    Nitrogen oxides emissions

    Nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) are together referred to as nitrogen oxides (NOX). Combustion of fossil fuels is by far the dominant source of NOX emissions. The emissions are not dependent solely on the amount of nitrogen in the fuel but also on the air - fuel mix ratio. High temperatures and oxidation-rich conditions generally favour NOX formation in combustion.NOX contributes to acid deposition and eutrophication which in turn can lead to potential changes occurring in soil and water quality.

    EU imports from least-developed countries by group of products

    The value at market prices of EU imports from least-developed countries, broken down by group of products (agricultural products, raw materials, energy products and manufactured goods).

    Growing stock in forests available for wood supply

    " Volume of all living trees more than X cm in diameter at breast height (or above buttress if these are higher) measured over bark from ground or stump height to a top stem diameter of Y cm, excluding or including branches to a minimum diameter of Z cm. Excludes: smaller branches, twigs, foliage, flowers, seeds, stump and roots."

    EU Imports from developing countries by group of products

    EU imports from developing countries by group of products. Imports include the total value of goods, which enter the statistical territory of the Member States from a developing country. (Description from Eurostat Quality Profile for indicator, Eurostat, 2008, p1).

    Productivity of artificial land

    Productivity of artificial land is defined as the gross domestic product (GDP) of a country divided by its total artificial land. Artificial land consists of built-up areas (areas covered with buildings and greenhouses) and non built-up areas (streets and sealed surfaces). Artificial land productivity shows whether built-up and non built-up areas are efficiently used to generate added economic value.
    For the calculation of artificial land productivity Eurostat uses the GDP in millions of PPS (Purchasing Power Standard).

    Built-up areas

    The indicator measures the total built-up area in a country (in km2). Built-up areas are areas covered with buildings and greenhouses.

    Water productivity

    The indicator measures how much economic output is produced per cubic meter of fresh water abstracted. It indicates the productivity of water use.

    Area under organic farming

    The indicator measures the share of total utilized agricultural area occupied by organic farming (existing organically-farmed areas and areas in process of conversion). Organic farming is a method of production, which puts the highest emphasis on environmental protection and, with regard to livestock production, animal welfare considerations.

    Gross nutrient balance in agricultural land - nitrogen

    The gross nutrient balance represents the total potential threat to the environment of nitrogen surplus or deficit in agricultural soils. It is calculated accounting the nitrogen added to an agricultural system and the nitrogen removed from the system per hectare of agricultural land.

    Gross nutrient balance in agricultural land - phosphorus

    The gross nutrient balance represents the total potential threat to the environment of phosphorus surplus or deficit in agricultural soils. It is calculated accounting the phosphorus added to an agricultural system and the phosphorus removed from the system per hectare of agricultural land.

    Built-up areas - percentage

    The indicator measures the total built-up area as a share of the total surface area of land in the country. Built-up areas are areas covered with buildings and greenhouses whereas non built-up areas include streets and sealed surfaces.
