The Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) is Norway’s leading multidisciplinary research institute in the field of use and protection of water bodies and water quality in fresh and marine waters. NIVA has expertise in the identification of unknown contaminants through effect-directed analysis (EDA) and non-target high resolution MS analysis, development and application of targeted analytical methods for the environmental monitoring of contaminants, prediction of contaminant occurrence and environmental distribution and characterizing ecotoxicological effects. Long term environmental monitoring frequently performed by NIVA include the development and application of passive sampling techniques focusing on the representative sampling of a wide range of contaminants in matrices such as surface and wastewater as well as sediments.
