Service Description
The map shows the mean annual concentrations of total ammonium (TA) as mg/L N-NH4in European rivers measured at WISE SoE River monitoring stations from 1993 till 2012. All data are annual means. For most countries these are based on measurements over the whole year, but for some countries the annual mean actually represents only the growing season (due to ice cover in winter).\n\nThe purpose of the map is to provide an overview of the annual concentrations of the total ammonium/ammonium in rivers across Europe and to enable viewer to make comparisons of the values in European countries or individual monitoring sites. NH4 is the empirical formula of the ammonium ion which, in water, is an important nitrogenous fertilizer for aquatic plants. In excess ammonium can give rise to problems because it contributes indirectly to BOD by reducing Dissolved Oxygen concentrations in water. It also forms ammonium hydroxide in water and is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic life at elevated pH levels. Total ammonium concentrations are normally increased as a result of discharges from waste water treatment plants, industrial effluents and agricultural runoff. It exerts a demand on oxygen in water as it is transformed to oxidised forms of nitrogen. In addition it is toxic to aquatic life at certain concentrations in relation to water temperature, salinity and pH. It can also pollute water used for drinking and bathing. In less detailed scale data is aggregated by country and pie charts are displayed. In more detailed scale individual stations appear in shape of triangles. Stations on which total ammonium / ammonium was not reported in certain year are coloured grey.\n\nData source: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/waterbase-rivers-10

Service Description
This map shows the mean annual concentrations of BOD (Biochemical oxygen demand) measured at Eionet-Water River monitoring stations from 1993 till 2012. All data are annual means.\n\nThe purpose of the map is to provide an overview of the annual concentrations of BOD in rivers across Europe and to enable viewer to make comparisons of the values between European countries, River basin districts or in individual monitoring sites. BOD (Biological - or biochemical - Oxygen Demand) refers to the amount of organic matter present in water that will consume oxygen as it is decomposed by micro-organisms. BOD is commonly used for 5-day BOD (BOD5); for those Member States reporting 7-day BOD (BOD7), these values have been converted to BOD5 (BOD7 = 1.16 BOD5) for reasons of comparability. Large quantities of organic matter (microbes and decaying organic waste) in water are a potential risk to aquatic ecosystems and human health. A reduction in the amount of oxygen in water as a result of the decomposition of organic matter can endanger aquatic life through asphyxiation and disrupt the ecological balance of the water. It can also pollute water used for drinking and bathing. High levels of BOD can indicate such pollution. In less detailed scale, data is aggregated by country and pie charts are displayed. In more detailed scale individual stations appear in shape of triangles.\n\nData source: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/waterbase-rivers-10

Service Description
Map shows monitoring water locations and quality of bathing water from 2005 till 2015. For the scale 1:5.000.001 and less detailed, data are aggregated by country. In such case, stacked bars show percentage of bathing water quality for coastal and inland waters together. Number of bathing waters within certain category is seen in pop up window which can be turned on with a click on one of the countries. For the scale range 1:5 000.000 to 1:700,001, individual bathing water sites (points) are visible instead of classified stacked charts and are coloured according to the classification of bathing water quality. Symbol size depends on the map scale (in more detailed map scales symbols are bigger). For the scales 1:700,000 and more detailed, symbol of bather in a square appears instead of points. All symbols (charts, circles and squares with bather) are colored according to achieved quality status. Pop-up windows can be opened with a click on individual bathing water monitoring site. Monitoring requirements such as the taking of a pre-season sample, a minimum of four samples per season and a minimum of one sample per month must be met for all bathing waters. If these rules are satisfied, the bathing water is categorised as 'sampling frequency satisfied'. If at least one monitoring requirement is not fulfilled the bathing water is categorized as 'sampling frequency not satisfied'. In such cases, bathing water can still be quality assessed if at least four samples per season (three samples if the season does not exceed eight weeks or the region is subject to special geographical constraints) are available and are more or less equally distributed throughout the season. Assessment of bathing water quality is possible when the bathing-water sample dataset is available for four consecutive seasons. For the 2015 bathing season, all reported bathing water data have been assessed under the provisions of the Directive 2006/7/EC for the first time. Bathing waters are accordingly
