Jens Fölster
My work in research and environmental assessment is primarily about acidification and eutrophication, related to environmental monitoring, water management and environmental objectives.


My activities are largely related to the evaluation of data from the national environmental monitoring programs in freshwater. Important areas are:

-Reference conditions for water quality
-Assessment criteria for acidification and eutrophication
-Trend analysis of long time series of water chemistry


  • Head of the division of Geochemistry and Hydrology
  • Responsible for the execution of national environmental monitoring of water chemistry in lakes and streams
  • Coordinator of the SLU environmental monitoring and assessment programme for eutrophication
  • National focal centre for Sweden in ICP-Waters within UN-ECE LRTAP


I lecture on different courses on acidification, eutrophication, environmental monitoring, assessment criteria and the Water Framework Directive.
