The ICP Waters database is updated 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. Data should be submitted using this Excel template. Before sending your data to NIVA, please first upload them via this online app to do a preliminary quality check of your data and review any issues identified. Cleaned templates can then be sent to NIVA for upload to the database.
Please send completed templates directly to the database administrator.
