A measure to help understand or represent either the state of the environment as a whole or specific aspects of it. Relying on Environmental Indicators can be a more practical and cost-efficient way to keep track of the state of the environment as opposed to collecting data on every variable (e.g., the concentration of Ozone-depleting substances in the Atmosphere is an Environmental Indicator of the status of Ozone depletion more generally).
