Abstract
    The pollution loads of the major rivers flowing into the North Sea are calculated over the period 1984 to 1987. The rivers involved are: the Elbe, the Weser, the Ems, the Rhine and Meuse, the Scheldt, the Thames, the Humber, the Tees, the Tyne, and the Forth. For several substances the loads are compared with other sources of pollution. In general it can be stated that the reliability of the loads is rather low. The highest concentrations are in most of the cases found in the river Scheldt.
