About this tool

WaD offers a simplified navigation structure through thematically classified indicators. Patterns, trends and correlations of monitoring data for the Dutch Wadden Sea are visualised in a series of downloadable graphs, charts and other types of infographics. With background information on the monitoring processes and on how to interpret the results and/or trends, this tool can help to signal changes and thus support management decision making and policy development for this large-scale, intertidal ecosystem.
