Lesson 10. Assessing ecological status according to the WFD
Lakes are valuable resources whose protection in the European Union is regulated by the Water Framework Directive (WFD). This forces Member States to systematically monitor all natural and artificial lakes with surface area larger than 0.5 km2. based on multiple components and parameters. Some of these can be determined by remote sensing, and this lesson shows how we can use satellite data to assess the ecological status oflakes in southern Sweden.
