Standardized aquatic monitoring of priority pollutants using passive sampling

Objective

STAMPS is a 10 partner consortium of scientists from universities, commercial and governmental organisations, and a Normation Organisation to achieve normation of passive sampling methods for monitoring priority pollutants in freshwater. Calibrated devices and sampling procedures will be developed and their performance validated along side spot sampling for pollutants in freshwater across Europe. A commercial design will be manufactured in large numbers for field evaluation alongside spot sampling. Throughout, the data and methodology will inform normation. Results will be disseminated across the EU to end-users. The potential of this approach in environmental management and water quality legislation will be demonstrated, and the technical standardisation of passive sampling will be integrated fully with formal standardisation at European level.
