Exchange of electricity in the Nordic countries, 1996 Exchange of electricity in the Nordic countries, 1996
The graph shows exchanges of electricity in the Nordic countries in TWh. The Nordic countries have a long tradition of cross-border cooperation in providing an efficient and reliable power supply. The main reason for these exchanges has been that each of these countries has a different mix of power generation facilities. In the later years, from around 1997, the cooperation has changed from being an oligopoly structure with dominant state-owned e...

CO2 air emissions by sources in 1995 CO2 air emissions by sources in 1995
The graph shows CO2 air emissions from selected countries by various sources in 1995. Among the anthropogenic sources of CO2 air emissions are fossil fuel combustion, cement production and land-use conversion.

Dobris+3: overall pan-european assessment Dobris+3: overall pan-european assessment
The graph shows Dobris+3: overall pan-european assessment. It describes positive or negative developments within various environmental branches, such as climate change, biodiversity and urban environment, the occurence of environmental policies as well as the principal drivers of said environmental developments.

Danish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases Danish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases
The graph shows emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases in Denmark from 1990- 1995 and projections to 2020 according to second national communication to UNFCCC. Greenhouse gases are largely results of human activities, including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

PCB and DDT in Guillemot eggs, Baltic proper (1972-1994) PCB and DDT in Guillemot eggs, Baltic proper (1972-1994)
The graphic shows PCB and DDT in Guillemot eggs, Baltic proper (1972-1994). To assess the current contaminant pressure on the common guillemot (Uria aalge) living there, the amount of DDT and PCB in Guillemot eggs were monitored. The results, as shown on graph, demonstrates a dramatic decrease of these toxins in Guillemot eggs since 1972.

Electricity consumption in Baltic region countries in 1995. in TWh Electricity consumption in Baltic region countries in 1995. in TWh
The graphic shows electricity consumption in Baltic region countries in 1995 in TWh. Russia and Germany are the biggest consumers of electricity overall, however it is worth noticing that Nordic nations by far have the highes energy consumption per capita.

Emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, Finland Emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, Finland
The graph shows Finnish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1980 to 1996 with projections to 2010 according to second national communications to UNFCCC. Greenhouse gases are largely produced by human activities such as industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, including deforestation.
