Typology of artificial and heavily modified water bodies, defined by the Rules on determing and classification for water bodies on surface water (Ur. l. RS 63/05, 26/06, 32/11): preparation and provision of expert basis for Water Framework Directive implementation

Tipologoja_umetnih (UVT)


Within this task AWB and HMWB, defined by the Rules on determing and classification for water bodies on surface water in Slovenia, were classified into existing or new ecological surface water types using existing or additional descriptors in accordance with Water Framework Directive. The suitability of AWB and HMWB classification was verified also with data on assemblages used for ecological status or potential assessment in accordance with Water Framework Directive.

    Duration of the project



    Expert bases for determining the priorities of the Republic of Slovenia in the field of environment and efficient use of resources and identification of the themes that are most suitable for co-financing from the LIFE program

    In the framework of the project task, we prepared guidelines on the thematic priorities from the Multi-annual LIFE work program for the period 2014–2017 in the priority area Environment and efficient use of resources, and Environmental management and information for Lot 1: water, including the marine environment. The thematic priorities...

    Remote sensing of large river hydromorphological characteristics and impact assessment on biotic communities

    The project’s aim is to identify and compare impacts of different stressors (hydromorphological alterations, pollution, land use), acting on different spatial scales (reach, segment, catchment), on benthic macroinvertebrate and fish communities in Slovenian large rivers, as well as to analyse the comparability between field survey and remote sensing based hydromorphological...
