SIMONA Sediment-quality Information, Monitoring and Assessment System to support transnational cooperation for joint Danube Basin water management
The main objective of SIMONA is to respond to the current demand for effective and comparable measurements and assessments of sediment quality in surface waters in the DRB by delivering a ready-to-deploy Sediment-quality Information, Monitoring and Assessment System to support transnational cooperation for joint DRB water management.
The main result of SIMONA will be the improved, harmonized and coordinated sediment quality monitoring of water body status in the Danube River Basin. Together with experts trained in sediment quality management by SIMONA, the project will also generate international cooperation between stakeholders concerning the monitoring of HSs concentration in water, in sediments, and in biota. The immediate and middle term benefit of the project will be a transparent method supported by the SIMONA-tool for sediment quality monitoring that will encourage cooperation in transnational water management.
