Establishment & operation of real time water quality monitoring stations in Amvrakikos Gulf
OIKOS Ltd was the scientific supervisor and coordinator of the establishment and the control of the operation of six (6) automatic stations that were installed in Amvrakikos Gulf in order to monitor the water quality of the area's lagoons and of the Louros river. In specific, one is situated in the Louros river, one in Tsiopeli lagoon, three in Rodia and Tsoukalio lagoons, one in Logarou lagoon and one transmitter mast in Salaora.
The aim of the project is to monitor the aquatic abiotic parameters of the lagoons (such as pH, salinity, oxygen).
Establishment and operation of an automatic system for the measurements of water parameters in Evros Delta
OIKOS Ltd was the scientific supervisor and coordinator of the establishment and the control of the operation of a monitoring system installed inside and outside the Drana lagoon area, Northern Greece. This system included four automatic monitoring stations for the measurement of the qualitative water parameters.
The water monitoring stations constantly give data concerning the conditions that prevail in the lagoon and the associated dikes, in order to (i) monitor the restoration process of the lagoon and (ii) avoid possible pollution hazards.
Establishment and operation of automatic monitoring stations in Strofylia and Kotychi lagoons
OIKOS Ltd was the scientific supervisor and coordinator of the establishment and the control of the operation of four (4) automatic monitoring stations of water parameters in Strofylia and Kotychi lagoons, Western Greece. Two stations were applied in Kotychi lagoon and the other two stations in Prokopos lagoon and provide data about the physical water parameters, whereas another one is also recording meteorological / hydrologic data.
The automatic monitoring stations give continuous information on the conditions that prevail in the lagoons. In this way, the timely detection of problems and the direct information on the prevailing conditions is possible.
The collection of data is particularly useful at the planning of lagoons management and protection.
