Section (or Support Operative Unit - UOS) of Oristano studies the interactions between marine organisms and their environment, the assessment of the state of the marine ecosystem for the prediction of performance over time and space by means of numerical models and experimental investigations (in situ and laboratory experiments in a controlled environment). The main research fields are: (1) physical and biological oceanography in particular through the use of numerical models on a coastal and sub-regional scale in the context of operational oceanography and sea forecasts; (2) the biology of organisms with the ecophysiology of fish; (3) the morphodynamics of coastal environments, ie the relationships between hydrodynamics, solid transport and the variability of morphological characteristics in the lagoons, in the sandy coasts and in the continental shelf; (4) the ecology of benthos and analysis of trophic networks (stable isotopes C and N) in coastal and transitional marine ecosystems; the development and application of environmental quality benthic indicators within the EU Marine Directives; (5) Management and conservation of marine biological resources with particular reference to the study of protected species and Marine Protected Areas.

Since 2002, Publiacqua S.p.A., the company that manages the water service in the Medio Valdarno basin in Tuscany, has engaged in water cooperation projects. Through the destination of one hundredth of a euro per cubic meter of water consumed by users, the fund "The water belongs to everyone" is set up, thanks to which it was possible to carry out interventions in those countries where water is lacking or badly used. In 2005, the founding members with the contribution of the local Tuscan authorities, together with the scientific and academic world, created a non-profit association for the management of the Fund itself: the WATER RIGHT FOUNDATION was born, which, in just over a decade has carried out projects for around 2,500,000 euros, with a total number of estimated beneficiaries equal to one million people. In 2012, the transformation from an association to an ONLUS Participation Foundation was promoted, with the aim of extending the areas of action to energy, food and health and thereby directing its commitment towards the issue of climate change. and commitments on the climate of COP 21. The "300 billion trees" project is born, which assumes that at least 300 billion new trees should be planted to reach the goal of carbon neutrality in 2050 worldwide. The project aims to use all the appropriate tools to promote the planting of new trees - in any suitable place and by any subject - and increase the storage capacity of CO2 in wood, plants and soil. Not only a commitment to the Earth but also one in favor of the sea, so as to provide, in the project, a specific section dedicated to BLUE CARBON and thus turning attention to Posidonia oceanica, particularly sensitive and widespread in the Mediterranean, capable of storing large amount of CO2 and yet subject to pressure that follows important erosion phenomena.
