Short description of the organization/department/research team Gruppo CSA is a private research institute based in Italy, that can be qualified as a SME, with about 120 employees and a turnover over 8 million euro per year. Gruppo CSA is active in several fields since 1985, including sustainability analysis, sampling, physico-chemical and microbiological determinations, research and consulting in the environmental, food farming, industrial safety, management system sectors and it has cooperated with national and international research centers, districts and city administrations and environmental protection agencies. The Project, Research and Development Division of Gruppo CSA has a long experience in developing and managing aquatic system studies (rivers, lakes, lagoons, groundwater, seas), with particular regard on marine coastal environment. In this context, our team has specific competences in research studies on biogeochemical processes at the sediment-water interface and their impacts on the aquatic system (e.g. benthic fluxes, bio-geochemical proxies, pore waters). We collaborate with several national and international Universities and Research Centres, in order to improve and manage the aquatic ecosystems.

Description of other previous and presernational cooperationent experience in International Cooperation Thanks to its experience and competences in research studies on biogeochemical processes at the sediment-water interface and their impacts on the aquatic system (e.g. benthic fluxes, bio-geochemical proxies, pore waters), Gruppo CSA developed and improved the following tools in the framework of national and European research projects: 1) Analytical methods for the determination of Redox Sensitive Element (RSE). RSEs contained in sediments showed to have a good potential as paleoenvironmental and historical proxies for the marine environment. 2) A core incubator to measure fluxes under temperature and hydrodynamic control, useful to simulate different environmental conditions (such as those induced by climate change). 3) In situ sediment-water interface flux measurements. 4) A Decision Supporting System (DSS) for the Adriatic Coastal Zone, in order to predict and manage hypoxia/anoxia events.
