About activity of Laboratory
of Caspian Complex Ecological Monitoring Administration
Laboratory of Caspian Complex Ecological Monitoring Administration has 3 departments.
Departments of Laboratory is based on statute of Caspian Complex Ecological Monitoring Administration under the relevant work plan carries out analytical, microbiological, ecotoxicological, biological tests on obtained samples of slime, drilling fluids, sediments and water that resulted from implemented sea expedition and monitorings by the local and foreign oil company also International organization including enterprises and objects acting on offshore, floating facilities on area of caspian sea belonging to azerbaijan and its offshore area.
Number of specialists of Analytical Research Department is 10.Specialists participate in monitoring on the sources of pollution, flows of industrial object located in caspian sea and its shore area. during the monitoring carrying out chemical on physical-chemical tests (PH, saltness, solved oxygen, transparency, roughness, sulphates, subordinate substances, biogen substances, biochemical oxygen requirement, chemical requirement of oxygen, synthetic superficial active substances, oil products, phenols) on obtained sample of slime, drilling fluids, sediments and water. The aim of conducting research is about definition indicative quality and quantity of pollutant substances by the analytic research, ,pollution situation of sea and determination effect of pollution on environment. The majority of tests in sector carried out by standard device.
Number of specialists of Biological and Ecotoxycological Department is 14.Specialists participate in monitoring on the sources of pollution, flows of industrial object located in the Caspian sea and its shore area. Ecotoxicology tests are carried out by using organisms daphnia magna and pontoqammarus maeoticustest on obtained sample of slime, drilling fluids, sediments and water. in addition for check out effective of purifying devices Biological and Ecotoxicological tests are carried out on mud and water samples from purifying devices.The aim of conducting researches consist of determination damage of pollution flow that affected the sea,pollution situation of sea and determination damage of pollution that affected the environment.
Microbiological Department was established on 04 april 2006 in order to determine degree of biological pollution in recreation area across the Azerbaijan aquatorium of caspian sea and also spreading work process of Caspian Complex Ecological Monitoring Administration basis of 164-th imperative of Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan republic. 7 specialists were employed at the sector. Specialists take part in monitoring to obtain samples and carries out microbiological analysis on the samples. Microbiology sector has been carrying out microbiological analysis since it has been established to determine amount of coliform bacteria and escherica coli on sample water obtained from the sea, floating facilities, purifying device. The aim of research consist of determine situation of biological pollution and determine damage of pollution to environment.
