Abstract: The fourth workshop of the ‘Network of Experts for ReDeveloping Models of the European Marine Environment’ was held on 19-20 November 2019 in Ispra, Italy, jointly organized by DG Environment and DG JRC (Water and Marine Resources Unit) within the framework of the Administrative Arrangements (N110661/ENV.C.2/2016/733192 and N070201/2017/765512/SER/ENV.C.2 34450.JRC) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MFSD). The aim of this workshop was to continue the information exchange between the Commission and marine modelling experts with a particular focus this year on the links between land-based management options and their impact on different aspects of the marine ecosystems downstream. A multimodel comparison approach was followed in which different marine models for the diverse EU basins were fed with common rivers’ scenarios based on a set of pre-defined pressures at continental level. Both low-trophic level models and high-trophic level models were involved in the exercise, so the uncertainty due to the model structure and deficiencies could be properly assessed. In total 19 research groups from different MS institutions provided 13 low-trophic levels models and 9 high-trophic levels models to the ENSEMBLE. General and basin-specific conclusion on the impacts of the freshwater scenarios on descriptors associated to the MSFD were drawn from the different simulations. This report summarizes the workshop and provides further detail on the presentations, discussion and conclusions
