National Environmental Monitoring Programme in Sweden, in the "Air" programme area. Eleven chemical parameters are measured in precipitation every month, and in the air Hg (TGM and TPM) is measured weekly. Measurements are carried out at 4 stations in Sweden and one in Finland. The project is part of an international network that follows the variations in the levels and deposition of heavy metals, particularly mercury, in the Arctic region.

Analyzed metals in air: As, Cd, Ni, Pb, Co, Cr, Cu, Zn, Mn, V, every month, total gaseous mercury (TGM) and total particular mercury (TPM) 1-2 days per week. Analyzed metals in precipitation: As, Cd, Ni, Pb, Co, Cr, Cu, Zn, Mn, V, and tot-Hg every month.

All analyses are performed at the accredited laboratory at IVL. (www.ivl.se/vanstermeny/ivlanalys.4.360a0d56117c51a2d30800063884.html) Monitoring results follow up on the Swedish environmental goals and the EU directive (2004/107/EG) standards. Sampling of Hg (particulate) in Air/aerosol: Every other week; Hg (gaseous) in Air/aerosol: 1 day / week Hg in Bulk precipitation: Monthly.

The data are reported to EU (CLRTAP)and European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP)
Heavy metals and total Mercury in precipitation are measured at Hallahus, Råö and Bredkälen (Close to AMAP-area). Heavy metals are also measured at Aspvreten. In co-operation with the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), measurements are carried out at Pallas in the far North of Finland, close to the Swedish border (within AMAP-area).
