The project aims at the optimasation and field validation of bacterial stress promotors (BEST) for the determination of sediment- and water quality. In a first approach, the sampling- and extraction procedures are optimised for four locations with know pollution profiles. Secondly, the BEST induction profiles are compared to available chemical, biological and ecotoxicological information for selected locations in Flanders with varying degrees of pollution.
