My project aims to assess the occurrence, fate and dynamics of the currently active antifouling booster biocides in the aquatic environment. During the project we aim to establish up-to-date analytical methods capable of accurately analysing antifouling biocides in both surface waters and sediments. We aim to employ these methods to monitor the antifouling biocides in marinas around the baltic sea. Moreover, the project will explore leaching and degradation rates of the biocides used in antifouling paints.

In short, we aim to investigate the environmental dynamics of the currently active antifouling biocides, with special regards to covering emission sources and removal rates.
