In the framework of its social responsibility activities and as a sincere attempt to return added-value products and services to the Society, Aratos Group designed, developed and published for general use, the Sun UV Protector mobile application.
Aratos is a partner of the very important European project, ECOPOTENTIAL .In its a framework, a book was produced that focuses on 24 protected areas that are part of the ECOPOTENTIAL project and describes a collection of scenarios where Earth observation data is essential, accompanied by visual maps covering the whole extension of each protected area.The main purpose of this volume is to illustrate the capabilities of remote sensing and how this technique is being applied in many ways to monitor several different aspects of ecosystems and environmental conditions. Each type of ecosystem (mountain, arid or coastal and marine) presents different challenges that will be addressed through different Earth observation and data analysis approaches.

The ADC now offers daily updates of the Total Column indicators (index TC) as received from the Eumetsat satellite. The TC index provides information on the total columns of four type of trace gases in the atmosphere: O3 (Ozone), NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide), SO2 (Sulphur Dioxide) and HCHO (Formaldehyde), for instance their distribution in perceived vertical columns along the layers of the atmosphere.
The overall objective of the European Co-funded EcoSUSTAIN project (Interreg-MED framework) is to increase the management capacity of protected areas while developing integrated management and networking methodology as well as innovative water quality monitoring tools.
