Physiologically-based toxicokinetic models help identifying the key factors affecting contaminant uptake during flood events.

Abstract

As a consequence of global climate change, we will be likely facing an increasing frequency and intensity of flood events. Thus, the ecotoxicological relevance of sediment re-suspension is of growing concern. It is vital to understand contaminant uptake from suspended sediments and relate it to effects in aquatic biota. Here we report on a computational… (More)
