Technical Report
Full-text available
The aim of this report was to develop the principles of designing the Polish-Ukrainian and Estonian-Latvian transboundary groundwater monitoring network in relation to the needs of assessing their quantitative and chemical status. The recommendations were developed taking into account the potential of the existing national networks and the requirem...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The aim of the document is to create a conceptual understanding of the hydrogeological processes and flow dynamics across the national borders in two different pilot territories - Polish-Ukrainian and Latvian-Estonian border area. Within the framework of this report, assessment of transboundary groundwater resources, as well as the determination of...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Joint methodology for identification and assessment of GDTEs was developed to identify GDTEs in trans-boundary Gauja-Koiva river basin (funded by Interreg EstLat project “GroundEco”). The methodology and best GDTEs assessment techniques were tested in two pilot areas – Matsi spring fen in Estonia and Kazu leja valley in Latvia. Finally, recommendat...
Poster
Full-text available
A project that aims to enhance sustainable management of common groundwater resources and associated ecosystems in the transboundary Gauja-Koiva river basin (Latvia-Estonia). (1) selection of GDTE types (2) additional criteria in selecting GDTEs (3) identification of GDTEs in Gauja–Koiva river basin (4) quantity assessment and quality assessment...

Project
The aim of the project is to promote coordinated management and integrated protection of transboundary groundwater by creating a geoinformation platform (an integrated GIS modelling environment for the creation of digital hydrogeological maps and simulations of the quantity and quality of transboundary groundwater). As a part of the project, two cross-border clusters will be created, representing two geographical regions: Baltic and Eastern Europe. The project No.2018-1-0137 benefits from a € 2.447.761 grant Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation.

Archived project
The project aims to promote sustainable management of shared groundwater resources in a trans-boundary area and implement EU Water policies, mainly Water Framework Directive. The goal will be achieved by (1) development of a common approach for status assessment of groundwater bodies, (2) implementation and testing of developed approach in the Latvian-Estonian trans boundary Gauja-Koiva and Salaca-Salatsi river basin districts, (3) development of common understanding about groundwater dependent ecosystem management, (4) raising public awareness and interest in groundwater management and protection.

Archived project
To develop joint methodology for identification and assessment of groundwater dependent terrestrial ecosystems (GDTEs) in trans-boundary Gauja-Koiva (Latvia - Estonia) river basin. Developed methodology will be tested in two pilot areas (EE and LV) to propose best GDTE monitoring approaches to be included into national groundwater monitoring programmes. Pilot studies will consist of water quality and level monitoring, vegetation analysis, development of conceptual models and development and testing of low-cost sensors, thermal imaging and ground penetrating radar studies etc. Find more about project and newest project results/events at bit.ly/GroundEco Project No. Est-Lat62 is financed by Interreg V - A Estonia - Latvia Cross - border cooperation programme (www.estlat.eu).
