  1. Trend fauna- all species monitored- Living Planet Index Netherlands, 1990-2017

    Indicator | 3 May 2019

    The Living Planet Index of the Netherlands has increased with 6% since 1990. The increase is mainly attributable to developments in freshwater habitats. The trend has stabilised… more

  2. Ecosystem quality and trends in soil pH, 2017

    Indicator | 5 December 2018

    In many ecosystems soil quality is good, measured in terms of soil pH. But soil pH in parts of grasslands and marsh ecosystems is not yet within acceptable levels. In all… more

  3. Quality and trends of groundwater-dependent ecosystems, 2017

    Indicator | 5 December 2018

    Sites with moderate or bad groundwater levels are found throughout the country and in all ecosystem types. Marshes, wet heaths and wet grasslands in particular suffer from water… more

  4. Ecosystem quality and trends in nitrogen availability, 2017

    Indicator | 6 December 2018

    In many ecosystems the environmental pressure from nitrogen deposition is still too high. In forest, open dune and heath ecosystems in particular, conditions almost everywhere are… more

  5. Ozone layer, 1980-2012

    Indicator | 27 June 2014

    The thickness of the ozone layer has decreased by 5% worldwide during the last 25 years, with most depletion taking place between 1980 and 1990. Since the early 1990s, it has… more

  6. Emissions of National Emission Ceiling (NEC) substances, 1990-2013

    Indicator | 13 October 2015

    Emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ammonia, particulate matter and NMVOCs have declined considerably since 1990. With the exception of ammonia all emissions in 2012… more

  7. Eutrophying deposition, 1990-2017

    Indicator | 12 June 2019

    Eutrophying deposition totalled over 1,600 mol nitrogen per ha in 2017 averaged over the Netherlands. Deposition has therefore decreased by about 40% since 1990.… more

  8. Noise levels in homes due to road and rail traffic, 2000-2010

    Indicator | 20 May 2014

    More than 7,000 homes in the Netherlands experience noise from traffic on highways that exceeds the permissible level. Another 6,000 homes experience excessive noise levels from… more

  9. Nitrate in upper groundwater under agricultural land, 1992-2015

    Indicator | 29 March 2017

    Average nitrate concentration in groundwater in the Sand Region has diminished to levels close to the Nitrates Directive. The four-year average of nitrate concentrations in… more

  10. Environmental load of pesticides, 1998-2010

    Indicator | 24 February 2015

    The decrease in the environmental load of pesticides on surface waters has levelled off. The total environmental load was about 85% lower in the period 2008-2010 than in the… more
