Abstract

A novel approach to water risk control is presented, realised by environmental monitoring with integrated technology. This system named Water Risk Management in EuRope (WARMER), is a project within the 6th Framework Programme. It aims to create an extended system for on-line water quality monitoring with the purpose of risk management, integrating mixed technology in the areas of semiconductors, analytical chemistry, micro-fluidic systems, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), remote sensing and extensive networking of environmental water monitoring data. Based on this multidisciplinary assumption, the paper describes the progress in sensors, data extraction and processing, satellite water observation, networking of monitoring data, and hardware realisation of the system. The state of the art is briefly presented, followed by results obtained so far, and perspectives of future development. Prospects for generic use of the system, in European policy of sustainable management of water resources, are presented in the conclusion.
