Confidence rating of marine eutrophication assessments

This report presents the development of a methodology for assessing confidence in eutrophication status classifications. The method can be considered as a secondary assessment, supporting the primary assessment of eutrophication status. The confidence assessment is based on a transparent scoring of the 'value' of the indicators on which the primary assessment is made. Such secondary assessment of confidence represents a first step towards linking status classification with information regarding their accuracy and precision and ultimately a tool for improving or targeting actions to improve the health of the marine environment.

Assessments of eutrophication status in Nordic countries have for decades been indicator based, but since 2002 Nordic eutrophication assessments have included the use of multi-metric indicator-based assessment tools.
