Description 
Summary

The County Administration in Malmo County and the Water Quality Association of Western Hano bight have established an environmental monitoring program in the coastal area. The purpose is to study short- and long-term trends and to evaluate implemented actions for the conservation of the environment. An important part of the program is to study the interaction between the Hano bight and the open sea. Data generated in the Swedish National Marine Monitoring Program are therefore also used. The program started with 8-10 stations visited 4-6 times/year. At present one station is visited monthly and 3 every second month. Data are quality controlled by SMHI.
