CONGRATULATIONS and all the best!!!


On behalf of the S'Agulla Team and myself, I would like to congratulate you for all the hard work. WELL DONE!!!

You have done lovely presentations to introduce yourselves and showed us a little about the bit of ocean that you enjoy!

Now we know that the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is not even. Compared to last March, average SST it is about 0.5-2ºC colder in some places and at others was warmer! Looking at the average of the past 13 years results are also similar. You all agree that 2003 was the year with the largest oscillation of SST, but the smallest occurred at different years!

Taking the measure of the Secchi depth didn't go well for most of you. However you have a difference of 5m between Cagliari and Blanes. Just imagine how much more plankton there must be in Blanes to make such a difference. Remember that plankton is the base of the marine food chain!

The beaches you have been surveying have hardly any tides, but the Mediterranean Sea is not a lake, otherwise the SST and Secchi depth would have been similar all over.

You have surveyed beaches and seen that the size of the grains of sand affects the way it piles up. In turn, it also reacts differently to the action of the sea and wind and that’s why you have different beach profiles!

It has been fantastic to know your ‘marine menu’, so you love red shrimps but you really catch more sardines! The kinds of fish you eat are mostly small species but they are all very tasty to me!

I've had a lot of fun discovering what the inland looks like through your audioguides. Those who haven't finished yet try to post it up as soon as possible. Some of you have little to go before the end of the term!

Thank you for all your collaboration and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

All the best!

Sharky and The S'Agulla Team
