This project is now part of the project : Acidifying and Eutrophifying Substances in Air and Precipitation
National Environmental Monitoring in Sweden. The project is included in a European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme network (EMEP). The subprogram main task is to check if international agreements as UN Convention on Long range Trans-boundary Air Pollution (CLTRAP) is followed. The measurements follow up the Swedish national generational goals "Natural Acidification Only", "A Non-Toxic Environment" and "Clean Air". The network comprises 10 stations, out of which three are in north Sweden, the two one are in AMAP area. Air chemistry is monitored by diffusion samplers. The following compounds are measured: SO2, SO4, tot-NH4, tot-NO3, soot, NO2. Precipitation quality is monitored following measured compounds: SO4-S, NO-N, Cl, NH4-N, Ca, Mg, Na, K, pH, EC. Metals in air and precipitation are analysed only at one north station (Bredkälen), and include: As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn, V, Hg, methyl-Hg.

Additional parameter groups: Eutrophication; SO2, SO4-S, NO2, NO-N, NH4, NH3, Cl, Na, K, Ca, Mg, pH, electro-conductivity.
In Sweden the daily monitoring within EMEP network comprises 10 stations, out of which three are in northern Sweden, two in AMAP area: Esrange (X:7541523, Y:1721062), Vindeln (X: 7133047, Y:1692049)and Bredkälen station (X:7082482, Y:1476907)close to AMAP area.
Results are available on the Swedish Environmental Research Institutes (IVL) websities: (www.ivl.se); (www3.ivl.se/miljo/) and (www3.ivl.se/miljo/db/IVL_luft_registersida.htm). Data by station from clickable map. Search directly in the database. Results from the Swedish EMEP-programme are published annually in Swedish, together with results from the Swedish Precipitation Chemistry Network (www.emep.int/), and on Swedish Environmental Monitoring North of 60oN website: http://monitoringn60.slu.se/. Results are also reported to the EMEP database at NILU, to be included in the European modelling and evaluation activities (www.emep.int/).

All analyses are performed at the accredited laboratory at IVL according to EMEPs recommendation (www3.ivl.se/miljo/db/IVL_luft_registersida.htm), and (www.naturvardsverket.se/upload/02_tillstandet_i_miljon/Miljoovervakning/programomraden/luft/Kval-dek%20Luft_%20nederbordskemi_inom_EMEP.pdf). The programme includes daily sampling of sulphur- and nitrogen compounds and HCl,as well as metals (Na, K, Ca; Mg) in air. Hourly registraion of ozone levels and sampling of precipitation for analysis of major inorganic components on a weekly basis are proceed. Air chemistry is monitored by diffusion samplers. Precipitation quality is monitored by samplers with lid, open only when it rains.
