About the project
In this program, the Inner Oslofjord is used as a model for other Norwegian fjords with similar impacts. The program includes sampling and analysis of sediment and organisms in a marine food chain, samples of blood and eggs from glaucous gulls, as well as investigations of pollutant inputs via stormwater.
Relevant parameters include a number of "new" and "traditional" pollutants, such as heavy metals, organic pollutants and stable isotopes.
Data from the program will be used in international pollutant regulations, such as REACH and the Stockholm Convention.
