Project abstract

The FRESHMON consortium will develop a new service-line for the frequent provision of Earth Observation based products for water quality monitoring, combining in situ and hydrodynamic modelling components and integrating the information in a GIS. The users targeted by FreshMon are international, national and state-wide authorities, who have a mandate for coordinating the implementation of the WFD.

Additional users are national and international private entities, who are dealing with water quality and related issues. By providing high-resolution spatial geo-information on water constituents a wide group of user needs is addressed, that cannot be satisfied by existing GMES Core services.
