The Danube River is the most international river in Europe, its course running across 19 countries and four capitals. After a journey of 2860 km in which 80% of the European hydrographic basin is adsorbed, the river empties into the Black Sea through a magnificent delta, the youngest European territory.
Danube Delta is one of the biggest wetlands in the world, Wetland of International Importance, under Ramsar Convention, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site.
Monitoring and conservation works have been initiated in the last decades, and the technological progress brought by the Earth Observation technologies facilitates the study and analysis of the area.
