National data check-up site for Germany regarding Open sea assessment and Coastal assessment.
National contact: Fill check-up table below according to EUTRO OPER manual based on the data described in dataview.
DE was only able to check the national database but since data are reported from there to ICES we assume that gaps in the national database will be the same as in ICES. For the period 2007 to 2011 there are large gaps in the national database concerning DIN, DIP, TN, TP, Chla, Secchi and oxygen. Data are in particular missing from IOW and LUNG, LLUR data seem to be complete. Given these large gaps the further steps in testing cannot be carried out.
There is currently no process foreseen to fill the datagaps. DE will focus resources on the upcoming HOLAS II assessment and the period 2011-2016 and will aim at reporting all relevant eutropication data to ICES for that period.
ICES has corrected the numbering according to re-submitted file
Indicator Chlorophyll a is missing although DE provided data in the questionnaire; indicator Secchi is still lacking targets but these will be provided; indicator oxygen lacks status and targets - indicator is still under national revision and data can only be provided at a later stage; indicators macrophytes and macrozoobenthos lack data and targets from LLUR (Schleswig-Holstein) but these can be provided
For macrophytes and macrozoobenthos ES has been wrongly calculated; excel file with corrected calculations will be submitted; for Secchi there was a mistake in the targets provided by DE and an excel-file with new targets will be submitted that now contaisn target values for all WFD water bodies
For Secchi depth the provided targets will be updated by submitting a revised excel file
Calculation of ER for macrophytes and macrozoobenthos is wrong; it cannot be done by dividing ES by ET because ES is not the status value but the calculated EQR of the WFD complex macrophyte/macrozoobethos index; Swedish formula needs to be applied also to enable aggregation of these parameters in the HEAT assessment
