Priority substances and emerging contaminants in selected Norwegian rivers – The River Monitoring Programme 2017
MetadataShow full item record
Riverine inputs and direct discharges to Norwegian coastal waters in 2017 have been estimated in accordance with the OSPAR Commission’s principles. This report focuses on EU Water Framework Directive priority substances as well as river basin-specific pollutants (trace metals and organic pollutants) that were monitored with bottle sampling in water and biota sampling (fish). Levels observed were compared with annual average environmental quality standards (AA-EQS) or EQS(biota). A more detailed study of the distribution of emerging contaminants in the river Alna was undertaken.
