The environmental impacts of one of the largest tailing dam failures worldwide
The impacts of the SAMARCO iron tailing spill along more than 650 km, between the dam and the plume of the Doce River in the Atlantic, were assessed by the determination of toxic metals. The tailingExpand

A tropical bay as a reference area defined by multiple lines of evidences.
References areas are sites that have undergone little or no anthropogenic impact and therefore represent the natural state of an environment. The objective of this study was to test if the Camamu BayExpand

Distribution and fractionation of rare earth elements in sediments and mangrove soil profiles across an estuarine gradient.
Many hypotheses have been raised about the controls of the distribution and fractionation of the rare earth elements (REE) in coastal ecosystems. Here, REE were measured in estuarine sediments and inExpand
