the Explore2070 project aimed at evaluating the possible impacts of future climate and socio-economic changes on water bodies (surface water, groundwater and coastal water) and biodiversity, in metropolitan France and overseas departments (Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana, and Réunion Island). The project was managed by the French Ministry of Ecology (MEDDTL) and gathered several consultancies and research institutes to establish a general overview of the expected evolutions by 2070. Through both the extent and the variety of the project’s objectives, Explore2070 will provide answers to many questions raised by managers and better evaluate the stakes related to these evolutions.

This is a technical innovative solution consisting in coupling both water sampling devices, pesticide analysis and hydro-chemical model.

In order to help in managing water quality in rural areas, an integrated tools is being developed that couple several technologies and methods. On the field, water quality monitoring is carrying out by means of a classical hydrological instrumentation and a recent integrative sampling method such as passive samplers. This allow to quantify the water and pesticide fluxes at least at the runoff event scale.
