Objective

Mismanagement of nutrients in the Danube Basin has led to severe ecological problems including deterioration of groundwater, surface waters and the Black Sea. These problems are related to social and economic issues (e.g. water supply, tourism, fishery, agriculture). This project will deliver a basis for a proper management of nutrients in the Danube Basin.
It will
(i) achieve an improved process understanding on the sources, pathways and sinks of nutrients in the Basin and on the Black Sea ecosystem effected by nutrient discharges,
(ii) develop, improve and combine quantitative models on nutrient emissions, their transport along the rivers and their impact on the Black Sea and
(iii) evaluate appropriate socio-economic tools for strategy implementation. Results of the project will be methodological approaches suitable for large river systems influencing sensitive seas as well as tools for decision making in nutrient management.
