Kartläggning av befintligt dataunderlag för den kemiska statusen i sjön Näsnaren : Finns tillräckliga data för fattandet av beslut gällande åtgärder?

Sammanfattning: Pollutants and contaminants are a huge problem in the world. To protect the natural environment and human health, countries within the EU have worked together to develop different protection programs. Natura 2000-sites is an example of one of these programs. Certain areas were chosen to be part of this program due to their extreme sensitivity to changes in ecosystems and biodiversity. Therefore, these particular areas are extra important to preserve by working towards and reaching a good chemical and ecological status.  This study focus on a Natura 2000-site, where the chemical status does not meet the criteria. The site is lake Näsnaren, located in the county of Södermanland, Sweden. The objective of this study was to analyze the contamination data from sediment samples, obtained at the Environmental office in Katrineholm. However, unfortunately I discovered that the data is lacking important information, in order to reconstruct the status of Näsnaren. It is thus difficult to interpret if there are real trends in the contaminant concentrations and if the current data is enough to make decisions for potential measures. The conclusion is that more controlled sediment sampling has to be conducted in order to evaluate the status of Näsnaren.
