ISONITRATE Demonstration Project

ISONITRATE is a Life Demonstration Project which aims to demonstrate, to policy makers, the technical/economical feasibility of integrating the isotope approach as part of characterising water bodies and analysing pressure and impact of nitrate pollution, for a more effective implementation of environmental management measures in river basins.
