  • The data set is indicating important spots where sea- and shore birds breed in the Baltic Sea area. This dataset depicts breeding areas of birds as pointwise locations used for the BRISK project (Sub-regional risk of spill of oil and hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, http://www.brisk.helcom.fi/). This dataset has been produced by COWI (http://www.cowi.dk) based on data collected from Baltic sea countries (Denmark, Estonia, Finland (Finnish data Copyright: SYKE, The Finnish data is lacking small bays of the Finnish coastline. These bays are important for birds), Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Sweden). The dataset includes data provided by the BRISK Project Partner organisations from various Baltic Sea countries. The detailed documentation of what partner provided what data is given in the Annex of the document: 70618-3.1.2.2 Data Collection Report. About 20 species of seabirds breed along the coast of thee Baltic. The Archipelago areas in Finland and Sweden are the most important breeding areas. They are very vulnurable to oil spill. The data includes important spots where seabirds nests.

  • This map presents the Special Protection Areas (SPAs) with reported breeding areas for birds. The spatial data on Special Protection Areas were gathered from the HELCOM contracting parties by Lund University, Sweden. In the data, the countries also indicated whether the sites were designated mainly due to wintering or breeding birds in the area. For Denmark, the information was obtained from standard forms for Natura 2000 sites. For Denmark, the data was updated after review process 20 February 2017. For Germany, the areas that were reported as “NA”(=information not available) were included in both breeding and wintering area maps. Many of the SPAs are both wintering and breeding areas. For the Baltic Sea Impact Index, the data was converted to 1 km x 1km grid cells.

  • This dataset contains core indicator results for the bird species breeding in the Baltic Sea area by assessing fluctuations in abundance, visualized for surface feeders. Quantitative regional thresholds are used to evaluate if the core indicator achieves good status. Good status is achieved when the abundance of 75% of the considered species of a species group does not decline by more than 30% (20% in species laying only one egg per year) compared to a baseline during the reference period 1991-2000. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 3 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins and further division into coastal and offshore areas). Attribute information: "HELCOM_ID" = ID of the HELCOM scale 3 assessment unit "level_2" = Name of scale 2 HELCOM assessment unit "level_3" = Name of scale 3 HELCOM assessment unit "Area (km2)" = Area of HELCOM assessment unit "coastal" = HELCOM ID of the coastal areas "open_sea" = Open sea assessment unit name "Abundance" = Assessed parameter "Wading feeders" = Results for the category "Wading feeders status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "Surface feeders" = Results for the category "Surface feeders status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "Pelagic feeders" = Results for the category "Pelagic feeders status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "Benthic feeders" = Results for the category "Benthic feeders status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "Grazing feeders" = Results for the category "Grazing feeders status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "AULEVEL" = Assessment unit level used for the indicator "Group area" = Name of the group area

  • This dataset represents the underlying data on the core indicator Abundance of waterbirds in the breeding season during HOLAS 3. The data results from a data call carried out by HELCOM for the State of the Baltic Sea report. Spatial data was provided as points, lines, and polygons. Further data in excel format was also provided.

  • This dataset contains core indicator results for the bird species breeding in the Baltic Sea area by assessing fluctuations in abundance, visualized for benthic feeders.Quantitative regional thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is GES (good environmental status) or sub-GES (sub- good environmental status). Good status is achieved when the abundance of 75% of the considered species of a species group does not decline by more than 30% (20% in species laying only one egg per year) compared to a baseline during the reference period 1991-2000.

  • The dataset contains the compilation of the abundance of coastal waterbirds in the breeding season from the data submitted by HELCOM contracting parties to the data call for HOLAS 3. Data was received from DE, DK, EE, FI, PL and SE.

  • The data set is indicating important spots where sea- and shore birds breed in the Baltic Sea area.

  • This dataset contains core indicator results for the bird species breeding in the Baltic Sea area by assessing fluctuations in abundance, visualized for wading feeders. Quantitative regional thresholds are used to evaluate if the core indicator achieves good status. The indicator performs status evaluations by aggregating annual single species index values for all waterbird species and on the basis of aggregated indices for five species groups (wading feeders, surface feeders, pelagic feeders, benthic feeders, grazing feeders). Good status is achieved when the abundance of 75% of the considered species of a species group does not decline by more than 30% (20% in species laying only one egg per year) compared to a baseline during the reference period 1991-2000.
