Harmonising quality assurance in model based catchment and river basin management

Objective

The WFD challenges water managers to cope with a complex of problems. Increased problem scale and an integrated approach force organisations to co-operate. This raises the need to couple models and to incorporate socio-economic aspects. Sound coupling of models requires a widely accepted, transparent methodology. The project will develop a European methodology for modelling and simulation in water management, covering both generic and domain specific modelling activities. The methodology and derived guidelines are accessible by software tools, also allowing monitoring of the process and facilitating quality assurance. The methodology and tools are extensively tested in both multidomain and integrated case studies; covering geographical conditions and modelling cultures, involving various stakeholders and end users. An exploitation infrastructure guarantees long term support and future use by the entire community of water managers.
