How Satellite Earth Observation Can Help With Monitoring For The Water Framework Directive


  • cheap and automated monitoring for under-sampled lakes, combined with targeted sampling in case of unexpected changes
  • systems analysis, for which the spatial component is key
  • evaluation of the spatial effect of measures taken to improve water quality for the WFD as input for spatial ecological models
Satellite-based EO maps confirm that Saadjärv is usually a lake with low Chl a concentrations over the whole surface (example from June 18th 2020). Still, sometimes slightly elevated concentrations of Chl a can be detected in a spatial pattern (example from 28th August 2016).
