Description 
Summary

ADIOS was a focused pan-European study of the atmospheric deposition and impact of pollutants and nutrients on the Mediterranean open sea. The extent to which atmosphere represents an important pathway for various pollutants and natural substances from Europe and North Africa towards this ecologically sensitive marine environment, and subsequently affects its biogeochemistry remains largely unknown. The magnitude and quality of atmospheric deposition was assessed by an atmospheric sampling network encompassing the whole basin, as well as by the extensive use of SeaWIFS data and dust transport-deposition modelling. Biogeochemical processes levels and ecotoxicological effects induced by natural and anthropogenic aerosols were examined, from surface down to the deep sediments. The project contributed to the sustainable management and safer use of the Mediterranean Sea.
