Organotin contamination in South American coastal areas
Organotin compounds (OTs) were used in antifouling paints for more than four decades. However, due to their widespread intensive use and high toxicity, undesirable effects in non-target marineExpand

Sediment Geochemistry and Climatic Influences in a River Influenced by Former Mining Activities: the Case of Ribeira de Iguape River, SP-PR, Brazil
The Ribeira de Iguape River (RIR) was historically contaminated by residues from mining activities. These activities ceased in the late 1990’s, but the residues remained deposited along the riverExpand
