Earth observations to address Sargassum inundations and spread

Large influxes of Sargassum on beaches and in coastal areas in the tropical Atlantic Ocean are increasingly harming marine ecosystems, disrupting coastal activities and impacting local communities. The EU4OceanObs case study presents how the Earth observation value chain can help understand the Sargassum basin-wide spread, its impacts and inform mitigation and adaptation strategies.
