Nutrient input to the Baltic Sea from shipping

Shipping in the Baltic Sea is dense, with RoPax, tank and RoRo-vessels operating all year round. The cruise ship traffic is more frquent in the summer season and in areas of the Baltic Sea affected by high nutrient loads. The aim of the project is to summarize and map available data of nutrient-sources from shipping: sewage, scrubberwater, food waste and NOx deposition
