Environmental monitoring at the mouth of the Guadiana Estuary. The SIMPATICO is an autonomous system for water quality and current monitoring, installed at the mouth of the Guadiana Estuary (Southern Portugal-Spain border
The system is operational since March 2008, providing unique months-long time-series at high frequency (hourly and 15 min) of: Currents (every 80 cm along the water column); Water level; Water Quality: temperature, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, salinity, chlorophyll and pH
