Service Description: Mapping of contamination 'problem areas' and ‘non-problem areas’ based on measurements in the matrix 'sediments'. 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 sediments matric. 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’. 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. See the EEA report “Contaminants in Europe’s seas” (No 25/2018) for further information as well as examples of classification excluding specific groups of substances (e.g. metals, PBDEs).
