Summary of the project
Data provided by the students

We will carry out measurements of the water quality of the indicated areas and look for a relationship with atmospheric pollution by analysing satellite data and our own measurements carried out by the students.

Realizaremos mediaciones de la calidad del agua de los espacios indicados y buscaremos una relación con la contaminación atmósferica mediante análisis de datos de satelítes y de mediciones propias realizadas por los estudiantes.

Main results and Conclusions

In our city, the quality of the tap water is very good, but the quality of the water from the river, the estuary and the reservoir is not.

En nuestra ciudad la calidad del agua del grifo es muy buena, no así la del río, la ría y el pantano.
