This project represents a long-term collaboration with researchers at Naturvardsverket and Naturhistoriska riksmuseet to examine time trends of legacy and emerging PFASs  in environmental samples. These data are used to support both regional and national monitoring programs which inform government on the effectiveness of policies pertaining to emerging contaminants. Current projects include temporal and spatial studies of PFASs in otters, fish, and bird eggs, as well as wastewater treatment plant sludge and effluents.
