Charney School signed a first-of-its-kind MOU with Emirati and German academic institutes to protect oceans

The Charney School is partnering with the United Arab Emirates University and the Germany-based GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel to investigate climate change and pollution in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and the Arabian Gulf. The five-year research initiative was signed at the UN’s annual climate conference COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh. The partners will use advanced marine technologies like novel cameras, chemical sensors, and underwater vehicles to collect data and develop science-based responses to climate change and pollution. Their goal is to develop models predicting what the Mediterranean and Arabian Gulf will look like in the future.
