Description 
Summary

The EVOLINE project aims to study the coastal erosion acting in the Northern Adriatic area (along Bibione and Lignano coast). It is founded by Friuli-Venezia-Giulia Local Government to provide meteo-oceanographic conditions to Civil Protection Center in Palmanova (Udine). The complete experimental activity is based on a Datawell Directional Waverider (DWR), the meteo-oceanographic MAMBO2 buoy and the PAGODA instrumental set-up (the near-shore station). The meteo-oceanographic MAMBO2 buoy is fitted with a CTD profiler, casting every three hours by means of an electrical winch, and a meteorological station, with temperature sensor, anemometer, barometer and humidity sensor. All instruments are managed by controller mounted on the buoy. The MAMBO2 data are sent in real-time via GSM to OGS for data processing.
