One-off survey of 2,4,6-tri-tert-butylphenol and short chained chlorinated paraffins in the Göta Älv estuary, Sweden
Swedish Environmental Protection Agency 2008 (English)Report (Other academic)
As an assignment from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Research Institute (IVL) has performed measurements of 2,4,6-tri-tert butylphenol and Short Chain Chlorinated Paraffins (SCCPs) in sediments. The study has been carried out based on Annex 2: Strategy for a base line one off survey for SCCPs (Agenda Item 7, ASMO 06/7/2-E-(L)) and from the OSPAR meeting, Meeting of the environmental assessment and monitoring committee (ASMO, Hamburg: 24-28 April 2006). These measurements is a Swedish contribution to an “OSPAR base line one off survey” with sampling and analysis of SCCPs and 2,4,6-tri-tert-butylphenol in sediments collected in Göta Älv estuary on the Swedish west coast. This sampling was planned according to the advice to the design of the one-off surveys of chemicals identified for priority actions by ICES 2005 according to points 1-3: 1. The purpose of the one-off surveys is to gain a rapid overview of the occurrence of certain priority chemicals in the marine environment. This could be achieved already by small scale surveys through a limited number of samples, using one sampling type only (for example sediments) and concentrating sampling in estuaries; 2. A minimum of five samples per Contracting Party was required for a focused survey comprising one sample for reference, two samples from polluted areas and two samples from less polluted areas; 3. Sampling could be carried out for the purpose of several one-off surveys for different substances if provided in quantities of 50-500 g of the top centimetres of the sediments. If frozen and kept in a sample bank, the samples could be used at any time when the budget became available for their analysis and for the completion of the survey; This project was carried out in cooperation between IVL and the consultant Marine Monitoring Ltd. Apart from the 2,4,6-tri-tert butylphenol, analysis of 2,4-di-tert-butylphenol and 2,6-di-tert-butylphenol were also included in this study.
