11 May 2023
Technical details

On the 2nd and 3rd of May research team from Latvian Institute of Aquatic Ecology visited project partners Gulbene municipality and collected samples in lakes Stameriena, Ludza, Pintela and Galgauskas.

Samples were obtained from water surface, sediments and beach sand and general water quality was measured. Big thanks to Gulbene Municipal Police and their inspector for securing water transport during the sampling. Despite a little rain the process went well and beautiful views could be enjoyed along the way.

Sampling will also take place in August and October, to see changes over the seasons.
