Expected Results

MONITOOL project will give us a robust comparison of real data measured in DGTs and in water spot samples (metals) from across the Atlantic partnership area.

With this, we expect to find suitable EQSs for metals to allow the use of DGT's in WFD compliance monitoring and water chemical status classifications.

This could be useful to develop a framework for the further development of EQSs for other priority substances and emerging contaminants that cannot be included within the scope of this project.

All this knowledge will improve status assessments for metals that have greater scientific validity and will obtain relevant information to the EU to be potentially included in the revision of the Directive 2013/39/EU that is the support to MSFD and WFD.
