|Issue Date:||2012||Journal:||Marine Pollution Bulletin||Abstract:||The Water Framework Directive, under the European Legislation, requires that all European waters, should reach a good ecological status by 2015. To achieve this goal, a phytoplankton monitoring network with monthly water samplings was established to evaluate the ecological quality, in the coastal waters of the Community of Valencia, and the collected data have allowed us to study the efficiency of the monthly campaigns of the monitoring network. With the results obtained in this research, we have designed a new monitoring strategy for the coastal waters of Valencia that for certain water bodies can mean lower sampling frequency. The new monitoring policy provides results as reliable as the previous strategy and allows a precise ecological classification of water bodies at a lower cost. The methodologies we have developed can be used in other monitoring networks and are not limited by geographic location or by the type of water body.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/45868||ISSN:||0025-326X||DOI:||10.1016/j.marpolbul.2012.05.026||Source:||Marine Pollution Bulletin [ISSN 0025-326X], v. 64 (8), p. 1637-1647|
