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
  • 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
  • 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 ?
  • 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
  • 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)
  • 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
  • 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
  • Initially PBDEs, now working on HBCD and TBBPA
  • Also 2 intercomparison exercises
mcwg and amps
MCWG and AMPS
  • 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
