  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on concentrations of heavy metal cadmium (Cd) in water. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is "Achieve", "Fail" or "Not assessed". Threshold values are based on Environmental quality standards (EQS), defined at EU level for substances included in the priority list under the Water Framework Directive. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 4 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins and further division into coastal and off-shore areas and division of the coastal areas by WFD water types or water bodies).

  • This dataset represents the results of core indicator on Polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs in biota results. The core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on concentrations of non-dioxin like PCB in Baltic Sea fish. Good status is achieved when the concentrations of PCB, dioxin and furan are below the threshold values. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 4 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins and further division into coastal and off-shore areas and division of the coastal areas by WFD water types or water bodies).

  • This dataset contains core indicator results developed under the HELCOM Third Holistic Assessment of the Ecosystem Health of the Baltic Sea (HOLAS 3).

  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on concentrations of polyaromatic hydrocarbons PAHs - Anthracene in sediment. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is "Achieve", "Fail" or "Not assessed".

  • This dataset contains results on HELCOM Assessment unit level 4b for oxygen debt. The information provided represents the data and results from the HELCOM HOLAS 3 indicator evaluation for eutrophication, covering the data period from 2016-2021. Data reported from national monitoring programmes to the HELCOM COMBINE database (hosted by ICES) is utilized for open sea assessment units. Open sea data extraction is carried out by ICES for in-situ (bottle) data creating the underlying assessment dataset [link ]. Coastal assessment units (WFD water types or water bodies) are assessed based on WFD result data reported by countries. Indicator analysis of both open sea and coastal areas is carried out using the HEAT assessment tool (https://github.com/ices-tools-prod/HEAT). This analysis provide the basis of the HELCOM indicator evaluations and are utilized in the HOLAS 3 thematic assessment of eutrophication. Attribute description: ES = Eutrophication Status ES_SD = Standard Deviation ES_N = Number of Observations ES_N_Min = Minimum Number of Observations any given year ES_SE = Standards Error ES_CI = Confidence Interval ET = Eutrophication Target / Threshold ER = Eutrophication Ratio ACDEV = Acceptable Deviation BEST = ET / (1 + ACDEV / 100) EQR = Ecological Quality Ratio EQR_HG = Ecological Quality Ratio High/Good Boundary EQR_GM = Ecological Quality Ratio Good/Moderate Boundary EQR_MP = Ecological Quality Ratio Moderate/Poor Boundary EQR_PB = Ecological Quality Ratio Poor/Bad Boundary EQRS = Ecological Quality Ratio Scaled GTC = General Temporal Confidence STC = Specific Temporal Confindence TTC = Total Temporal Confidence GSC = General Spatial Confidence SSC = Specific Spatial Confidence TSC = Total Spatial Confidence TC = Total Confidence
