Within the framework of this project for monitoring meteorological and water quality parameters, BEC provides support to the Region of Western Macedonia – Florina Regional Unit to promote rational use of irrigation waters by farmers through on-line consulting and updating of existing meteorological and hydrological stations.
It has evaluated existing meteorological and hydrological stations for pertinent functions including:
– Operation of sensors by recommended procedures from the manufacturer.
– Determination of accuracy of measurements within the limits of WMO based on standard procedures.
– Evaluation of the adequacy of stations relative to project aims.
– Control methods for data transmission data and compatibility within projectaims.
Based on the project results and evaluation, measures have been proposed to improve and update existing meteorological and hydrological stations.
Finally,a supporting system for decision making about the irrigation crops has been created via a telemetry network and this software was delivered in electronic format for use as an on-line supporting system.
