Ecosystem Study

The State of health of aquaticecosystems is directly linked to the future of the planet and of humanity itself, from the local to the global scale. This concept covers the main European directives concerning water and the different aspects of its implementation, both in continental and marine environments.

In ECOHYDROS we focus on providing solutions to the multiple problems that arise in the management of ecosystem health, under an integrative perspective that recognizes the interdependencies between the quantity and quality of the resource and between the functioning of the ecosystem and the anthroposphere. Using the best available techniques, we evaluate the ecological status and diagnose alterations in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, ports and bays and coastal areas.
