Baltic Environmental AtlasEntry ID: BEA
Abstract: The Baltic Environmental Atlas presents environmental factors that primarily have an impact upon the loads of nutrients entering into the Baltic Sea, such as land use and population distribution. The data represents that status approximately at the end of the 1990's.
The service has been developed by GRID-Arendal, a UNEP affiliated environmental data and information centre within two EU projects: ... Baltic on-line interactive geographical and environmental information service (BOING) and BALANS. BOING is a strategic demonstration project under the Information Society directorate of the Commission of the European Communities to improve accessibility to environmental information on nutrient pollution and eutrophication in the Baltic Sea Region. The BALANS project has developed a seamless land-cover characteristics database for the Baltic Sea drainage basin.
