Contaminated sediments: lectures on environmental aspects of by Ulrich Förstner

By Ulrich Förstner

Sediments are more and more well-known as either a provider and a potential resource of contaminants in aquatic structures, they usually can also have an effect on groundwater caliber and agricultural items while disposed on land. 4 points are lined reflecting the improvement of information in particle-associated pollution prior to now twenty-five years: - the identity, surveillance, tracking and keep watch over of resources and distribution of pollution, - the evaluate of solid/solution kin of contaminants in floor waters, - the research of in-situ techniques and mechanisms of pollutant move in numerous booths of the aquatic ecosystems, - the overview of the environmental effect of particle-bound contaminants, i.e. the improvement of sediment caliber standards. a last bankruptcy focusses on functional features bearing on infected sediments.
