National Environmental Monitoring Programme in Sweden.
Measurements of persistant organic pollutants in the air and depositions are carried out at Råö, Vavihill, Aspvreten, and in Pallas (North Finland). The monitoring programme includes measurements of: polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), some pesticides (HCH, DDT) and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE).
This is a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project
