5 5 Content Reporting Methodology: Basis for classification (Chapter 3) European overview of ecological status, pressures and impacts (Chapter 5) Ecological status, pressures and impact in different countries (Chapter 4) Key messages Additional questions Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

6 6 Reporting Transitional waters 15 MS 77 RBDs Number of WBs: 953 Average area: 18 km2 Overall area: km2 Coastal waters 19 MS 99 RBDs Number of WBs: 2742 Average area: 97 km2 Overall area: km2 Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

7 7 Methodology: Confidence in classification of TC waters (24%) (18%) (30%) (26%) Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

8 8 Methodology: Use of quality elements Coastal waters Transitional waters Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM BQE

9 9 Non- priority specific pollutants = Catchment Basin Specific Pollutants Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM Transitional waters 220 substances were recorded LV for 30 substances could be compared For 190 substances only one MS reported limit values Coastal waters 202 substances were recorded. LV for 23 substances could be compared For 179 substances only one MS reported limit values For transitional and coastal waters the relative difference between Min and Max LV in (%) is from 0 – % (i.e.5000x) Analysis by: Jens Arle, Ulrich Claussen & Patrick Müller (Federal Environment Agency, Section of the Marine Environment, Wörlitzer Platz 1, D Dessau-Roßlau, Germany), data from:

10 10 EU overview of ecological status, pressures and impacts Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

11 11 EU overview of Ecological status Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

12 12 EU overview of Ecological status % of WBs in less than good status Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM The worst status for TC waters is in the Baltic sea and North-east Atlantic (Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium); Romania and Bulgaria in the Black sea also reported large share of waters in less than good status Reporting is still not complete

13 13 EU main pressures and impacts Coastal Transitional Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

14 14 EU overview of point and diffuse pollution pressures Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM Member states which have reported pressures, but where certain RBDs are marked as no data reported should indicate whether this particular pressure has not been reported in this RBD or whether no water bodies in this RBD are affected by this particular pressure.

15 15 EU overview of HyMo pressures Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM Member states which have reported pressures, but where certain RBDs are marked as no data reported should indicate whether this particular pressure has not been reported in this RBD or whether no water bodies in this RBD are affected by this particular pressure.

16 16 TC waters grouping for the countries overview Based on regional seas delineation of land areas draining into the five different seas Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

17 17 Countries overview: transitional waters Ecological status HyMo pressures Pollution pressures Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

18 18 Countries overview: Coastal waters Ecological status Pollution pressures Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

19 19 Case studies Link catchment to transitional and coastal waters –Rein –Danube –Po catchment - Northern Adriatic –Baltic sea Specific cases –Long term trends in status of TC waters in North Spain (Basque) –Lagoons ? –Other ideas, contributions from MS? Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM

20 Key messages Data from 99 RBDs, 3695 WBs were reported; 76% classified, 43% H/G confidence; Results: Transitional waters are in worst status than CW (~69% less than good), main pressures point and diffuse sources and HyMo, causing altered habitats, organic and nutrient enrichment; ~48% of coastal waters is not reaching good status, main pressures point and diffuse sources, nutrient enrichment reported in more than 42%; All elements were not used for classification equally, many WBs were classified based on expert judgement; IC for BQEs was not finished at the time of classification, low level of comparability expected also for nutrients, HyMo and NP-pollutants; Status, impacts and pressures were not reported consistently by some countries; Eionet workshop March 2012 Author: Monika Peterlin, IWRS, ETC-ICM
