A 24-hour challenge was set by the Blue Dot Solutions company. Participants were asked to find the best ways of satellite data application in order to solve the key climate-change-related issues in the area of the Baltic Sea. Among others the spread of plankton, wave heights distribution, radiation balance, flooding and erosion in the coastal areas and spills from the shoreline.
Each team developed one idea. The rewarded project was designed for the fisheries sector. An application that would identify the most probable position of a fish stock. Based on the temperature and phytoplankton biomass, which comprise living conditions and food base, it would estimate the fish distribution in the sea.
One of the awards was a professional consultation with the scientists from the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, who created SatBaltyk System.
