IRIDA: Innovative remote and ground sensors, data and tools into a decision support system for agriculture water management

Efficient agriculture water use is of crucial importance for water resources management. Evapotranspiration is an important part of the water cycle, as it is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land and ocean surface to the atmosphere. Consequently, accurately determining evapotranspiration (ET) is the first step for improving irrigation efficiency and productivity and for quantifying the ecosystem water balance.

NORRA: Development of data-modelling system and the decision support tool

The general principles of the water use and protection are established by the Water Act, which is based on the EU Framework Directive on water policy and the Framework Directive on the sea strategy in order to ensure sustainable development and the natural status of water, and keep the quality, amount and regime of surface and groundwater as unviolated by human activity as possible. The aim of both directives is to ensure or acquire a good water status of inland bodies of surface water and coastal waters by 2015 and for the sea by the year 2021.
