For her PhD thesis, Hanneke Vlek conducts research into the biological assessment of surface waters. Since the introduction of the European Water Framework Directive (WFD) in 2000, every EU member state is required to assess the effects of human activities on the ecological quality of all water bodies and indicate the level of confidence and precision of results provided by the monitoring programmes in their river basin management plans.
