A sound science-based assessment of organic contaminants in the marine environment
Period: 12/1/09 - 11/30/13
The project's aims are: 1) to solidify ITM?s position as a world leader in identifying and evaluating organic contaminants in the marine environment; 2) to provide the Swedish government with the scientific knowledge to take a leading role in international debate, negotiations and policy-making ...
Analysis of polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PBDD), hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (OH-PBDE) and methoxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (MeO-PBDE) in two food webs in the Baltic Sea
Period: 1/1/06 - 12/31/08
We have recently discovered tribrominated dioxins (triBDD) in mussels from the Baltic Sea. The concentration of the dominant triBDD congeners exceeds that of the most dominating PCB congeners (eg. CB-153). The most likely hypothesis for the source of the triBDDs in blue mussels is their formation ...
Biological Reference Materials for Organic Contaminants
Period: 6/1/01 - 5/31/03
It is proposed to study the feasibility of the certification of polybrominated diphenyl ethers in fish and sediment, organochlorine pesticides in fish and polyaromatic hydrocarbons in mussels. The availability of certified reference materials (CRMs) could lead to a better analytical performance and ...
Environmental chemical disruptors of oxidative phosphorylation as a potential cause of wasting and reproductive effects in Baltic wildlife - A cocktail effect requiring a toxic equivalent approach
Period: 1/1/10 - 12/31/12
This project is taking a novel approach to explain some observed adverse health effects in Baltic Sea wildlife, such as wasting syndrome among several Baltic Sea mammals, birds and fish, and reproductive insufficiency among fish species. The long term goal is to understand these environmental ...
Identifiering och kvantifiering av halogenerade substanser i havsörn - screening och undersökning av samverkanseffekter på reproduktionen
Period: 1/1/04 - 6/30/07
Studien syftar till att genom undersökningar av havsörnsägg och blodprover från havsörnsungar identifiera och kvantifiera det breda spektrum av organiska miljögifter som uppträder i höga koncentrationer i svenska havsörnar. De negativa effekterna av DDT som upptäcktes under 1960-talet har avklingat ...
