Methodology and parameters measured

Sampling is carried out at the different locations following coherent sampling protocols and the results are stored in the Database of the IEO (SIRENO), from where they are available to all the researchers of the programme. Results are published in international and national journals as well as in monographs (e.g. PhD Thesis, reports, etc.).

The following graph shows, within each category of study, the parameters that are analyzed.
