The RSL dataset results from the monitoring activities undertaken by the "Réseau de Suivi Lagunaire en Languedoc-Roussillon" RSL project. The dataset contains mainly data relating to the level of eutrophication along the French Languedoc-Roussillon area. more

The RSL was rolled out in 2000 within the framework of the "SDAGE Rhône Méditerranée Corse". It recommends the fight against eutrophication and the creation of new monitoring programs. In this context, it applies the results of a study defining indicators for the level of eutrophication and the development of a diagnostic tool for eutrophication status (in lagoons), applicable to routine. The RSL is the result of a partnership between the "Ifremer", the "Région Languedoc-Roussillon" and the "Agence de l’Eau Rhône Méditerranée Corse". The coordination is carried out by the "Cépralmar".
