Green and digital transition in river basin management (Green-Digi-Basin)


Green-Digi-Basin project is targeted to find the most effective green solutions for the boreal-subarctic river basins and improve existing calculations for river connectivity, i.e. nutrient and carbon loads to surface water systems from different land uses.

Project is developing a concept called Green-Digi-Basin

Green= Aiming to study the effects of climate and land-use changes to the river basins, nutrients, suspended matter and carbon loads, and study the greener, ecosystem-based solutions for managing the upcoming challenges.

Digi= aiming to create a digital twin of river basins, in particular three supersites (Vantaanjoki river, Oulanka River and Tana river), to develop next generation modeling research for fluvial environments in the context of water amount and quality.

Basin= Wide-ranging expertise from peatland & ground water hydrology to fluvial dynamics & state-of-the-art 3D mapping and modeling of the river basin and the catchment area.

Connection to Freshwater Competence Centre

Green-Digi-Basin project is closely connected to the Freshwater Competence Centre which has two other projects as well:
