The coastline is a link between land and ocean that has been subjected to strong anthropization (i.e. the transformation of the environment due to human presence or action) for centuries. 40% of the European population lives in coastal areas, rich in biodiversity, industry, culture and heritage. The TRaversing European Coastlines (TREC) / Tara Europa expedition aims to explore European coastal ecosystems over the coming 2 years (2023-2024) to better understand the interactions between the two main ecosystems of our planet: land and the ocean.
