WP 5: Selecting sampling sites


To select a set of sampling sites of differing environmental character and assumed Ecological Status in order to incorporate both 'High' status reference sites and sites degraded to different degrees of severity.

Methodology/work description

The project consortium collectively will define the requirements of the sampling programme and the criteria for site selection. These will take account of the following considerations:

Consortium members shall select a shortlist of sites to be sampled in their own member states, according to the site types and stresses allocated to it. The definitive list of sampling sites shall be selected by the consortium as a whole, being mindful of the need for a balanced range of sites, collectively meeting the criteria set out above.
