This presentation, entitled "EO for EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) - Status assessment for coastal and lakes water quality", was held during the Finnish Space Workshop on 20 January, 2020.

During the 3rd WFD status assessment, Finland utilized EO estimates on Chl-a and Secchi depth for reporting on more than 2000 lakes and 250 coastal water bodies. EO results were of great help for the authorities responsible for reporting. The results of EO and station sampling were of good mutual correspondence.
