Long-term investigation of emerging persistent organic pollutants in air and snow of the Arctic (ePOPArctic)

Atmospheric long-range transport is a significant route for organic contaminants to reach ecologically sensitive Arctic environment. Organic pollutants are subject to a variety of processes in the Arctic environment such as degradation, bioaccumulation and interaction between the atmosphere, snow, water and soil.

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

Atmospheric long-range transport is a significant route for organic contaminants to reach ecologically sensitive Arctic environment. Organic pollutants are subject to a variety of processes in the Arctic environment such as degradation, bioaccumulation and interaction between the atmosphere, snow, water and soil. Additionally, climate change may significantly influence the transport and environment fate of organic pollutants in the Arctic. This project is focused on studies of long-term trends and atmospheric transport of emerging persistent organic pollutants, including perfluorinated organic compounds, brominated flame retardants, organophosphate flame retardants and current use pesticides in the Arctic. Data and feedback from this project may improve models to predict the environmental progression and assess the effect of climate change on the long-range transport and the fate of the emerging organic contaminants in the Arctic ecosystem.
