National Environmental Monitoring Programme. National Environmental Monitoring Programme. The PMK Network is part of the national network for deposition measurements.
The aim is (i) a long-term monitoring of concentration and deposition of selected air transported compounds caused acidification and eutrophication in different parts of Sweden; (ii) to generate knowledge about long-term variation in the field deposition, (iii) to give the background data from low polluted areas for calculation of pollutants deposition in more polluted areas the monitoring of pollutants in air and precipitations are proceed. Ozon and air samples for analysis of sulphur and nitrogen compounds, HCl as well as basic metal ions (Na, K, Ca, Mg, are taken on a monthly basis in air and precipitation. Ozone, as well as sulphur and the nitrogen compound particles are measured in air, and sulphur and nitrogen compounds, base cations, pH and electro-conductivity in precipitation.
This is a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project

- 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.
All analyses are performed at the accredited laboratory at IVL according to EMEPs recommendation. All analyses are performed at the accredited laboratory at IVL according to EMEPs recommendation. Air chemistry sampling are proceed with diffusion sampler, precipitation chemistry and metals in precipitation are determined with open sampler method.
The programme includes weekly sampling of sulphur- and nitrogen compounds and HCl,as well as metals (Na, K, Ca; Mg) in air. Hourly registraion of ozone levels and sampling of precipitation for analysis of major inorganic components on a weekly basis are proceed.
