Project: Application of a methodology for assessment of sediments in unnavigable watercourses (partim : Biological assessment). Campaign III.

01-JUL-97 – 31-DEC-97

This is the third campaign of the project with the objective to validate the methodology, developed by AMINAL, for the assessment of sediments in unnavigable watercourses. For this the biological sediment quality of 90 samples is taken all over Flanders (Belgium). The assessment is based on the calculation of the Biotic Sediment Index (BSI) and the percentage of mentum deformations of Chironomid larvae.
