Aquatic Environment

Nitrogen and phosphorus loading causes algal-green lakes and oxygen deficit in fjords and marine waters. Nitrate also poses a problem in the groundwater. A number of hazardous substances also place pressure on surface waters and the groundwater.

NERI is involved in monitoring of the aquatic environment as topic centre on freshwater ecology and marine ecology and is responsible for monitoring the Danish marine waters. Seven environment centres in the Danish Ministry of the Environment are responsible for the monitoring the groundwater, lakes, watercourses and fjords. NERI investigates the turnover and effects of nitrogen and phosphorus, the effects of selected hazardous substances, sustainable utilization of the water resources, marine mammals, and restoration of lakes and watercourses. We also investigate how global warming will affect the aquatic environment, and are constructing mathematical models for use in forecasting the trend.
