EOMORES was a Horizon 2020 project aimed at creating a commercially viable, novel, precise, and potentially more cost-effective system for the monitoring of inland and coastal waters, using Earth Observation (EO) alongside other monitoring methods.
Optical in situ data was combined with Sentinel-based EO data, while both were used as input for modelling within EOMORES in order to predict future variations in water quality.
An underlying mission within EOMORES has been promoting the ground-breaking benefits EO has to offer in assessing the quality of inland and coastal waters. The EOMORES products address the imminent need for implementing efficient and homogeneous solutions by Member States, dictated by one of the most ambitious pieces of environmental legislation in Europe: the Water Framework Directive, but also by the political momentum and the growing societal awareness of environmental protection.
Our role as leaders of the Dissemination and Service Evolution work package was to:
Evenflow is also supporting the commercial roll-out of the EOMORES services after the end of the project.
