Short summary
The Civitavecchia Coastal Environment Monitoring System (C-CEMS) has been developed by the Laboratory of Experimental Oceanology and Marine Ecology in order to analyze the conflicts between human pressures and ecosystem conservation. As examples, the analysis of faecal bacteria dispersion for bathing water quality assessment and the evaluation of the effects of the dredged activities on Posidonia meadows are reported. Finally, C-CEMS can be considered a useful tool for coastal zone management.
