The ICP Waters database is updated each summer, beginning in mid-June when the Programme Centre in Oslo issues a “call for data” to the Focal Centres in participating countries. The programme collects data concerning water chemistry, fish and invertebrates. Further details are given below and in the ICP Waters manual.
The list of water chemistry parameters considered by the programme is shown below. If possible, data should be submitted using this Excel template, which provides a basic level of quality control.
Please send completed templates directly to the database administrator.
