•    How to consider ecosystem condition and biodiversity in natural capital accounts?
•    How ecosystem condition accounts can be supported by remote sensing based indicators?
•    How to quantify trade-offs and synergies between ecosystem services using physical and monetary accounting?
•    How to include cultural ecosystem service values into marine ecosystem accounts?
•    How to integrate water quality data in physical and monetary ecosystem services  use accounts?
