Commissioned by the Swedish Government to pursue environmental monitoring and assessment, the Swedish University of agricultural sciences (SLU) has created the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment (EMA). A knowledge bank helps to find popular science articles about findings from research and environmental monitoring and assessment.
Submit surveys, analyses and calculations within the framework of environmental monitoring and assessment and on the expertise and experience available within the university.
Assessments and data are used by decison-makers, like the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Forest Agency, the Swedish Board of Agriculture, the Swedish Chemicals Agency, county administrations, water authorities, and local municipalities.
Analyses of nutrient leakage from the soil are used both in Sweden’s international reporting and for the follow-up on efforts to reduce eutrophication in the Baltic Sea
Analyses for developing new criteria within the Air Convention for how much acidic precipitation nature tolerates without risk of harm to ecosystems
Establishment of new environmental quality criteria in lakes and watercourses.In order to meet society’s needs for knowledge and expertise
The results are used for the follow-up of Sweden’s environmental objectives and adherence to its commitments within international conventions and directives in the environmental arena.
