Description 
Summary

The aim of the project is the assessment of present ecological statement and the pollution sources identifying. The data set represents the logistic, scientific and practical support to find the best ways and possibilities for ecological recovery to include the area in the specifically regime of the integrated coastal management at the Romanian Black sea littoral, according with present European legislation harmonized to the national conditions. In water samples were determined: - pH - potentiometer- salinity Mohr method - dissolved oxygen Winkler method- ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, phosphates according to STAS, Water Quality Protection- dry substance, organic substance Manescu method- proteins -Agatova method- carbohydrates - Agatova method- lipids -Beleaieva method In sediments were determined: - ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, phosphates - in watery extract - according to STAS, Water Quality Protection- dry substance, organic substance - Manescu method- proteins - watery extract - Agatova method- carbohydrates - watery extract- Agatova method- lipids - extract in organic solvent Keats method In the aim: -to elaborate and implement the Management Plan for Sinoe lakes as part of Integrated Coastal Zone Management, -to harmonize the European Directives for coastal waters to the national legislation.
