EMOWAF project was introduced at the first edition of the Black Sea from Space Workshop, jointly organised by ESA, ROSA and the National Institute for Marine Research and Development Grigore Antipa, Constanta, Romania, 28-30 September, 2016.

The Black Sea region represents a high priority in the political arena, characterised by an emerging dynamic economic growth and affected by important environmental transformations and climate impacts that require continuous monitoring and assessment.

The focus of this workshop is to assess the opportunities for EO research and development activities in the Black Sea Basin and the Danube Delta region that may be the basis for future ESA investments in terms of science, development of novel applications and testing new information services to address some of the key information needs of this important area.
