1 UNECE CONVENTION ON LONG-RANGE TRANSBOUNDARY AIR POLLUTION International Cooperative Programme on Integrated Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Ecosystems Activities & Priorities Lars Lundin Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

2 1.Scope of ICP IM 2.Focus of work Annual report ICP IM TF 2010 content

3 Monitor state and changes with causative explanations Develop, validate and test models Detect changes by biomonitoring Ecosystem investigation Cause-effect and Cross-media flux approach ICP Integrated Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Ecosystems Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

4 The Integrated IM Well in line with the new CLRTAP strategy, having an integrated approach Catchment approach Budget calculations Process oriented Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

5 New interests Interactions Air pollution/ climate change Biodiversity Land use - ref The Integrated Monitoring sites Countries with lack of contributions IR, PL, DE, NL 50 sites - 43 active last years cover gradients Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

6 Maintaining IM site activities Harmonisation of the network Network improvements Updating the database Annual report Task Force Co-operation with other ICPs Continuing scientific work IM programme 2010 Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

7 Work priorities Heavy metals Dynamic modelling Nitrogen loads and effects IM biodiversity indicators Budgets and trends in S, N, H and BC Air Pollution and climate interactions Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

8 ICP Integrated Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Ecosystems 18 th IM TF May 2010 – Uppsala, Sweden Workshopone day Task Force29 participants 13 countries Excursion Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

9 Reports prepared ICP IM 19 th Annual Report 2010; Kleemola, S. And Forsius, M. eds. Executive summary Activities, monitoring and data Progress report on Biodiversity assessment Report on calculation of site-specific critical loads for acidification and eutrophication for terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems Interim report on relationships between critical load exceedances and empirical impact indicators Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

10 Common workplan items Targets for 2020 and 2050 critical load exceedances Robustness Nitrate conc. Related to critical loads for nutrient N (ExcCLnutN) Links between air pollution and biodiversity CL related to monitoring; ex. Nitrogen Trends in variables; reported 2009 and 2010 Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

11 Common workplan items continues Outreach – EECCA, SEE, LTER CLRTAP Strategy Move from multiple-pollutants approach to multiple issues and effects Key issues in atmospheric pollution are multiple issues related to climate and biodiversity ICP IM already long time dealt with such combinations and with an ecosystem approach – i.e. ahead of the strategy development... Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

12 Outreach ICP IM interactions with LTER Europe Long-Term Ecological Research site network ICP IM sites benchmarking in LTER Strategic note for WGE Synergies in ecosystem/environmental research LTER and WGE enhancing mutual benefits Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

13 ExcCLnutN Nitrate concentrations - Related to critical loads for nutrient N and Nemp Links between air pollution and biodiversity CL related to monitoring; ex. Nitrogen Presented in Annual report and Official document: ECE EB.AIR/WG.1/2010/9 Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

14 Mean NO 3 in RW vs. ExcCL nut (N) and ExcCL emp (N)

15 Biodiversity Assessment NFPs of Austria and Sweden IM Program Center Towards effect related biodiversity indicators using ICP IM data Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

16 New reporting format, vegetation Why do we need to revise the manual? The current reporting format is based on aggregated data and mean values. Reported data does not allow thorough analyses The current format is complicated Implications: We need raw data in the data base Easier to report Less aggregation of data

17 New reporting format, vegetation Applies to Vegetation intensive plots, VG –For some countries, re-reporting of old data Vegetation structure and species cover (the circular plots), VS Trunk epiphytes, EP –For some countries, re-reporting of old data Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

18 New reporting format, VG A minimum of changes to be able to analyse the data Intensive plot 40 x 40 m Quarter 20 x 20 m Sample plot 0.5 x 0.5 m Sub square 10 x 10 m Reporting codes QUARTER Q,SS,SP, e.g. 132 Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

19 IM work on biodiversity develop a concept for a biodiversity/biological indicators assessment for the ICP IM data Spatial distribution of indicator species for eutrophication and/or acidification Trends of indicators on acidity and Nnut Distribution and temporal trends of species diversity Biodiversity related to species heterogeneity Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

20 Heavy metals Concentrations, fluxes and budgets Critical Load – input amount Critical limit – concentration in soil or water Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

21 Hydrological modelling with WATBAL for HM calculations Hg flux µ g/m2, a SE IM catchments Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

22 EC collaboration projects ALTER-Net II LIFE Watch FutMon Environment Europé LTER Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

23 EC collaboration Projects FutMon Example Sweden Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

24 ICP IM Kindla SE 15 – Runoff regime Change with time Higher flow in winter Smaller springflood Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces ICP IM work Climate and hydrology climate change relates to P and T

25 Reports to be prepared for 2011 ICP IM 20th Annual Report 2011 Report on LTER development Interim report on biodiversity issues Report on updated HM budgets and critical loads Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

26 ICP Integrated Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Ecosystems Next ICP IM Task Force 4-6 May 2011 Rome, ItalyWelcome Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces

27 Thank You for Your Attention From ICP IM TF 2010 Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces eddy flux photosynthesis respiration
