Agency's Technical Cooperation Projects supporting the Protection of the Marine Environment
MEL provides scientific and technical support for the planning and implementation of Technical Co-operation Projects. This includes capacity building through provision of expertise, field and laboratory training and advice concerning equipment requirements; and collaborative investigations, including field and analytical work. The laboratory supports the organisation of scientific and training cruises and MEL scientists participate in these cruises and assist with analytical, assessment and research work. TC Projects are supported through MEL's three sections, providing a comprehensive approach to marine pollution and process studies through the use of nuclear analytical and tracer techniques.
- Improving Regional Capacity for Assessment, Planning and Response to Aquatic Environmental Emergencies (RCA)
- Contamination Assessment of the South Mediterranean Sea
- Marine Radioactivity Assessment of the Aqaba Gulf Area
- Measurement of long-lived Radionuclide Tracers in the Marine Environment
- Transfer of Receptor Binding Assay for Harmful Algal Toxins
- Enhancing the Sustainability of the Marine Coastal Environment (RCA)
- Coastal Zone Management, Phase I (AFRA II-6)
- Nuclear Techniques to Study the Red Tide Problem
- Application of Receptor Binding Assays for Mapping and Monitoring of Shellfish Toxins
- Assessment of the Marine Pollution from Off-Shore Petroleum Exploration
