ICES Marine Chemistry Working Group and Potential for Collaboration

Robin Law

MCWG Chair 2001-2003

CEFAS Burnham Laboratory, UK


International council for the exploration of the sea
International Council for the Exploration of the Sea Collaboration

  • Founded in 1902 by 8 North European nations

  • Fisheries focus, both science and management

  • Strong interest in hydrography

  • Expanded to include all the North Atlantic Ocean


Environmental studies in ices
Environmental studies in ICES Collaboration

  • Marine pollution research began in 1966

  • MCWG formed in 1969, meeting in Lisbon

  • Active group, usually 30 - 35 members

  • 3 subgroups: organics, trace metals, chemical oceanography

  • 25th meeting in 2003


What do we do
What do we do ? Collaboration

  • Provide advice to eg. OSPAR & HELCOM

  • Review and recommend methods

  • Produce overviews on analysis, environmental presence & significance of compounds

  • Collaborate with other members on research topics


Intercomparison method improvement
Intercomparison & method improvement Collaboration

  • MCWG advises international collaborative monitoring programmes under OSPAR, HELCOM

  • Important that data are comparable

  • Long series of IC exercises for trace metals, organochlorines, petroleum hydrocarbons and PAH

  • Development of guidelines (TIMES)

  • QUASIMEME conceived within MCWG and has assumed the AQC functions


Recent overviews mcwg 2001 2
Recent overviews (MCWG 2001/2) Collaboration

  • TCPM & TCPMe, toxaphene, PBDEs, volatile organics

  • Polyfluorinated compounds, PAH metabolites

  • Booster biocides (Irgarol 1051, diuron, Sea Nine 211, TCMTB, dichlofluanid, chlorothalonil, TCMS pyridine and copper/zinc pyrithione)

  • Dioxins and dioxin-like CBs in fish

  • post-Erika monitoring studies

  • the use of semi-permeable membrane devices (SPMDs) in monitoring studies

  • 2003 - diuron and isoproturon


Collaboration within mcwg
Collaboration within MCWG Collaboration

  • Data from 5 laboratories in UK, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands were combined to test a pharmacokinetic model of CB biotransformation

  • Data originally gathered within laboratories’ own programmes


Brominated flame retardants
Brominated flame retardants Collaboration

  • Initially PBDEs, now working on HBCD and TBBPA

  • Also 2 intercomparison exercises

ICES MCWG Berlin 2002 Collaboration


Mcwg and amps
MCWG and AMPS Collaboration

  • Both groups will gain from collaboration

  • Degrees of formality

  • Joint ICES-JRC working group (as for FAO, IOC, EIFAC)

  • Links and exchanges between MCWG & AMPS

  • Representative to attend next meeting of MCWG, describe work of AMPS group and consider then ?

  • MCWG can provide information from national perspectives, and an overview for the marine area
