Collabotating Members

The Environmental and Chemical Processes Laboratory (ECPL) is an independent unit of the Enviromental and Analytical Chemistry Division, Department of Chemistry, University of Crete in Greece and it consists of four faculty members. ECPL focuses both on air and aquatic chemistry. ECPL is responsible for the Finokalia station, a remote coastal station, located in the southeast of the Mediterranean Sea on the island of Crete, Greece. The station is part of the EUSAAR and ACTRICE Network and reports to the EMEP (database).
