In-situ monitoring of the ecological status in the basin and coastal zone.

Objectives:

1)      Assessment of the ecological quality of the under study water bodies and identify problems and structural failures due to existing indicators and hydroecological models
2) Develop an appropriate information infrastructure and expertise, with the aim of optimizing the existing ecological indicators and models.

Tasks:

Task 1. Monitoring hydrological and physicochemical conditions in the basin with in-situ measurements and sampling.

Task 2. Monitoring of biological parameters and habitats in the watershed and coastal zone with field measurements and sampling.

Task 3. Evaluation of the ecological status of water bodies using preexisting ecological indicators
