  • WP4 team is busy setting up the conceptual basis for the modelling of ecosystem services provided by DRN and their values. This will serve as the basis for a forthcoming interdisciplinary workshop in the new year. The team is making itself familiar with the focal DRN, their commonalities and their differences and soon will be making a move in planning site specific activities

  • The WP3 team from University of Innsbruck works on setting up protocols for organic matter sample collection. Before sampling 6 river networks across Europe we give our ideas how to collect OM a decent test run in an Austrian river - cold, not dry at all and during Covid19-lockdown.

  • Within DRYvER we aim at generating a so far not existing impression on the chemical composition and diversity of particulate organic matter in six river networks. The tool of our choice is FTIR microscopy, allowing us to distinguish variously processed leaf litter particles, soil residuals and the occasional microplastic fiber. Tuning this microscopic method to efficiently achieve chemical fingerprinting for the many samples ahead of us in DRYvER is the lab challenge for the winter months.

How does it work?

Translated versions of the tutorial are available at the bottom of the page.

Downloading and installing the application

Please note that the app is currently in Beta test phase and only available for the DRYvER team members.

The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store from the six European DRYvER member countries (Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Finland, France, Spain) by searching for the app's name (DryRivers).

Sign up / Login / Registration

If you have an existing account for the app, type in the email address and the password, then click the LOGIN button. For creating a new account, click the SIGN UP button (1) on the starting screen of the app, then please give the requested information on the Registration page, then to finish the process press the SIGN UP button (2). Before you can sign in, you have to confirm your email address via the automatic email you will receive after completing the registration process.

Starting screen

At the Starting screen, you can either add a new record by clicking the Add new point button (3), or you can upload the recorded points from your storage. By default for the first time your storage is empty (4).

After you added new points, your records will show up in your storage, and you will be able to upload your records by clicking the Upload items button (5).

You can also sign out from the app here by clicking the Exit icon (6) next to the DRYRivERS app logo.

Adding new points

By clicking the Add new point button on the Starting screen, you will be moved to the Map screen where you can either find your position by clicking the GPS icon (7) or you can manually find the spot you wish to record by scrolling and zooming on the map. When you find the point you want to add, you can either add data to an existing record (8) by selecting an orange mark (the existing orange mark will turn to red) or you can add a new record (9) by selecting an empty spot on the map (a new blue mark will appear).

If you wish to continue with your selected point, press the Add new icon (10).

You can always cancel your selection by clicking the X icon (11).

Recording hydrological conditions

After you pressed the Add new icon at the Map screen, you will be moved to the Conditions screen. Firstly, you will have to select from the three condition options (Flow / Disconnected pools / Dry) the one which describes the point’s hydrological status the best. Then you can enter the point’s name (12) and you can take a photo of the current conditions by clicking the Photo icon (13) and pressing the Shutter button (14). Both entering the point's name and taking a photo are optional, however highly recommended steps.

Just as before at the Map screen, you can always cancel your progress by clicking the X icon.

If you are ready with all the processes, you can save your record by clicking the Save icon (15).

After that, you will be redirected to the Starting screen, where you can choose to add another point (16) or upload your saved items (17).
