An overview is presented of sampling techniques and flow injection analysis (FIA) methods for low concentrations of Fe, Mn and Al in filtered seawater. On the basis of sampling procedures, filtration techniques, accuracy, blanks, detection limits, intercalibration results and oceanographic consistency, the feasibility of these FIA methods was evaluated.

Splenic artery aneurysms are an uncommon form of vascular disease that have a significant potential for rupture, resulting in life-threatening intraperitoneal hemorrhage. We describe the case of a 33-year-old man who died suddenly and unexpectedly due to the rupture of a splenic artery aneurysm. At medicolegal autopsy, 3000 mL of fluid blood were recovered(More)
Dissolved Zn concentrations were determined in surface water samples collected on-line along transects in the eastern North Atlantic in spring (March 1998). Two frontal zones could be identified in the research area by a change in salinity, temperature and nutrient concentrations. One zone was identified at 42 degrees N, separating the North Atlantic(More)
During two North Sea field trips in March 1995 and September 1996 sea stars, Asterias rubens, were collected at various stations along pollution gradients in order to study the relation between biochemical markers and levels of accumulated contaminants. Biomarkers measured were: cytochrome P450 level, benzo[a]pyrene hydroxylase (BPH) activity,(More)
