About TRivers

The LIFE+ TRivers project will provide European river basin authorities and relevant stakeholders with an operationally tested software tool (TREHS, Temporary Rivers’ Ecological and Hydrological Status) which is designed to adequately implement the Water Framework Directive in this kind of water bodies. Based on a predictive model of the evolution of a river’s characteristics over time, the tool will detect if temporariness is due to natural characteristics of the river, to climatic changes or to human impacts. It is also expected to help managers select appropriate sampling dates and use the right methods to determine ecological status. The results will contribute significantly to improving the management of temporary rivers and to increasing their recognition in society and in policies related to water and biodiversity.

The LIFE+ TRivers project (Implementing the Water Framework Directive to temporary rivers: tools for the assessment of their ecological status) is co-funded by the European Union LIFE financial instrument and coordinated by the FEM research group at the University of Barcelona.
