EMODNet Chemistry support to MSFD data reporting

Examples from IT and Black Sea

Giordano Giorgi (ISPRA)

TG DIKE, 4 July 2013

  • Indicators used by MS IT for contaminants D8

  • 8.1.1 - Concentration of the contaminants mentioned above, measured in the relevant matrix (such as biota, sediment and water) in a way that ensures comparability with the assessments under Directive 2000/60/EC

  • 8.2.1 - Levels of pollution effects on the ecosystem components concerned, having regard to the selected biological processes and taxonomic groups where a cause/effect relationship has been established and needs to be monitored

TG DIKE, 4 July 2013

  • 8.1.1 - Concentration of the contaminants

  • Single sample: GES is reached when for all priority substances EQS – Environmental Quality Standards are respected

    • Index that calculates for each substance the difference between concentration value and EQS, sum and weigh in a proper way all the differences

  • Assessment area: assuming a proper cover by monitoring stations of the assessment area, GES is reached when at least 70 % of samples collected in the assessment area is at GES.

  • Subregion: GES is reached when all assessment areas belonging to the subregion are at GES

  • 8.2.1 - Levels of pollution effects on the ecosystem components

  • Single sample: GES is reached when for all priority substances variations for bioaccumulation and biomarkers are not meaningful

    • All control organisms comes from assessment areas that are in GES for 8.1.1

  • Assessment area: assuming a proper cover by monitoring stations of the assessment area, GES is reached when at least 50% of samples collected in the assessment area is at GES.

  • Subregion: GES is reached when all assessment areas belonging to the subregion are at GES

  • EMODnet and Indicators 8.1.1 & 8.2.1

  • Single sample concentrations values and monitoring stations are represented with CDI metadata

  • GES compliance can be calculated from EMODnet once algorithm for indicators is agreed

  • Assessment areas and subregions will be part of EMODnet platform

  • EMODNet Chemistry will provide the following products to be used by the authorities in charge of the assessment:

  • Diva interpolated maps

  • Time series plots

  • Coastal visualisations, including GIS representations of assessments.

  • Black Sea and EMODnet for D5

  • All Black Sea states are EMODNET Chemistry partners

  • Data collection: National Black sea states monitoring programme(s)/sub-Regional Monitoring Programme(s): Black Sea Integrated Monitoring Programme(BSIMAP), Bucharest Convention, Research projects

  • Data assembly: Data are assembled in the Black Sea Information System (BSIS). The Regional Pollution Database is managed by Regional Activity Center on Pollution Monitoring and Assessment (RAC PMA)

TG DIKE, 4 July 2013

  • Black Sea and EMODnet for D5

  • Indicators:

  • RO/BG in charge for establish the indicators for their marine waters

  • Black Sea indicators oversight by respective Advisory Groups (e.g. PMA AG).

  • Some Black Sea indicators overlap with MSFD indicators

  • Developed methodologies for:

  • Chl-a (summer)

  • benthic invertebrates (M-AMBI)

  • Nutrients concentration in the water column

  • Nutrients ratio

  • Direct effects

  • Secchi depth, Chl_a (summer)

  • Indirect effects

  • Oxygen

TG DIKE, 4 July 2013

  • Black Sea and EMODnet for D5

  • Methodology to be developed:

  • Phytoplankton (Shift of the floristic composition – ratio variation of the main taxonomic groups)

  • Phytobentos

  • Coastal hypoxia

  • Assessment

  • Black Sea SoE 2001-2006/7

  • BS annual reports for each PMA AG and LBSA (land Based Sources and Activities)

  • BEAST tool to be developed in the framework of Baltic2Black project
