Main Focus

The primary focus of the project is to gather information on the effects of climate change and demographic/social change of numerical modelling tools used in managing water quality in Ireland. The project will develop, adapt and incorporate the appropriate useful models into the systems used by the EPA in responding to the requirements of the Water Framework Directive.
