Reducing the load from catchment to the Baltic sea – Waterchain final seminar


On the 23rd of May 2018, the final seminar of the Central Baltic region project Waterchain will take place in Tallinn, Estonia. During the seminar, researchers, experts and specialists from Estonia, Finland, Sweden and Latvia will highlight the results of the research of new approaches for reduction of inflows and hazardous substances to the Baltic Sea.

The water and remote sensing researchers and experts from the Institute for Environmental Solutions (IES) will showcase the coupling of modern remote sensing observations and in situ data to fill the knowledge gaps on the nutrient concentration in waterbodies and spatial distribution, thus helping to develop more advanced nutrient reduction strategies.  IES’s researchers also will share good practice of organising the Summer school on lake ecology and management. As a part of the summer school, researchers together with locals and other stakeholders developed a sustainable lake management plan.

The seminar is a part of the project “Pilot watersheads as a practical tool to reduce the harmful inflows into the Baltic Sea” (Acronym – WATERCHAIN) No CB50. It is financially supported by the ERDF Central Baltic Interreg IV Programme 2014 – 2020 and co-funded by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development of the Republic of Latvia.
