In Aveiro district in Northern Portugal, Estarreja is a town with a lagoon area where its rich ecosystem has been suffering from intense pollution since the 1950s. It is also the place of the second most important chemical compound in the country. Cross-disciplinary research has been conducted by the International Human and Environment Observatory (OHMI) since 2010 to assess the impact of chemical pollutants in this densely populated area where there is still much traditional agriculture.
