ABSTRACT

This paper has been accomplished in the framework of Diminish Project
(LIFE03 ENV/ RO/000539) within the Life Environment Program. In accord
with the Water Framework Directive the nutrient management is a decisive
factor for increase the water quality. In this respect the Diminish on-line
system, based on GIS database and modeling approach and using Open-GIS
technology, allows diminishing uncertainties related to basin management. The
Bistrita River (283 km length, 7039 km2) had proven to be specifically sensitive
to human activities, being one of the main tributaries of the Siret River,
which is an important affluent of the Danube River. The database structure
has been planned for the study, evaluation and management of information,
as well as for the assessment of damages occurred by pollution effects. The
dedicated GIS database concerns different type and category of information
related to meteorological, hydrological and hydro-geological data, pollution
sources, water quality data, administrative boundaries, monetary valuation
of environmental costs, outputs of mathematical models. The thematic layers
have been extracted from the classical mapping support, recent satellite images
(e.g. the hydrographic network, land cover/land use) or by field measurements
(portable spectrophotometer multi-parameter and GPS technology).

Keywords: GIS database, nutrient pollution, management system, water
quality.
