PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project topic is the synchronized methodology development for monitoring and modeling of physical, chemical, biological and morphodynamic parameters defining the status of major rivers and reservoirs in Serbia. The link between measurements and numerical modeling will provide reliable data for model establishment, calibration and verification. The development of 1D, 2D, and 3D models (and their connection into a chain of models) allows not only to simulate (replay) historical events, but also to predict effects of future water regime changes on the environment.

The aim of biological investigations is to evaluate the influence of hydromorphological changes on aquatic ecosystems, which is the basis for defining the set of effective indicators for the assessment of the level of hydromorphological degradation based on Biological Quality Elements (BQE). The investigations comprise BQE that are obligatory according to EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC - WFD). Research of fish will involve the analysis of qualitative and quantitative structure of ichthyocenosis in rivers and reservoirs and the estimation of the interactions of populations, hydro morphological changes and the quality of water. The effects of managing the fish fund on the status of the water eco-system will be analyzed. A methodology for improved design and maintenance of hydraulic structures will be developed, having in mind robust and more efficient structures that will improve ecological conditions of rivers and reservoirs.
