Direction of scientific research
Development of methodology for monitoring, assessment, prediction and prevention of risks associated with the high level toxic polluting substances transfer via biological pathways. These substances can accumulate in the food chain and spread in Arctic ecosystems.
Yngvar Thomassen - Leading Scientist
He has given over 275 presentations on various aspects of his research, of which 105 were invited lectures at major conferences and symposia. In the period 1983-91 he was a member of the Commission on Toxicology, International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (titular) member from 1986, where he initiated the development of human body fluids as quality assurance materials for the measurement of minor, trace and ultra-trace elements and organic metabolites. From 2011-2014 he served as a titular member in the Analytical Chemistry Division. More »
In the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, traditional whaling has been preserved. During the expeditionary work, employees of the Arctic biomonitoring laboratory visited the village of Uelkal in early August, whose indigenous inhabitants are engaged in the extraction of sea animals.
Fishing for salmon species is a very important element in Arctic life. Pacific salmon everywhere spawn in the rivers of the basin of the North Pacific Ocean from the Bering Strait along the Asian coast to North Korea and along the North American coast to California.
The Arctic Biomonitoring Laboratory has brought together chemists, biologists, doctors, lawyers from all over the world to monitor, evaluate, predict and prevent the risks associated with the spread of highly toxic pollutants in the Arctic ecosystems.
