    Ramses instruments used during fieldwork

    The purpose of Water Framework Directive of European Union is to create uniform evaluation system for inland waters and increase the quality of the water bodies.

    To achieve that goal, Tartu Observatory is collecting regular field data from Estonian lakes and coastal areas, in co-operation with foreign partners also from beyond, in order to create algorithms that can be used to derive necessary information from data collected with satellites, airborne machines and marine vessels.

    Our workgroup is a valued partner in several international projects.

    The workgroup members give regular lectures in University of Tartu and are supervising students with BSc, MSc and PhD thesis.
