Developing and optimizing models and indices to assess the ecological status. Study of interaction between human activities and ecological quality.

Objectives:

1) The creation of a classification system for the hydromorphological quality of the study area
2) Assessment of the impact of human activities and climate on the quality and quantity of water in the study area and the quantification of these interactions
3) Optimization and development of bio-indices for assessing the ecological quality

Tasks:

Task 1. Hydrometeorological and hydrochemical simulation of the basin. Impact analysis of climate scenarios, past changes in land use and water management practices.

Task 2. Development of hydroecological models and optimized indices and statistical correlation with individual hydrological and hydrochemical scenarios. Identification of hydrological and hydrochemical thresholds that significantly alter the biological quality.
