  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on concentrations of hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD) in Baltic Sea fish. Quantitative threshold values are used to classify core indicators status in "Fail", "Achieve" or "Not assessed". The threshold value is an environmental quality standard (EQS), derived at EU level as a substance included on the priority list under Directive 2008/105/EC. 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). Attribute information: "HELCOM_ID" = Code of the HELCOM scale 4 assessment unit "country" = country in which the HELCOM assessment unit is located or a mention to an open sea area "level_2" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit in scale 2 "name" = Name of the scale 4 assessment unit "Open_sea" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit in the open sea "F2_Name" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit "determinan" = Determinat "est" = The estimated mean loge concentration in the assessment unit "se" = The standard error on the estimated mean log concentration in the assessment unit "fit" = The estimated mean concentration in the assessment unit "upper_cl" = Upper one-sided 95% confidence limit on the mean concentration: exp(est + qnorm(0.95) * see) "Status" = Overall Status of the indicator according to one-out-all-out

  • This dataset contains core indicator "TBT and imposex - TBSN in water" results developed under the HELCOM Third Holistic Assessment of the Ecosystem Health of the Baltic Sea (HOLAS 3).

  • The layer depicts the pressure of hazardous substances in the Baltic Sea, based on the data from the HOLAS 3 integrated hazardous substances assessment. The methodology utilizes the integrated status values available for each HELCOM assessment unit on level 3. The results are based on multiple hazardous substances groups integration, done through the CHASE tool. The integrated assessment assess the hazardous substances status in biota, water and sediment, and final result in based on the worst status. As the SPIA is carried out using a 1x1km grid and the Integrated hazardous substances is assessed on vector-based HELCOM assessment units, the vector data is rasterized. First, the vector data is rasterized to 100x100m resolution, and thereafter it is aggregated to 10x10km grid using a mean value. A 10 km grid is used in order to make the gradients between assessment units slightly smoother and finally values are converted to 1x1 km resolution. Please see "lineage" section below for further details.

  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on concentrations of Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) metabolites in biota. Quantitative threshold value is used to classify core indicators status in “Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”. As There is no commonly agreed threshold value for measuring metabolites available, this report only considers concentrations of contaminants. 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). Attribute specifications and units: "HELCOM_ID" = Code of the HELCOM scale 4 assessment unit "country": country in which the HELCOM assessment unit is located or a mention to an open sea area "level_2" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit in scale 2 "Name" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit in scale 4 "Open_sea" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit in the open sea "F2_Name" = Name of the HELCOM assessment unit "determinan" = Determinat "est" = The estimated mean loge concentration in the assessment unit "se" = The standard error on the estimated mean log concentration in the assessment unit "fit" = The estimated mean concentration in the assessment unit "upper_cl" = Upper one-sided 95% confidence limit on the mean concentration: exp(est + qnorm(0.95) * see) "Status" = Overall Status of the indicator according to one-out-all-out

  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment based on concentrations of Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) in biota and sediment. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is "Achieve", "Fail" or "Not assessed".
