Antarctic Biodiversity Informatics (EG-ABI)

Interactive SOPOPP map

We are excited to share a new interactive data map of persistent organic pollutants (POP) concentrations in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. The map was created using data from journals and other publications.

The map is a product of the collaboration between the Action Group on Input Pathways of persistent organic pollutants to AntarCTica (ImPACT) and SCAR EG-ABI.
Support was provided by the Southern Ocean Persistent Organic Pollutants Program (SOPOPP) at Griffith University and the Integrated Digital East Antarctic program at the Australian Antarctic Division.
