Sediments from the Atlantic coast of Spain have been studied to evaluate environmental quality by using an integrated approach including chemical and toxicological data and show that in general, stations located in the Ría of Huelva were associated with heavy metal contamination and with the highest toxicity.
Development of site-specific sediment quality guidelines for North and South Atlantic littoral zones: comparison against national and international sediment quality benchmarks.
Bioavailability of heavy metals bound to estuarine sediments as a function of pH and salinity values
Abstract The role of two key-variables such as pH and salinity in chemical speciation and bioavailability of heavy metals originated by mining activities bound to sediments was evaluated under…
