SCHeMA is a European project funded by the European Community under the 7th Framework Programme www.ec.europa.eu/research/fp7/index_en.cfm
SCHeMA aims at providing an open and modular sensing solution for in situ high resolution mapping of a range of anthropogenic and natural chemical compounds that may have feedback (synergic) interaction: toxic and/or essential Hg, Cd, Pb, As and Cu trace metal species; nitrate, nitrite, and phosphate nutrients; species relevant to the carbon cycle; volatile organic compounds; potentially toxic algae species and toxins.
The project was launched on 1st October 2013 and will last 48 months.
Coordination is ensured by Dr Mary-Lou Tercier-Waeber from CABE University of Geneva.
