Sediment-quality Information, Monitoring and Assessment System to support transnational cooperation for joint Danube Basin water management
DTP2-093-2.1 – SIMONA
SIMONA is European project under the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme (DTP), cofinanced by the European Union. The SIMONA partnership has 17 full partners and 12 associated partners, which is a very balanced and strong representation of the whole Danube River Basin (DRB).
SIMONA project responds to the current demand for the effective and comparable measurements and assessments of sediment quality in surface waters in the DRB by delivering a ready-to deploy Sediment-quality Information, Monitoring and Assessment System to support transnational cooperation for joint DRB water management. The system is a functional composition of sediment (1) sampling, (2) laboratory analysis, (3) evaluation protocols and (4) SIMONA-tool (online IT application) that are applicable at local and European levels, thus actively contributes to achieving the WFD sediment quality monitoring and chemical status assessment requirements. The main result of SIMONA will be the improved, harmonized and coordinated sediment quality monitoring of water body status in the Danube River Basin.
