Maritime Forum


The Maritime Forum aims to improve communication amongst EU maritime policy stakeholders. It allows parties interested in the EU maritime policy to communicate on a common platform. They can publish events, documents and follow developments in their areas of interest. Information can be shared amongst a closed community or published openly. Anybody can register to the forum and comment on its content.

Map of the week - Accident density

Our “Map of the week”, provided by EMSA, gives an overview of accident density (high, medium and low) in the seas around Europe (data from 2009). Factors such as the weather, the nature of the coastline and traffic density have a significant effect on the number and types of accidents that occur in a region.

Map of the week – Coastal migration (satellite data)

Our “Map of the week”, powered by satellite data, provides a birds-eye view on how Europe’s coastlines have been changing over the last 10 years. In this new map, users can visualise pan-European coastal behaviour for 2007-2017 and distinguish areas of landward migration (erosion or submergence), stability, and seaward migration (accretion or emergence).

Map of the week – Posidonia oceanica distribution (seagrass species)

Many species of seagrass exist and four are natives of European waters . Some are distributed all over Europe’s coastal waters while others, like the Posidonia oceanica, are strictly Mediterranean. As March was “Seagrass Awareness Month”, we decided to continue to celebrate the essential role of these marine species and their contribution to the biodiversity with a “Map of the week”!
