This project aims to evaluate the eutrophication and its long term impact on the marsh habitats of the Mondego and Mira rivers. With the purpose of identifying polluting sources a cartographic analysis and the quantification of lead and nitrogen isotopes on the different compartments of the system (sediment, water and plants) are in course.
