The map below aims to provide a geographic overview of ongoing LifeWatch related activities. For now the map only displays the current position of the RV Simon Stevin in real-time (red arrow) on the Belgian part of the North Sea (red line). Below the map a real-time list of activities is provided. The list is continuously updated as new operations are registered. For now the list includes: research activities on board the RV Simon Stevin, new or updated taxa in the World Register of Marine Species, content added to the coastal wiki articles, etc.
