The AMAP Project Directory (AMAP PD) is a catalog of projects and activities that contribute to assessment and monitoring in the Arctic. The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP), is a working group under the Arctic Council, tasked with monitoring and asessing pollution, climate change, human health and to provide scientific advice as a basis for policy making.
The directory, which is continously updated, documents national and international projects and programmes that contribute to the overall AMAP programme, and provides information on data access as well as a gateway for the AMAP Thematic Data Centres.

This project is a merging of two previous projects: "Pollutants in air, daily values" and "Pollutants in air, monthly values, Precipitation chemsitry, monthly sampling, Ozone measurements, passive sampling. S- and N- Components in air with passive sampling."
National Environmental Monitoring program in Sweden. The subprogram "Acidifying and Eutrophifying Substances in Air and Precpipitaiton" is included in a European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme network (EMEP) and in the national program "Air and Precipitation Chemistry Network" (LNKN). The EMEP network currently comprises 4 stations, out of which 1 is located in northern Sweden, close to AMAP area. The LNKN measurements of substances in air are currently performed at 9 stations and in precipitation at 16 stations. Monitoring is performed Daily within the EMEP network and monthly within the LNKN network.
In order to assess the spatial and temporal patterns of the a-, b- and g-isomers of hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) in the arctic biotic and abiotic environment, it is proposed that: (1) concentrations and ratios of HCH isomers be compared over time in air, water, seals, beluga, polar bears and seabirds to determine any shifts in isomeric ratios and how those shifts interrelate among the various media, and (2) concentrations and ratios of HCH isomers be compared spatially in the abiotic and biotic media and reasons for any patterns explored.
