Geographical trends of short-chain chlorinated paraffins in the Arctic, established with harmonized and comparable methods

Updated 2018-08-26

The objective of this project is to improve the current situation of incomparable Arctic data and lack of routine analyses of short-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs). The project will work towards an agreement on one method, which will be implemented and described in terms of quality parameters and analytical protocols, as is common practice in chemical monitoring programmes

This is not a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project
