Use of FOREGS data

The following papers use data from the FOREGS/EGS Geochemical Atlas of Europe:

The following report was recently brought to our attention by Kaj Lax (Sweden), and is very interesting, because it mentions the FOREGS Geochemical Atlas of Europe and the Global Geochemical Baselines project:  Parkman, H (Editor), 2007. Critical Review of “Metals Environmental Risk Assessment Guidance for Metals” (MERAG). TemaNord 2007:579, Nordic Council of Ministers, Copenhagen, 85 pp. [http://www.norden.org/pub/miljo/miljo/uk/TN2007579.pdf].

 

 

It is worthwhile to quote some examples from this report:

 

  • Lately the FOREGS data have been made available and may be used to derive typical values for abiotic factors in European freshwaters. The metal concentrations in this database may, with careful considerations, be used as surrogates for current background levels” (p.9).


  • In addition, the term ‘natural background’ is used alternately with ‘ambient concentrations’ and ‘background concentrations’ in the documents. A more strict definition of ‘natural’ should be presented. The data that are referred to as natural background levels of metals, in the fact sheet should not be used for that purpose, since they are in general extremely high compared to e.g. levels in the FOREGS database” (p. 19).


  • Instead data from randomised sampling and high spatial coverage should be used to increase the realism of such scenarios. The FOREGS database may be used to choose typical values for abiotic factors and the metal concentrations in this database may be used as surrogates for current background levels in remote areas. Surrogates for natural background levels may be found in far north. However, the definition of current and natural background level is a complicated issue” (p.22).


  • The second example is taken from the European geological mapping programme of FOREGS (see http://weppi.gtk.fi/publ/foregsatlas/). This sampling programme is based on the same statistical criteria as are used in the global mapping programme. That is, randomised sampling and high coverage of the EU countries. This approach will certainly produce data spatially more representative for the EU than aforementioned data sets. Thus, the aim of this mapping programme is in FOREGS own words ‘to show the actual situation within Europe’”.

 

 

Conclusions:

  1. Representative data sets in space may rest on randomised sampling and high spatial coverage, as practised by FOREGS.

  2. FOREGS water chemical data are to prefer before biased data sets, when calculating “worst case” scenarios for the EU.

  3. FOREGS data may be used as surrogates for current background metal levels in remote areas. Surrogates for natural background levels may be found in far north (National databases).

  4. However, the definition of current and natural background level is a complicated issue depending on several factors (fact sheet 3, 1.2.5)” (p.56).

     

It is quite apparent from the above that the approach used in the Global Geochemical Baselines project is gradually being accepted by other scientists
