    these areas NILU does both basic process oriented research and investigations of the conditions in society that gives rise to pollutant emissions which change the state of the atmosphere with effects that require a political or technological response Effects on human health and ecosystems are studied in relation to urban air and traffic pollution and indoor environment and toxic compounds NILU has recently established a new centre for ecological economics to further develop the research on the socio economic effects of pollution The effects of atmospheric pollution on various materials important for the degradation of cultural heritage are also studied at NILU To work on this issues NILU develops and uses methodologies such as emission estimation and prediction field measurements and monitoring chemical analysis surveillance diagnosis forecasting dose response for human health materials and ecosystems consequence analysis and action plans cost benefit and socio economic analysis integrated environmental surveillance and planning systems national and international co ordination incl data centre functions development of mathematical models and methods for chemical analyses and instruments for monitoring information and training One of NILU s main strategies is to maintain a lead in the development of integrated environmental surveillance and planning systems This has resulted in the development of the Environmental Surveillance and Information System ENSIS designed for managers and decision makers The software parts of this system won the European IT prize 1998 NILU works for national and international clients as well as own funded projects often in partnership with other international scientific institutions Clients vary from small local businesses to United Nations organisations NILU has over the years carried out many assignments involving the co ordination of international environmental research One example is the Co operative Programme for Monitoring and Evaluation of the Long Range Transmission of Air Pollution in Europe EMEP

    compounds to this ecologically sensitive marine environment Some of the most important questions that ADIOS addresses are What are the levels and variations of anthropogenic inputs as compared to natural ones To what extent do they impact the biogeochemistry of the Mediterranean for example by inducing significant productivity changes that could in turn accelerate the downward propagation of pollutants and key elements Are there already any detectable effects of pollution in the deep Mediterranean and particularly in the deep fauna Two motivations govern this project First and of societal relevance is the fact that the effects of human activities on the oceans is one of the areas of greatest public interest The Mediterranean is a clear example of a sea at risk and an increasing number of pressures put now its integrity at stake However the scale of the problem has not been fully quantified or understood Establishing a baseline of quality in terms of input loads contamination levels and biological status and effects will be a useful starting point of improvement The second motivation is scientific The present day temporal and geographic variation in open ocean chemistry is so far largely due to natural oceanic processes rather than human
