Welcome to the AQEM project website

"The Development and Testing of an Integrated Assessment System for the Ecological Quality of Streams and Rivers throughout Europe using Benthic Macroinvertebrates. Acronym: AQEM"

The AQEM consortium has developed an assessment system for streams in eight European countries based on benthic macroinvertebrates.

The project has been finished in February 2002.

The development of the ASTERICS software (formerly AQEM River Assessment Programme) has been taken over by other projects.

On our webpage you find basic information about the project, about the participants, about the results of the project, products, publications and the most recent software versions.
