The management of sustainable aquatic ecosystems requires the use of monitoring surveys based on advanced analytical techniques. The Sebou Basin is a major river basin in Morocco that receives a large flow of untreated wastewater containing high levels of metals and persistent organic pollutants. This project aims at assessing the pollution levels originating from these hazardous substances, focusing on their accumulation and transport in the basin under different meteorological conditions.
