European Project LIFE LEMA, LIFE15 ENV / ES / 000252 (http://lifelema.eu): During the RADPROF campaign of the IEO, carried out in August, 120 wooden boats have been launched in the waters of the Galicia Bank and in the open waters of the North Atlantic (~ 43º N, 15.40º W). The objective is to study the possible trajectories of marine litter towards the Portuguese coast, its intrusion into the Mediterranean or its drift following the North Atlantic Subtropical Gyre.
