Techreport Reference 4 Decades of Belgian Marine monitoring: Uplifting historical data to today’s needs
Contamination, eutrophication and acidification (MSFD descriptors) are intensely studied in the Belgian Coastal Zone (BCZ) since 1970. The use of historic data in long-term analyses has some major drawbacks: unavailability of the (meta)data and inconsistencies in spatial resolution, frequency, measurement techniques and storage. BMDC (RBINS) and VMDC (VLIZ), both NODCs, integrated all sources, its data and metadata in databases and updated the catalogues. The data are further uplifted by means of high tech methods for intense quality-check, intercalibration and valorisation of the integrated data sets and finally the assessment of environmental changes. A central data portal is under development, where the project data of the two NODCs will be made publically accessible. The case study on contaminants in sediment show the robustness of using Al and Fe as normalizers.

Unpublished Reference 4 Decades of Belgian Marine Monitoring: Uplifting historical data to today’s needs - WP5 Ocean Acidification
There is a clear relation between pH and eutrophication, ocean acidification (increase CO2 in air), S-N atmospheric deposition and oligotrophication. The compiled datasets of pH show the seasonal dynamics of high pH in summer versus low pH in winter. Plotted time trends indicate a link to the stop of land-input of phosphates in the end of the ‘80s. An overall decrease in methane concentrations, salinity, temperature and wind speed is observed in the BCZ. It should be studied whether this is related to long-term climate changes.

Unpublished Reference 4 Decades of Belgian Marine MONitoring: Uplifting historical data to today’s needs - WP2 Data Management
The data management team is now developing the central data portal, where all data stored in different databases (ie. at BMDC and VLIZ), will be made publicly accessible. This is a pilot for both data centers.

Inproceedings Reference 25 years of ground subsidence related to groundwater pumping for breweries in Belgium
Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) is a valuable technique for studying ground deformation in Belgium and providing more information on their spatial and temporal patterns. In this work, about 700 SAR images of different tracks from the European satellites ERS (1992-2001), ENVISAT (2003-2010), SENTINEL 1 (2014-2018) were processed. TerraSAR-X data covering the time span 2012-2014 and the area of Brussels were processed as well. A mapping of the annual average velocity of the PS of the entire period highlighted already known ground movements discovered during country scale levelling campaigns. But thanks to its millimetre precision, it permitted to highlight new movements that were not identified before. Seven large subsidence or uplifting areas can be spotted from the velocity map. From north to south, the regions facing ground movements are: The West-Coast, Antwerp and along the Schelde river and estuary, the Limburg Campine coal mines basin, Merchtem Londerzeel, the cities of Brussels and Liège as well as a large area related to the Tournai Mons-Charleroi coal mines basin. The purpose of this work is to make an overview of the situation (observations, first interpretations) of these ground movements. The highest positive (uplift), 20 to 25 mm/year and negative (subsidence) -17 to -20 mm/year velocity values are recorded around the former Limburg coal mines areas. The movements are closely linked to the groundwater extraction needed during the exploitation time and the recharge of the mining aquifer occurring at the end of the pumping. Among the seven highlighted zones, in Merchtem 25 Km NW of Brussels, a ground subsidence (-3 mm/year on average) is occurring since the beginning of the ERS acquisitions in 1992. Through the time (ERS, ENVISAT, TerraSAR-X and SENTINEL 1) the subsidence pattern reduces his extent and is replaced by an uplift due to the raise of the water table. Piezometers located in the deep Cambro-Silurian aquifer show a clear recharge of this aquifer since the late 1990’s. The subsidence is finally reduced to a zone where three breweries are very active and pumping groundwater for the production in the Ledo-Paniselian aquifer and in the Cambro-Silurian as process water. The Stella Artois brewery located in Leuven 30 Km E of Brussels is facing a ground subsidence as well clearly visible with the PSI data.
