This infographic was produced as part of Research 184: Assessing Recent Trends in Nutrient Inputs to Estuarine Waters and Their Ecological Effect

The top section of the infographic details the sources of the nutrient loads for 18 Irish catchments, as identified through load apportionment modelling, the measured reduction in riverine inputs and the corresponding changes in estuarine parameters between 2000 and 2013. The table at the bottom identifies the changes that have occurred in each individual estuarine and coastal system and the corresponding drivers of nutrient change.
