The goal of this component is to develop an international operational water quality information systems based on Earth observation
This component will integrate water quality data from multiple sources in a timely manner and through data assimilation of Earth observations with other sources of data such as water quantity, hydrodynamics, biogeochemical modelling, generate higher level information products such as trends and anomalies and additional “value-added” products such as fluxes and flows
This component encompasses both the
collation and development of in-situ water
quality databases and remote-sensed data,
particularly space-borne data.
The component addresses both flowing and
static water bodies, recognizes differing
approaches to assessing their water quality
and the linkages/interface between them.

The ultimate goal of the Diversity II Project is to support the implementation of the new 2011-2020 biodiversity strategic plan of the Convention of Biological Diversity.
The specific Objectives of the Diversity II Project are to provide for selected key parameters, status maps, associated change maps, status indicators and trend indicators. These key parameters for inland waters are availability of freshwater and quality of freshwater, reflected in its water constituents such as chlorophyll-a and/ or suspended matter concentration, as well as by its temperature.
The products shall be provided on a global scale by producing results for at least 300 large perennial inland waters and covering a time range from 2002 to 2012.
Project Questions the fall of 2010 to assemble an international group of investigators with interest in and access to global lake temperature records (both in situ and satellite-based).
From C. Brockmann, 2012 the fall of 2010 to assemble an international group of investigators with interest in and access to global lake temperature records (both in situ and satellite-based).

Coincident with the technological advances……………… satellite remote sensing
Education programs and capacity building through new demonstration project initiatives need to be promoted.
This important recommendation emphasizes the need for strong linkages between the entities that produce the data and the end users. This relationship will ultimately determine the success of these tools for future water resource management
