Service Description

Mapping of contamination 'problem areas' and 'non-problem areas' based on measurements of biological effects.This dataset underpins the findings and cartographic representations published in the report Contaminants in Europe’s seas.

This dataset presents the resulting assessment grid (based on the EEA reference grid) with the classification of chemical status of the transitional, coastal and marine waters in the context of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). This classification has been performed using the CHASE+ tool, with classifications of the of contaminant status of indicators of biological effects. The status is evaluated in five classes, where NPAhigh and NPAgood are recognised as ‘non-problem areas’ and PAmoderate, PApoor and PAbad are recognised as ‘problem areas’.

Monitoring biological effects is restricted to a fewindicators(e.g. imposex)and data coverage is currently limited.Biological effects have thus been addressed in only 134 assessment units, mostly in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the North-East Atlantic Ocean.

See the EEA report “Contaminants in Europe’s seas” (No 25/2018) for further information.

The chemical status is evaluated in five classes, where NPAhigh and NPAgood are recognised as ‘non-problem areas’ and PAmoderate, PApoor and PAbad are recognised as ‘problem areas’. Data coverage for coastal waters is reasonably good for the Black Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the North-East Atlantic Ocean and the southern Baltic Sea. Poor coverage is found in some northern parts of the Baltic Sea, the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea and also in western parts of the Mediterranean Sea. Data coverage for offshore waters is good in the North Sea and in western parts of the Black Sea.

Most countries in Europe include marine sedimentsin long-term monitoring activities. Consequently, thedata coverage is good, especially in southern parts ofthe Baltic Sea, the North Sea, the Celtic Sea, the Bay ofBiscay, western parts of the Black Sea and the coastalwaters of France, Italy and Portugal. The number of assessment units monitored and classified in the North-East Atlantic Ocean is 511. In the Mediterranean Sea, the number of assessment units is 153. Baltic Sea sediments are monitored on 97 assessment units while only 19 areas are assessed in the Black Sea.

This dataset presents the resulting assessment grid (based on the EEA reference grid) with the classification of chemical status of the transitional, coastal and marine waters in the context of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). The overall area of interest used is based on the marine regions and subregions under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. Additionally, Norwegian (Barent Sea and Norwegian Sea) and Icelandic waters (’Iceland Sea’) have been added (see Surrounding seas of Europe). Note that within the North East Atlantic region only the subregions within EEZ boundaries (~200 nm) have been included. A total of 1 541 assessment units have been assessed. All regional seas are covered by this thematic assessment of contaminants in Europe's seas.

  • The Baltic Sea

  • The North-east Atlantic Ocean

    • The Greater North Sea, including the Kattegat and the English Channel

    • The Celtic Seas

    • The Bay of Biscay and the Iberian Coast

    • Macaronesia

  • The Mediterranean Sea

    • The Western Mediterranean Sea

    • The Adriatic Sea

    • The Ionian Sea and the Central Mediterranean Sea

    • The Aegean-Levantine Sea

The secondary aim is to establish a common understanding of marine boundaries and thus aid the streamlining of obligations under EU legislation, e.g. coordination between Member States, work establishment of monitoring programmes, establishment of programmes of measures, EEA indicator and assessment efforts and ‘Research and Technological Development’ (RTD) initiatives to be as relevant as possible for policy processes aiming at implementing an ecosystem-based approach to management. Lastly, the map can aid the harmonization between regions as required under other EU legislation and policies, by Regional Sea Conventions, International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) Ecoregions and other regional delineations. The aim is not to pre-empt any official discussions on maritime boundaries under UNCLOS.The delineation has been developed since 2010 based on multiple inputs from Member State representatives participating in groups defined under the MSFD Common Implementation Strategy, reporting under the MSFD Initial Assessment

The map represents the area where the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) is implemented by EU Member States. The source dataset is: https://sdi.eea.europa.eu/catalogue/srv/eng/catalog.search#/metadata/6d365112-5c0a-409e-bd45-68197fe3b2e8. The map service has been prepared for its use in the country profiles section in WISE-Marine (https://water.europa.eu/marine). To improve the performance of the service, the dataset has been simplified. To query maps per country from WISE-Marine including the marine waters and the land, the extent of each country has been added as boxes. Date of preparation: May 2020
