Duero River Basin Authority. Spain
October 2014 - December 2014
This study focused on the development of a method to measure, evaluate and monitor the changes produced in the quantitative and qualitative state of water bodies due to modernization projects in irrigation schemes.
The method was tested in two modernized irrigation areas in the Riaza Catchment, part of the Duero River basin, which allowed the design and validation of a set of hydrological, agronomic and environmental indicators.
The study was completed with the elaboration of different management scenarios, including an estimation of the effects of climate change for the area under study.
