Abstract

This report accompanies deliverable 3-1 of the URBEM project which is existing data on study sites in Europe. The six study sites chosen are:- Ouseburn, UK; Chaudanne, France; Glinščica, Slovenia; Wien, Austria; Weidigtbach, Germany. A site for Portugal is still to be selected. These sites represent urban rivers which have been affected by different engineering works and pollution sources. For each site a number of parameters have been identified for data collection which fall into five main categories:- hydraulic regime, channel geomorphology, cross sections, water chemistry, biology and social and economic wellbeing. A large set of data has been collected for most partners, however there a number of gaps in data for each site which will need to be addressed during the new monitoring phase. This will be achieved either by improving access to existing data and/or undertaking new monitoring. Recommendations for this are provided within the document.
