  • This indicator evaluates the eutrophication status of the Baltic Sea area based on dissolved inorganic phosphorus (DIP) concentration. The measured average DIP is based on in-situ PO4 measurements from oceanographic monitoring data for winter period (December-February) 2011-2016 (umol/l), surface water (0-10 m).

  • This dataset represents the Integrated biodiversity status assessment for benthic habitats using the BEAT tool. Status is shown in five categories based on the integrated assessment scores obtained in the tool. Biological Quality Ratios (BQR) above 0.6 correspond to good status. The assessment in open sea areas was based on the core indicators ‘State of the soft-bottom macrofauna community’ and ‘Oxygen debt’. Coastal areas were assessed by national indicators, and may hence not be directly comparable with each other.
