Aquatic Pollutant Hydrological Pathway Assessment

(Completed in Collaboration with Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin)

The EU Water Framework Directive requires member states to develop and implement river basin district (RBD) management plans.  Irish hydromorphological and geological conditions make this task particularly challenging.  This multidisciplinary study proposes integrating existing research/data with further focused data acquisition employing proven techniques, hitherto rarely employed in Ireland, to better constrain semi-distributive hydrological models, thus improving our understanding of the pathways transporting particulate and dissolved constituents.
