ITOPF in partnership with the Danish Institute of Biosciences delivered a workshop on environmental monitoring in Copenhagen on 25th February. Franck Laruelle and Miguel Patel were the trainers for ITOPF. They gave presentations on the role of ITOPF in pollution incidents and provided an international perspective on post-spill monitoring, drawing upon individual case studies. The workshop was attended by 20 representatives from various departments of the Institute, the Danish Navy, the Greenland Ministry of Nature, Environment and Justice and the Greenland Ministry of Mineral Resources and provided a useful overview of the environmental studies to undertake should a spill occur in the region.
