Marine contaminant investigations in Isfjorden and Kongsfjorden, Svalbard

The project determines the levels of contaminants (organochlorines) in marine benthic organisms collected near and further away from tours on Svalbard. The organisms collected represent different taxonomic classes, and their trophic positions in the benthic ecosystem will be determined with stable isotope ratios of nitrogen and carbon. Field collections will be done by SCUBA diving. The project is funded by the Governor of Svalbard.
