Details

Decision support systems are computer software combining data, models and knowledge to help decision-making in organisation. Such systems will be vital to support diagnosis of reasons for failure of river water bodies to achieve good ecological status as required by the Water Framework Directive, and for prioritising actions to improve the status of fish stocks in rivers.
