Evaluation service for river basin management

How can the most cost-effective measures be identified to help in assessing the status of a waterbody and the management practices needed to achieve good ecological status?

The effect of different combinations of measures on loading and the status of a waterbody can be assessed by the modelling tools developed by Finnish Environment Institute SYKE.

Models describe the most essential information affecting the nutrient cycle in the river basin, transport of nutrients from soil to the watershed and retention in watersheds. In the process, the costs of river basin management can be evaluated as well as the benefits for recreational use from improving the water quality.

 

We offer the following services
