Abstract: A novel approach for Europe-wide classification of the ecological quality of surface waters and harmonisation of the classification systems required by the European Commission Water Framework Directive (EC 2000) is presented. We focus on the establishment of reference conditions and quality class boundaries for European lakes according to a phytoplankton indicator - the concentration of chlorophyll a. The approach is illustrated through a case study in which the ecological status of 54 European large lakes was evaluated according to the proposed criteria
