Ecological Indices for Assessment of the Pollution Level in Water Bodies: a Case Study of the Kilia Delta of the Danube

A new version of statistical analysis is proposed based on integral ecological indices. The new method allows summarizing the information obtained in situ and reliably assessing the ecological state and the level of water pollution for a water body as a whole, as well as for its selected parts, using hydrochemical, microbiological and other hydrobiological parameters. The method is shown to be an efficient, feasible and reliable tool for registration of deviations of a water ecosystem from its optimal state caused by environmental changes. It can be used for comparison of data of long-term observations, and for many other applications. The sanitary-microbiological and hydrochemical indices are presented as examples.
