Work Item
Indicator codes: SEBI 016
SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT This indicator will be improved as more countries implement Eionet-Water. More time series data would improve the data set particularly if from Southern countries. There are gaps in river characteristic information from some countries. Also many countries did not report all the requested summary statistics such as the median. Fill gaps related to catchment pressures. Some countries have used Corine land cover data to provide proxy indicators of pressures. It is expected that this aspect will improve significantly during the next year as new updated Corine data will be available, and as work is undertaken by the ETC/WTR and ETC/LUSI to fill in the gaps in the pressure indicators. Countries will also be designing and/or modifying their monitoring programmes for rivers, lakes and groundwater bodies over the coming years as a requirement of the WFD. This should increase the extent of information potentially available to the EEA through the Eionet‑Water process which will be integrated and extended into the Water Information System for Europe (WISE).
