A method for studying the impact of polluted marine sediments on intertidal colonising organisms; tests with diesel-based drilling mud and tributyltin antifouling paint

Abstract

This paper describes a novel sediment bioassay which can be used in intertidal mud or sand, thereby exposing a contaminated sediment to a large range of naturally colonising fauna. Natural sediment, in which invertebrates had been killed by freezing, was mixed with diesel-based drilling mud (nominally 1000 mg kg−1 dry wt as diesel-based-mud equivalents) or… (More)
