Work Package 1 is based on field sampling activities on a wide geographical range across European Sea, including the Adriatic Sea, the Western Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, to provide qualitative and quantitative characterization of the presence, distribution, fate and behavior of APIs in seawater, sediments and biota.    

The main objectives are to identify potential sources and transfer of APIs contamination from land to the marine environment, unravelling spatial and temporal variations.
