Nitrogen and phosphorus load reduction approach within safe ecological boundaries for the Nordic-Baltic region

Project description

Keeping the overabundance of nutrients in water under control

Water bodies require some nutrients to be healthy, but too many can be harmful. The EU-funded NORDBALT-ECOSAFE project will implement a soil and water assessment tool in six of the Nordic-Baltic region’s water basins. This model will demonstrate to stakeholders how to assess nutrient concentrations, loads, sources and pathways. Its reliability will also be evaluated. The project will assess the value of using high frequency sensors in nutrient monitoring and analyse trends in changes to carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus. To meet nutrient reduction goals, it will develop and demonstrate a management support system for implementing nature-based solutions and mitigation measures in river basins.
