Operating Organisation
Site Description
The AAA-LTER platform focuses on agricultural and urban landscape The objective of the proposed LTSER structure is to provide an internationally open, attractive and recognized scientific observatory of human/nature interactions. Through its representativeness of environmental issues of Atlantic terrestrial and aquatic landscapes and the complementarity of its eLTER sites, the AAA-LTSER is a unique showcase for decision makers to help them in defining regional decision frameworks and sustainable policies, and to promote technical and social innovation as well as science education. The AAA-LTSER embraces regional social-ecological dimensions whose diversity of landscape use and planning covers a unique set of interconnected aquatic and terrestrial systems. lt concentrates multiples supports and cofunding from the European Union, the State, the Brittany region and local institutions to improve and maintain high density of sensors, equipment and social studies that are crucial for better understanding human/nature interactions and train the next generation of scientists to work at these interfaces in inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches. To cover the major regional environments and interfaces (continent/ocean, urban/rural, subsurface/surface), the AAA-LTSER platform is founded on existing and complementary sites. They represent the different terrestrial, transitional and marine landscape structures, features and dynamics that shape this intensive anthropogenic region, and their related social-ecological issues. All these sites involve end-users and policy makers seeking for advanced understanding of social and ecological interactions and the definition, validation and promotion of sustainable policies.
