Dear enviroBrowser,

The enviroGRIDS has reached an official end at the end of March 31. 2013… however this web site will remain open for several years to keep the access to all the material created by the project.

In order to allow end users to keep developing applications from the Black Sea catchment Observation System (, this platform will also remain open for several years with all its components:
• Geoportal: allows users to search, discover, and access data sets in the Black Sea catchment.
• Greenland: generates and executes on the GRID workflows processing satellite images.
• gSWAT: allows users to calibrate SWAT hydrological models on the GRID.
• eGLE: implements both a user interface, and the tools for the development, the execution and the management of teaching materials.
• BASHYT: is a Collaborative Working Environment (CWE) on the web that relies on complex "physically based" hydrological, land cover and ocean models to support decision makers through a user-friendly Web interface.

Thank you for visiting the enviroGRIDS website. The project is finished but the effort to build capacity on Earth Observation in the Black Sea region is continuing with various projects. Let’s hope that our past and future efforts will help the Black Sea region to enter a new era of informed decision-making on its environment as soon as possible, and to move toward a more sustainable pathway in its future development. As far as the coordination team is concerned, we are dedicated to pursue the effort with all our energy and means.

With our best enviroWishes…

Anthony Lehmann, Nicolas Ray, Grégory Giuliani, Emanuele Mancuso, Karim Abbaspour, Seval Sözen, Dorian Gorgan and Annelies Beel and the enviroGRIDS consortium.
