  • Chemicals risk assessment: Baltic study recommends more monitoring of emerging pollutants

    Chemicals are everywhere and new substances are regularly being introduced to the market. However, only some pose a risk to the environment. How do we decide which of them to monitor? A new study using a database of chemicals found in fish in the Baltic Sea has assessed which chemicals are commonly monitored. The researchers suggest that monitoring is biased towards known, already regulated ...

  • How should harmful chemicals be taxed?

    It has been proposed that new taxes on environmentally damaging chemicals will help limit their use. New research shows that taxation is more likely to be successful in reducing usage, as well as more politically acceptable, if it is based on a clear link between the amount of tax and the individual chemical's impact on the environment. Taxes on chemical compounds constitute a small share of all ...

  • Soil climate monitoring in Antarctica

    Antarctica, the coldest place on earth, has an area of about 14 million sq. km. About 98% of the continent is covered by ice, which averages about 2100 m thick. This vast ice sheet contains the earth’s largest fresh water reserve. Of the ice-free ground, only 0.3% is available for soils to form. Currently there are seven soil climate stations in Antarctica, which monitor a range of ambient ...
