Perceptual models on hydrological dynamics and water quality in temporary streams

Hydrometric data has been collected within the project for the seven test catchments. The data has been collected at least for the period from Summer 2003 until the revised end of the project in early 2006.

The Data are archived by catchment managers and centrally, it will be published as appropriate through the scientific literature.

The data collected are archived centrally in the tempQsim-data base, accessible via the project web-site

The data represent up to now a rare and unique collection of varying aspects in hydrology and water quality. There are no comparable situations known with a similar richness and diversity related to different conditions of catchment geography and anthropogenic pressure.

It is agreed that a) the use of the raw data will be restricted to the consortium partners, as they are partly complemented with individual data belonging to the data holding institutes or related enduser organisations, which makes a free dissemination difficult, b) the scientific reasonable use of the data is only possible within a given context of accompanying hydrological knowledge and c) the data provide a competition advantage for upcoming RTD activities. A copy of the data base is provided to the EC.

The use of these data will be predominantly within the ongoing research in the field of temporary streams on a billateral or multilateral basis by the project partners.

The public access to the information gathered is enabled via the scientific literature. Therefore a specific discussion of water quality dynamics is given in individual publications by describing the perceptual model for each study site.

Corresponding manuscripts are available for all study sites and will be published depending on the progress of the review process.
