What

Aqua-gaps is a network of scientists active in passive sampling monitoring

Aims

The aim is to obtain insight of the global distribution of POPs without discrepancies caused by individual or local approaches. More aims are to follow concentrations change over time and detect new pollutants

Activities

Application of passive sampling for the monitoring of spatial and temporal trend in levels of POPs on a global scale

How

Passive samplers and deployment cages are centrally prepared and exposed annually in representative fresh and marine water bodies.

Who

Network partners like agencies or institutes, active in the area of interest. Analyses will initially be performed in a single laboratory but will include multiple labs when quality assurance is further advanced
