EAMN

European Aquatic Modelling Network

COST Action 626

2001 – 2004


Project goals

EAMN

Project Goals

  • to define and develop integrated methods and models of assessing the interactions between aquatic flora and fauna and riverine habitats

    • on reach scale

    • provide transferability to a catchment scale

  • based on national funded projects


Description

EAMN

Description

  • Based on collaboration through International Aquatic Modelling Group (IAMG) since 1996

  • Bringing scientists and their models and methods together

  • Develop improved models and methods together and with end-user collaboration
