• New report on contaminants in Swedish sea areas

    SGU has since 2003 investigated the levels of metals and organic contaminants in sediments on the Swedish sea floor, both in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. The results, including the latest survey in 2020/2021, are now published in a new report. Among the results are unexpectedly high levels of fluorinated compounds, so called PFASs, in the Gulf of Bothnia.
