Data application/vnd.symbian.install EEA coastline for analysis
The EEA coastline for analysis is created for highly detailed analysis, e.g. 1:100 000, for geographical Europe. The criteria for defining the coastline is the line separating water from land. The EEA coastline is a product derived from two sources: EU-Hydro and GSHHG.

Article object code Turning the urban challenge into an opportunity
Copenhagen, 2 July 2011. Up to 150 mm of rainfall in two hours – a city record since measurements began in the mid-1800s. Homes destroyed. Citizens and emergency services struggled to cope. This is one example of how excessive extreme weather events can affect a European capital – events that are expected more often under climate change.

Folder An overview of Europe's protected areas
The European Environment Agency is compiling data about protected areas in Europe via the data flows on Natura 2000 and Nationally designated areas, reported by the countries. The material and analyses presented on these pages are based on the EEA report "Protected areas in Europe - an overview" from 2012.

Indicator Assessment Nutrients in freshwater (CSI 020) - Assessment DRAFT created Sep 2013
Average nitrate concentrations in European groundwaters increased from 1992 to 1998, but have declined again since 2005. On average, the nitrate concentration in European rivers declined by 0.5 mg N/l over the period 1992 to 2011 (20% relative to the average concentration), reflecting the effect of measures to reduce agricultural inputs of nitrate as well as improvement in wastewater treatment. Average orthophosphate concentrations in European rivers have decreased markedly over the last two decades- On average concentrations declined by 0.08 mg P/l between 1992 and 2011 (72% decrease relative to the average concentration). Also average lake phosphorus concentration decreased over the period 1992-2011 (on average by 0.008 mg P/l, or 27% relative to the average concentration). The decrease in phosphorus concentrations reflects both improvement in wastewater treatment and reduction in phosphorus in detergents. Overall, reductions in the levels of freshwater nutrients over the last two decades primarily reflect improvements in wastewater treatment. Emissions from agriculture continue to be a significant source.
