INCA - Soil Retention

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. On site soil erosion from rainfall is regarded as one of the major causes of environmental degradation. However, healthy ecosystems can also halt soil erosion and contribute to the maintenance of soil quality and therefor...

EU Ecosystem Assessment - Invasive Alien Species

A spatially explicit cross-cutting indicator that quantifies the cumulative and relative pressure by IAS on terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems, by means of a unitless figure related to the relative extent of each ecosystem type negatively affected, over a r...

Water Retention Index

WRI is a composite indicator developed to assess the capacity of the landscape to regulate and retain water passing through it. This indicator shows where there could be a deficit in the capacity of the landscape to retain water which, combined with rainfall e...

Air quality regulation

NO2 is used as indicator substance for mapping air quality regulation by urban green space. Removal of NO2 by urban green space is calculated based on NO2 concentrations and deposition velocity.

Net Ecosystem Productivity

Net Ecosystem Productivity (NEP) may act as a surrogate for many ecosystem services given the crucial role of photosynthesis for many, if not all, ecosystem services. This indicator is based on NDVI measurements by Spot Vegetation. NDVI data were taken for 200...

Forest Carbon Potential

Forest carbon potential is an indicator which is developed to assess relative changes in carbon stock and flows and to compute its variation between two time periods, in relation to the extent of forests within the European Union. The indicator is based on out...

Habitat quality

The habitat quality indicator is based on the modelled species distribution of common birds. Data on bird species occurrences were obtained from the EBCC Atlas of European Breeding Birds. Species distribution models were built by means of the maximum entropy m...

Relative Pollination Potential

Pollination is a key ecosystem service as many crops but in particular, fruits and vegetables are partially dependent on pollinating insects to produce food for human consumption. This dataset is an index of relative pollination potential, which is defined as ...

Recreation Opportunity Spectrum

The Recreation Opportunity Spectrum (ROS) represents the degree of service available according to proximity to roads and residential areas. It combines the potential opportunities offered by nature and a proximity map to derive nine categories: three levels of...

Soil erosion control

Soil erosion control is a key ecosystem service delivered by terrestrial ecosystems, mainly through vegetation cover. Two indicators are used to quantify capacity and use of the service. A first dimensionless indicator measures the capacity of ecosystems to av...

INCA - Flood Control

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. All ecosystems but in particular forests, shrubland, grasslands and wetlands reduce runoff by retaining water in the soil and aquifers and slowing down the water flow. This prevents the rapid downstream runoff of surface...

INCA - Timber Provision

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. The dataset presents the contribution of ecosystems to timber provision by multiplying the net annual increment of timber with a ratio that estimates the contribution of ecosystems to timber growth. (Human inputs used in...

INCA - Crop Pollination

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. It describes the ecosystem service of crop pollination. Pollination is a key ecosystem service as many crops but in particular, fruits and vegetables are partially dependent on pollinating insects to produce food for huma...

INCA - Crop Provision

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. The dataset presents the contribution of ecosystems to crop provision by multiplying the yield in tonne/ha with the ecosystem contribution ratio. This ratio is a number between 0 and 1 and expresses the contribution of n...

INCA - Outdoor Recreation

This dataset is an output of KIP INCA. It describes the use of outdoor recreation on a daily basis (requiring short distance movement to reach a recreational area). Outdoor recreation is a cultural ecosystem service that includes all physical and intellectual...
