The Thames Water-Blitz on NEW Freshwater Links website

The new WaterBlitz map is now live in a beta version! Watch the video on how to use the new map and analysis tool then visit through the Freshwater Links site.

Freshwater Links brings together multiple environmental projects with a citizen science component from across the River Thames catchment into a single online location. The Thames Water-Blitz, Riverfly Monitoring and the Evenlode Catchment Monitoring projects will all be linked by this exciting new website, designed and managed by Earthwatch’s Freshwater Watch team.

Freshwater Links will enhance geospatial resource sharing between citizen science initiatives, NGOs and government organisations. Visitors to Freshwater Links will be able to discover information, join in, and encourage ideas that will help to improve the quality of their local aquatic environments. Whether it is using or discovering national datasets, making new geographic outputs or simply gaining an understanding of the wellbeing of local aquatic environments, Freshwater Links will be the place to visit.

From the scientific point of view, there have been about 15 publications over the year based on the results of the project, see links below for recent publications that resulted from the programme:
