The concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were determined in 25 surface sediment samples from five sites located at Oludeniz Lagoon of the Turkish Mediterranean coast. The total concentration of the PAHs (1.85 ± 1.39 mg/kg) was lower than the sediments from highly urbanized areas, while it was comparable with the sediments from similar(More)
Hydro-chemical parameters (salinity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, silicate and phosphate) in seawater and major trace metals (Al, Fe, Mn, Cr, V, Zn, Pb, Cu) in sediments were evaluated for the assessment of quality of seawater and sediments in very small lagoon in Mediterranean, Olüdeniz. Enrichment factors for metals in sediment were in the(More)
Present study aims the optimisation and validation of the extraction procedures for the determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sediment samples. As analytical techniques, gas chromatographymass detector (GC-MS) and gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID). The optimized methods were soxhlet extraction, ultrasonic bath(More)
