Abstract: The understanding of the fate and impact of pollutants on the functioning of the terrestrial/aquatic interface is a scientific challenge that requires a combination of several disciplines, tools and datasets. In order to support the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, DG Environment and the JRC joined to develop a study on the expected cumulative impact of existing European Union environmental legislation on the quality of the marine environment, with specific reference to the case of aquatic discharges from inland-based sources (FATE-scenarios).The main objective of the study is to assess, retrospectively and in forecast mode, changes in environmental pressures due to substances originating from anthropogenic activities and discharged in European marine waters. This document reports on the nutrient discharge from rivers to seas for year 2000 and provides estimates on the contribution of major sectoral activities to the losses of nutrients.
