Distribution and Normalization of Heavy Metal Concentrations in Mangrove and Lagoonal Sediments from Mazatlán Harbor (SE Gulf of California)
Concentrations of heavy metals, carbonates, organic carbon and granulometry were examined in sediments from 60 sites within Mazatlan Harbor and adjacent areas. Regional distribution had a strong (forExpand

Trophic relationships and transference of cadmium, copper, lead and zinc in a subtropical coastal lagoon food web from SE Gulf of California.
Trophic relationships and heavy metal transference in a coastal subtropical lagoon marine food web were investigated through the use of stable isotopes in food sources and biota. A selectiveExpand

Tidal Hydrodynamics and their Implications for the Dispersion of Effluents in Mazatlán Harbor: An Urbanized Shallow Coastal Lagoon
In order to investigate the Urias Coastal Lagoon (UCL) hydrodynamics, a vertically integrated semi-implicit, non-linear, finite difference model, has been applied. The flow dynamics in this model hasExpand

Recent sedimentary history of anthropogenic impacts on the Culiacan River Estuary, northwestern Mexico: geochemical evidence from organic matter and nutrients.
210Pb geochronology and sediment profiles of carbon, phosphorus and nitrogen were used to study time dependent changes in nutrients fluxes to Culiacan River Estuary. Results indicate that the releaseExpand

The environmental impact of shrimp aquaculture and the coastal pollution in Mexico
The moderated, but continual development of the shrimp aquaculture in Mexico, in conjuction with municipal and agriculture effluents, in the last decade has created the first symptoms of negativeExpand

Trace metals in the Mexican shrimp Penaeus vannamei from estuarine and marine environments.
Trace-metal concentrations (Fe, Mn, Ni, Cu, Co, Cd, Cr, and Zn) were measured in estuarine postlarvae, juveniles, and marine adults of the shrimp Penaeus vannamei collected along the Pacific coast ofExpand

PCBs and PAHs in surficial sediments from aquatic environments of Mexico City and the coastal states of Sonora, Sinaloa, Oaxaca and Veracruz (Mexico)
Concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured in 13 surficial sediment samples collected at three lacustrine locations in theExpand
