Service Description
The dataset contains data on nutrients and organic matter, proxy pressure data on the upstream catchments and physical characteristics of the WISE-SoE lake monitoring stations. Waterbase contains timely, reliable and policy-relevant data collected from EEA member countries through the WISE-SoE data collection (formerly known as Eionet-Water and Eurowaternet) process. WISE-SoE data collection selects validated monitoring data from national databases and adds information on the physical characteristics of the water bodies being monitored and on the pressures potentially affecting water quality. The added value of Waterbase is that data collected through the WISE-SoE data collection process are from statistically stratified monitoring stations and groundwater bodies and are comparable at the European level. Waterbase data are primarily used in the production of the EEA's indicator-based factsheets. Data source: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/wise-large-rivers-and-large-lakes

Subject Map of Ammonium in rivers.

Copyright Text EEA, National Authorities
Registered first time 06 Oct 2014
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 1992 till 2011. 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).The 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. Historical data (from 1992 on) can be displayed and viewed with time slider tool.Data 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 1992 till 2011. All data are annual means.The 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 in 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. At less detailed scale, data is aggregated by country and pie charts are displayed. In more detailed scale individual stations appear in shape of triangles. Historical data (from 1992 on) can be displayed and viewed with time slider tool.

High or increased (compared to reference condition) concentration of nitrate represents a risk to normal functioning of downstream coastal ecosystems, causing eutrophication* with potentially excessive growth of algae or other aquatic vegetation, oxygen deficiency in the bottom waters and reduced biodiversity.

Registered first time 06 Oct 2014
Service Description
The map shows the mean annual concentrations of total phosphorus (TP) as mg/L TP in European lakes and reservoirs measured at Eionet-Water Lake monitoring stations during 2011. Total phosphorus includes all phosphorus components in lake water: phosphate dissolved organic phosphorus and particulate phosphorus in algal and bacterial cells, as well as in mineral particles (e.g. clay). For most countries the concentration values 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). The purpose of the map is to provide an overview of the annual concentrations of the total phosphorus in lakes across Europe and to enable viewer to make comparisons of the values in European countries, River basin districts or in individual monitoring sites. High or increased (compared to reference condition) concentration of total phosphorus represents a risk to normal functioning of lake ecosystems, causing eutrophication with potentially harmful or toxic algal blooms in the surface waters, reduced biodiversity, and oxygen deficiency in the bottom waters.Data source: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/waterbase-lakes-10

Annual WISE SoE reporting of Rivers water quality, Lakes water quality, Groundwater quality and Transitional, coastal and marine waters quality is used as the data source for this map.The purpose of the map is to provide an overview of the spatial distribution and density of monitoring stations in all mentioned WISE SoE reporting categories.Map contains 1 layer Overview of WISE SoE monitoring stations only.Data are classified into 8 classes according to the monitoring station category: River stations (incl. Canal stations), Lake stations (incl. Reservoir stations), Groundwater stations, Transitional water stations, Coastal water stations, Marine stations, TCM waters - Flux stations and Unknown category. Circle is used as symbol for each station. Individual classes are distinguished by color of the symbol. Temporal coverage of the map is 2013 WISE SoE reporting and all previous reporting periods. In certain cases, coordinates of monitoring stations were rounded to 1-2 decimal places by national reporters. Due to such rounding, stations located close to the country boundaries can be placed in the map slightly outside of relevant country territory.Few stations located eminently outside relevant country area were excluded from the map.Data source: http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/waterbase-rivers-10
