National Environmental Monitoring in Sweden in Air programme and sub-programme A Protective Ozone Layer (the thickness of the ozon layer).
The project follows changes of the thickness of the ozone layer in the atmosphere over Sweden.
This is a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project
- Project time span
- 1988 - 2099
- Data collection
- 1988 - 2011
- Data processing
- 1988 - 2011
- Data reporting
- 1988 - 2011
- Are data archived or planned to be archived at an AMAP Thematic Data Centre?
- If no (or only part of data are reported to a TDC), where and how are (other) data stored?
- data are available at national datahost: Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI),
601 76 Norrköping,
and SMHI website:(www.smhi.se/sgn0102/n0205/nvv/1999/mo_registersida.htm) and (http://www.smhi.se/klimatdata/miljo/ozon); also on website of World Ozone and Ultraviolet Data Centre in Canada (www.tor.ec.gc.ca/woudc/).
Results from the Swedish EMEP-programme are published annually, reported to the EMEP database at NILU, included in the European modelling and evaluation activities, and to European Topic Centre on Air and Climate hange (EIONET): (http://air-climate.eionet.europa.eu/).
- References to key publications (or planned publications) and data reports
- Raport links are available on the Swedish EPA homepage
(www.smhi.se/sgn0102/n0205/nvv/1999/mo_registersida.htm), and Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI)(www.smhi.se/sgn0106/if/biblioteket/rapporter/rmk.htm); as well as European Environment Information and Observation Network (http://rod.eionet.europa.eu/countrydeliveries?actDetailsId=122&spatialId=36);
- Samples/specimens archived in specimen banks?
Methods & Procedures
- Procedures and methodology used for, e.g., sampling and sample storage, sample pretreatment, extraction and analysis, including which laboratories are involved, references to methods employed, etc.
Standard methodology applied according to the WMO recommendations.
A Brewer ozone spectroradiometer has been in operation since 1983. In 1990 this instrument was moved to Vindeln (64.2 N 19.8 E) . The main purpose of this instrument is to monitor total ozone. However, its capability to measure UV-spectra has been used to produce a spectral data base.
- Is this a bi- AND multi-lateral project (i.e. a project involving cooperation between different countries)?
- Other institutes involved in the project
- Is this project reporting to other organizations/programmes?
Data are reported to World Ozone and Ultraviolet Data Centre in Canada, Co-operative programme for monitoring and evaluation of the long range transmission of air pollutants in Europe.
