  • Every map lies - A geohistorical approach to wetland restoration: ancient maps and modern geospatial technologies for a source-to-sea perspective in the Pantanello Natural Park and surrounding designated areas

    Gaglioti, Martina (Self published, 2023)
    This study has been conceived after a field-based experience and developing the wider analysis through a geohistorical approach, according to the need to deepen the scientific knowledge of a portion of land characterized by a relevant habitat complexity and species diversity, despite its limited spatial extension. One of the main objectives of this study is to describe the changes in the land use, over approximately 150 years in an Italian agricultural landscape, in relation to changes in human population, livestock and wildlife species, to analyze the relationships between historical land use, current species diversity and upcoming uses of the natural resources within the area.
  • Unveiling the quarries world: outreach and dissemination session in the framework of Fishtuna Festival 2023

    Gaglioti, Martina (Tavolara Diving, 2023)
    During the last edition of Fishtuna festival I had the opportunity to share some insights from field-based research conducted in the Aegadian Islands MPA in 2016-2017. This event shed light on local traditions and on the intangible heritage of the Aegadian Archipelago, focusing on traditions from multiple perspectives: art, tourism and traditional food. On this perspective, I briefly introduced through a video projection, an extract of the work performed in collaboration with the Aegadian Islands MPA and the University of Rome in 2016-2017 dedicated to another relevant aspect of the cultural heritage of this place: the quarries of the eastern portion of Favignana island.
  • Marine Genetic Resources: An Intellectual Property Perspective.

    Kirchner-Freis, Iris; Kirchner, Andree (Hugo Grotius Publishers, 2023)
    After about 20 years of negotiations in different fora, the United Nations (UN) adopted on 19 June 2023 the Agreement under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ Agreement). The BBNJ Agreement is intended to ensure conservational and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction. Part II of the new BBNJ Agreement deals with marine genetic resources (MGRs) of areas beyond national jurisdiction, i.e. the high seas and the Area (Art. 1(2), BBNJ Agreement), the digital sequence information (DSI) on MGRs, and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from their utilization.
  • Transformación tecnológica de la señalización marítima

    May Coneo, Willie; Dirección General Marítima (2022)
    Revista Pais de Mares
    Los cambios tecnológicos del desarrollo de la industria marítima con referencia a las embarcaciones obliga a la modernización de las ayudas a la navegación, dado que su función es ayudar al navegante a corroborar la precisión de su posición y debe ser identificada por los instrumentos de navegación a bordo de los buques. Por tal razón, las autoridades marítimas, que para el caso de Colombia la competencia es de la Dirección General Marítima (Dimar), aportan al desarrollo comercial, económico y de protección del medio marino, mediante la instalación y mantenimiento en servicio las ayudas a la navegación en el territorio marítimo.
  • Salvaguardando la vida humana en el mar. Dimar: una autoridad que trabaja 24x7 (SAR y tsunami)

    Orozco de la Hoz, William Nicolás; Buriticá Hernández, Carlos Andrés; Dirección General Marítima (2022)
    Revista Pais de Mares
    La Autoridad Marítima Colombiana en el ejercicio de sus funciones y responsabilidades implementó el Centro Nacional de Monitoreo y Vigilancia Marítima (Cnmvm), desde donde se coordinan con las capitanías de puerto (CP) y las estaciones de control tráfico y vigilancia marítima (Ectvm) actividades relacionadas con el control del tráfico marítimo, la búsqueda y salvamento marítimo. Adicionalmente, con la finalidad de monitorear y evaluar la posibilidad de generación de tsunamis por eventos sísmicos, erupciones volcánicas y perturbaciones de nivel del mar asociadas a tsunami por fuente desconocida, la Dirección General Marítima (Dimar) también cuenta con el Centro Nacional de Alerta contra los Tsunamis (CNAT) que trabaja en forma coordinada con el Servicio Geológico Colombiano (SGC) y la Unidad Nacional para la Gestión del Riesgo del Desastres (Ungrd) en el marco del Sistema Nacional de Detección y Alerta de Tsunami (Sndat), con el objetivo de generar y difundir información de tsunami a las entidades que integran el Sistema Nacional de Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres (Sngrd) y la comunidad en general.
