Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) has joined the European LIFE INTEMARES project as a partner. The project, coordinated by the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO), aims to expand marine protected areas and promote their effective management. The initiatives that the UPV is […]

Smart Irrigation for Citrus Crops

Environmental degradation and water shortage caused by the effects of climate change, along with the growing demand for food due to the continuous increase in world population, are the main challenges facing this decade at a global level.In response to these challenges, agriculture is promoting the sustainable management of land and natural resources to ensure […]

Return of the Loggerhead Turtles

In recent decades, the preservation of the loggerhead sea turtle or Caretta caretta has raised great concern due to the escalation of environmental threats, many of them caused by the negative impact of human activity on the marine environment. In addition to the effects of marine pollution, specifically the presence of marine debris consisting mainly […]

Study Confirms that Adaptive Forest Management Does Not Affect Soil Properties

Adaptive forest management does not adversely affect soil properties. It is necessary to articulate forest ecohydrological-based measures that help mitigate the impact of climate change on Mediterranean forests. These are the main findings of the study carried out by the researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València, Cristina Lull (Campus Gandia), Inmaculada Bautista, Antonio Lidón, […]

Remote Sensing to Analyze Turbidity Patterns in the Albufera

Maite Sebastiá and Javier Estornell, experts in Environmental Management and Remote Sensing at Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València, have collaborated with researchers from the School of Marine Sciences at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California (Mexico)  in a study that analyzes the monthly turbidity pattern of the Albufera lagoon. The project began […]

Improved Irrigation in Fruit Farms

GOINNOWATER is a supra-regional project for the improvement of water and energy management in modernized irrigation of fruit farms, responding to the need to improve and increase the efficiency of the use of these natural resources, as well as the productivity and economic viability of these crops, ultimately guaranteeing the health and sustainability of ecosystems […]

The Environment in Times of Pandemic

Confinement has given rise to numerous online cultural and scientific dissemination initiatives to help keep us busy and learn new things at home. As part of this trend, the Eucrante Association has offered two free online talks by Miguel Rodilla, research professor at Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València, and marine environment expert.
