  • The water framework directive final intercalibration register for lakes, rivers, coastal and transitional waters: overview and analysis of metadata

Abstract

By October 2004, the Final Intercalibration Register was successfully established following the procedure described in the Intercalibration guidance document agreed by the water direwctors in December 2002. In order to evaluate the consistency of the register with the Water Framework Directive (WFD) provisions and the compatibility of sites presented for intercalibration, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) carried out an in-depth analysis based on metadata electronically submitted to the European Commission via the web upload system established by the JRC for the compilation of the Intercalibration Register. In November 2004, the Intercalibration Register contained 1500 surface water sites from 27 countries. Rivers were represented by the biggest number of sites, followed by lakes, coastal waters and transitional waters.
