ICES WKGMSFDD6-II REPORT 2015 - Report of the Workshop on guidance for the review of MSFD decision descriptor 6 - seafloor integrity II
Report of the 2nd Workshop (WKGMSFDD6-II, Copenhagen, 16-19 February 2015) to review the 2010 Commission Decision on criteria and methodological standards on good environmental status (GES) of marine waters in what concerns Descriptor 6 (Sea-floor Integrity). Discussions are summarized focusing on consolidating the newly-suggested function-based approach to the descriptor and addressing relevant scientific comments and requests for clarification received on the earlier version of the MSFD review D6 manual. A new conceptual approach is proposed for D6 by establishing three overarching criteria (i.e. pressure, state and impact) that have manifest links with the existing criteria but still require further development.
