Project CRIS opening conference

Project CRIS opening conference was held on the 20 November at the Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas in Katowice. Dr Jan Skowronek, Director of IETU welcomed participants. In the first part of the conference the reasons for the implementation of the river basin information system were presented. The speeches included: a set of water management problems resulting from water use and scattered information on the basin status and a concept of the CRIS information system aimed to support the water management at a basin scale. It is assumed that the CRIS system will help to assess the impact of anthropogenic factors (e.g. land use, water extraction, wastewater discharges, wet and dry deposition) on the water availability and status. The system will also show how dynamic meteorological conditions affect the water cycle and indirectly the water status.

The second part of the conference was a workshop aimed at the identification of potential end-users needs and strong and weak points of the project concept (SWOT analysis). The workshop was concluded with a brief discussion.
