Arsenic and other trace elements in two catfish species from Paranaguá Estuarine Complex, Paraná, Brazil
Fish from the geographic northern rural region (Guaraqueçaba–Benito) display higher As concentrations in the muscle tissues than fish found in the south-western (urban) part of the PEC.
Assessment of metal contamination in fish from estuaries of southern and southeastern Brazil
Metalloids and metalloids known to affect the health of marine life were evaluated in regional fishes and provided reference points for existing chemical contamination and should be used to guide monitoring programs and the sustainable development of these coastal regions, within a broader objective of maintaining public health.
Recent sedimentation rates in the Caravelas estuary (Bahia, Brazil) using unsupported 210Pb and 137Cs modeling
Abstract The Caravelas estuary is located in a zone of the Brazilian coast (Southern Bahia State) which has been submitted to different kinds of land uses during the last 50 years. This zone has an
Trace elements in an adjacent channel of an anthropized area: a case study of Baixada Santista, Southeastern Brazil
In recent decades, due to intensive industrialization, the Baixada Santista has undergone an intense process of environmental degradation. The metals are toxic and persistent in varying
Trace element fluxes during the “Anthropocene” in a large South American industrial and port area (Santos and São Vicente estuarine system, SE, Brazil)
To assess the contamination, provenance, and fluxes of trace elements over the last century, a geochemical and chemometric technique was employed in sediment cores of an industrial and port region of international importance, the Santos and São Vicente Estuarine System.
