Inventive forecasting tools for adapting water quality management to a new climate

Project description

New prediction tools to assist water quality management

The water quality of rivers, lakes and reservoirs is severely affected by long-term climate change, extreme events and weather variations. As a result, there is a pressing need for instruments that anticipate the impacts of environmental changes, allowing water management to effectively safeguard water quality. Technological advances have led to new meteorological data products and innovative modelling instruments that have enabled reliable predictions for lake and river water quality on regional and global levels. The EU-funded inventWater project will establish a platform that provides advanced cross-disciplinary training to next-generation water specialists. The project will offer training in data science, climate, hydrology and freshwater ecology, focussing on the development and real-world application of inventive water quality predicting instruments that support fast and reliable decision-making and long-term adaptation policies.
