Final Report - ECOMON (The current state of the Russian Marine Ecosystem Monitoring for the White Sea and its relevance to the EU Directive on Water Policy and UN Agenda 21)

Project ID: 3605
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

The White Sea ecosystem was monitored continuously for several years. Nevertheless, the heterogeneity in data collection, processing and presentation was apparent and did not allow for a reliable conclusion on the ecosystem status and dynamics.

The EU-funded ECOMON project aimed to establish a knowledge database, including recent findings, so as to create an integral portrait of the White Sea. The project defined the goals to be pursued by authorities and served as an informational document for adoption of the European standards.

This final activity report summarises ECOMON objectives and achievements. Monitoring activities are analysed and the applying regulatory framework is presented and projected to the White Sea case. Moreover, the document includes recommendations towards the development of a contemporary monitoring and data management system.
