy makers for guiding decisions in the matter of eutrophication-related problems and protection of continental and marine waters.
