What is being done and where
CIVIL SECTOR NEWS
Featured Article about one of the most successful civilian tracking activities,
More than 1,500 photos database from the last 1.5 years
Achieved with invaluable help of the local community
It is not rocket science
Alex Arenas known as "Alex Tortuga" (Left) and his community has been tracking for almost two years the sargassum phenomenon at Xcacel Turtle Sanctuary, in Mexico.
More than 1,500 dated and georeferenced photographs have been posted simply using Facebook.
It is not rocket science.
When Civil Population knows what must be achieved, creative solutions will rise at a speed that no other organizational figure can achieve.
Coming in March we will publish the whole article about How, we civilians, can build a clickable map just using available free resources.
Georeferenced and dated using common tools.
This is a simple but powerful example of civil participation transformed into a sustainable source of solutions.
Behind is Organization understood as natural science.
More than 10 million persons are directly affected by the Sargassum Phenomenon, in their communities, in 21 countries.
If you have something sustainable practices and services to share, let us know.
In this section, we will post the latest scientific public knowledges

Organization understood as a natural science allows us to follow a sustainable path to reach the collective interaction among countries, sectors, disciplines, and cultures.
It is an Organizational Rule that in the same proportion awareness grows, the phenomenon decreases.
Currently, we are working at the 1st stage: building a scientific frame that can be used by civilians and governments to design sustainable solutions without generating new problems.
With the help of SargNet community, we have started publishing qualified scientific papers as well as forecast reports scientifically supported and monitoring tools.
NOAA´s Coastwatch Tool is the best satellite tool for sargassum tracking, combined with Dr. Chumain Hu Forecast Reports, allow the scientific community to have models close to real scenarios.
Scientific Contents Classification so you can easily find/share.
