abstract
Climate change simulations indicate that rainfall will increase in the North Sea region, however wit significant seasonal variations. This will lead to higher groundwater levels, higher flux to rivers/coastal waters and a forced outwash of nutrients and pollutants from industrial areas, agriculture and landfills. This will be investigated in an number of pilot areas along the North Sea coast.
