Abstract: This extended abstract presents a proposed hydromorphological classification system for lakes and reservoirs for the support of the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive. The system describes a set of hydromorphological parameters and corresponding class borders, given as deviations from expected natural status. The proposed classification system is planned to be tested with respect to its relevance and applicability during 2018, and adjusted according to the test results.
