Occurrence, distribution and environmental risk of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) in coastal and ocean waters from the Gulf of Cadiz (SW Spain).
In this study, we have evaluated the occurrence and distribution of 78 pharmaceuticals in different aquatic marine environments from the Gulf of Cadiz (SW Spain) for the first time. The obtainedExpand

Monitoring the occurrence of pharmaceuticals in soils irrigated with reclaimed wastewater.
The use of reclaimed wastewater for irrigation is foreseen as a possible strategy to mitigate the pressure on water resources in dry regions. However, there is the risk of potential accumulation ofExpand

Tracking sewage derived contamination in riverine settings by analysis of synthetic surfactants.
A study has been made of the presence and reactivity of the most commonly used surfactants, both anionic (linear alkylbenzene sulfonates, LAS, and alkyl ethoxysulfates, AES) and non-ionic (alcoholExpand

Determining the distribution of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) in soils and sediments by pressurized hot water extraction (PHWE).
The occurrence of pharmaceutically active compounds (PhACs) in the environment may pose a potential risk for humans and ecosystems. Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are recognized as one of theExpand

Effects of extreme rainfall events on the distribution of selected emerging contaminants in surface and groundwater: The Guadalete River basin (SW, Spain).
This study is focused on the Guadalete River basin (SW, Spain), where extreme weather conditions have become common, with and alternation between periods of drought and extreme rainfall events.Expand

Occurrence and spatial distribution of legacy and emerging organic pollutants in marine sediments from the Atlantic coast (Andalusia, SW Spain).
Contamination of aquatic systems by no longer used but very persistent compounds (e.g., organochlorine pesticides) and newly detected chemicals, such as personal care products (PCPs), represents aExpand

Vertical distribution profiles and diagenetic fate of synthetic surfactants in marine and freshwater sediments.
This manuscript deals with the presence and degradation of the most commonly-used surfactants, including anionic (linear alkylbenzene sulfonates, LAS, and alkyl ethoxysulfates, AES) and non-ionicExpand

Occurrence and spatial distribution of emerging contaminants in the unsaturated zone. case study: Guadalete River basin (Cadiz, Spain).
Irrigation with reclaimed water is becoming a common practice in arid- and semi-arid regions as a consequence of structural water resource scarcity. This practice can lead to contamination of theExpand

Sorption and degradation of contaminants of emerging concern in soils under aerobic and anaerobic conditions.
Large quantities of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) are susceptible of entering the terrestrial environments through the application of recycled wastewater, manures, and biosolids, resultingExpand

Removal of personal care products (PCPs) in wastewater and sludge treatment and their occurrence in receiving soils.
Clean water is one of the main resources for key activities such as agriculture, power generation, and public and industrial supplies. However, once wastewater generated by these activities isExpand
