The SURLITOP project has been initiated in the frame of the RITMER network, which has been formed after the the oil spill caused by the sinking of the ERIKA, which affected a large part of the Atlantic coastline, from Brittany to Charentes. One aim of RITMER is to develop and demonstrate technologies for tracking and monitoring of pollutants.
The SURLITOP project is coordinated by Actimar. Other partners include the University of Hamburg Remote Sensing Group / HF radar, BOOST Technologies , LSEET (Laboratoire de Sondages Electromagnetiques de l'Environnement Terrestre) and the French Hydrographic Office (SHOM).
The main aim of the French SURLITOP project is to demonstrate operational monitoring for coastal zone management.
