Action A.7: Development of a hydrographic model for Malta’s marine waters
This preparatory action is intended to design and propose an implementation plan for the setting up of an observing and numerical modelling framework for the Maltese Islands. The proposed systems are intended to be applied to Malta’s marine waters with a view to determine baseline hydrographical conditions for Maltese waters, serving to address the assessment processes and objectives for good environmental status of coastal and marine waters.

- KEYWORDS hydrographical models, Marine waters, modelling, land-sea interface, transboundary origin,
- RELATED ACTIONS C15, C16,
The results of this action are intended to develop monitoring processes to be implemented through associated action C.18 that shall be completed within the timeframe of the project. The monitoring strategies and programmes shall be used to inform monitoring processes on a National scale in the longer term. This would ensure implementation of monitoring processes that enable a holistic assessment of water status in Malta.
