Abstract: In order to evaluate the Final Intercalibration Register of waterbodies established by November 2004, JRC-EEWAI carried out an in-depth analysis based on metadata submitted electronically to the JRC. The Final Intercalibration Register contained 1500 sites of all surface water categories from 27 countries. Most of the river and lake types contained a sufficient number of sites to carry out the intercalibration exercise, but several coastal and transitional water types were represented only by one site. Large number of outliers found in geographic coordinates and typology parameters needed to be checked. Results of the metadata analysis were presented at the WG2A Ecological Status meeting on 15-16 March 2005.
