process • 11 from 21 participants joint both meetings • Discussion on guidance for further SOE-data flow, updating the Eionet-water data flow (station selection probably some parameters, aggregation…)
Sections in guidance document • define common understanding on SoE-data stream in relation to compliance report under WFD and other directives • Review on existing monitoring guidance • Reporting sheets for SoE-data stream; based on Eionet water content structure/DD • Details on data handling and processing following the needs coming out of task 3 • Formulation of requirements and recommendation for WISE
Outcome of 2nd SOE-drafting group • criteria for SoER-water data flow (updating Eionet) have to be revisited and revised to make the data suitable for spatial and integrated analysis. • The new structure is planned to develop into the reporting sheets for the SOER-DG and have to be agreed there and in EIONET-water network • First draft available in Jan 2006
Outcome • Large parts of the meta information on site specification, physical characterisation and proxy pressures can be taken from other WFD related reporting activities (art. 3,5,8) • In terms of full SoE-assessments other determinands, (quantity, biolog. hydromorph. QElements, loads….) should be included into the SoE-data flow step by step and discussed in Drafting Group/Eionet.
Further steps • Next meeting Feb/March 2006 • Autumn meeting again back to back with Eionet-WS to keep the networks together
