OSPAR CEMP Assessment

Many man-made and naturally occurring chemicals end up in the North-East Atlantic as a result of land-based and sea-based human activities. Some of these chemicals are hazardous for the marine environment

The data collected under the OSPAR Coordinated Environmental Monitoring Programmes (CEMP) for North-East Atlantic contaminants in biota, sediment and water are quality controlled and hosted at ICES. These data are assessed annually by the OSPAR working group on Monitoring and on Trends and Effects of Substances in the Marine Environment (MIME); the results are presented using the application available here.

Development of this tool was funded by the OSPAR Commission
