1. Monitoring of long-transportated contaminants in Greenland biota (AMAP CORE) 2016-2018

AMAP Core project 2016-2018 is a continuation of previous project which was initiated in 1994. The programme is a monitoring programme of contaminant concentrations in Greenland animals with the objective to follow the temporal trends. The programme includes also screening of contaminants of emergent concerns of selected samples and in some cases retrospective studies of such compounds.
