Short description: R3 has rehosted the AquaTerra ONLINE INFORMATION SYSTEM (ATOIS). This is a detailed informational resource about a major EU river basin management project. It also provides comprehensive information about soil and water processes related to land contamination. It is an on-line decision support tool providing easily accessible technical information from the AquaTerra project. 
Long description: AquaTerra is an Integrated Project from the EU 6th Framework Programme. The five-year project began in 2004 and finished in March 2009, with its final conference in Tubingen, Germany. The project has aimed to produce high-quality scientific information on the interactions between soil, sediment, water, groundwater and air in the context of global change. It has always been anticipated that stakeholders involved with the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) across Europe would find the information generated by AquaTerra of particular value. AquaTerra involved 45 partners from 22 countries and during the course of the work it has produced a large volume of information, ranging from scientific publications and conference presentations to project deliverables and reports. The work has been undertaken within 10 sub-projects: HYDRO: Hydrological modelling and models of climate change BIOGEOCHEM: Characterisation of the transport and fate of pollutants in soil and sediment and their impact on water quality. TREND: Analysis of trends in biochemical processes over time FLUX: Analysis of the turnover and transfer of organic pollutants in the environment COMPUTE: Modelling of pollutant fate and transport at different scales BASIN: Case studies in selected sites in five European river basins (Brevilles, Danube, Ebro, Elbe and Meuse) MONITOR: Development and testing of new sampling and analytical techniques and emerging compounds INTEGRATOR: Integration and dissemination of results to wider audiences EUPOL: Linking AquaTerra science to policy demands KNOWMAN: Knowledge management and training
