Abstract: This report describes the development of a geospatial versatile tool for assessing the fate of nutrients and pesticides of agricultural origin at European scale. The bio-physical model EPIC has been linked to readily available data at European level in order to estimate the losses of nutrient as affected by farming practices and other human induced forcing such as climate change. The report details the theory behind the EPIC model, and then provides a description of the integration of the EPIC into a GIS. The tool called European Agrochemicals Geospatial Loss Estimator is used to estimate the impact of various Global Climate Models predictions on crop water and nutrient requirements. In addition the model is used to derive pesticide risk indicators.
