Water Framework Directive: Development Of A Methodology For The Characterisation Of Unpolluted Groundwater

Final Report (2002-W-DS/7-M1) - Buss et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

The principal aim of this project was to develop a methodology for the derivation of the natural background quality for Irish groundwater bodies (it was not the intention to determine the composition of pristine groundwater bodies). International groundwater characterisation methodologies were also reviewed.

Water Framework Directive: Characterisation Of Reference Conditions And Testing Of Typology Of Rivers

Final Report - ERTDI Report 31 - Kelly-Quinn et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

A survey of 50 sites previously classified as high quality by the EPA, to determine whether they were of high ecological status (and thus could be used as reference conditions) and to use these spatial reference sites to develop the river typology for the Water Framework Directive.

Endocrine Disruptors In The Irish Aquatic Environment - Final Report

Final Report (2000-MS-2-M2)- Tarrant et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

A study that asks whether Irish rivers contain estrogenic compounds. If so, at what concentrations? Are these levels likely to pose a threat to aquatic ecosystems, particularly wild fish? Is there a risk to drinking water supplies?

Nutrient Levels And The Zebra Mussel Population In Lough Key - Final Report

Final Report (2000-MS-5-M1) - Lucy et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

This study aims to quantify the total number and biomass of zebra mussels and assess changes to the population during the course of the study. Relevant water parameters and phytoplankton samples were analysed; direct ecological changes were also noted during the project.

ERTDI Report 34 - Synthesis Report - Lucy et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

A study to quantify the total number and biomass of zebra mussels and to assess any changes to the population during the course of the study. Relevant water parameters and phytoplankton samples were analysed; direct ecological changes were also noted during the project.

Eutrophication From Agricultural Sources: A Comparison Of SWAT, HSPF And SHETRAN/GOPC Phosphorus Models For Three Irish Catchments Final Report

Final Report (2000-LS-2.2.2-M2) - Nasr et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

Report on the use of modelling non-point phosphorus loss from rural catchments in terms of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) objectives. The study focuses on physically based catchment-scale models which to date have not been applied to model phosphorus losses in Ireland.

Evaluation Of The Use Of The Sodium Dominance Index As A Potential Measure Of Acid Sensitivity - Final Report

Final Report (2000-LS-3.2.1a-M2) - Cruikshanks et al , January 2013

Year: 2013

Evaluates the efficacy of the SDI approach to site designation under Irish conditions. The water chemistry of 257 sites across Ireland were examined during base flow. A further 65 sites were sampled at base and elevated flow, and more detailed hydrological events were monitored at a smaller number of sites.
