      In this review, the position of behavioural ecotoxicology within the available means to assess the status of marine environments is described as filling the gap for the needed “early warning” signals. A few examples of studies performed since the s are discussed to highlight the sensitivity of these approaches in investigating the effects of chemicals, including priority pollutants and Cited by: Biomarkers of Environmental Degradation Applied to Galveston Bay, Texas.

    One of the few examples that provided a quantitative description of arsenic fate is the study of Jung et al. () in which a two-dimensional reactive transport model was used to better understand the observed spatial patterns of iron and arsenic in sediments and groundwater at Waquoit Bay. However, more studies are still needed to further Cited by: 9. A mass balance approach was used to evaluate the fate of mirex in the Oswego River. The objectives of this research were 1) to assess the magnitude and extent of mirex contamination in the Oswego River, 2) to quantify the transport, fate, and distribution of mirex in the river, and 3) to estimate mirex export to Lake Ontario via the Oswego by: 5.

The approach was applied to Boston Harbor and the adjoining waters of Massachusetts Bay and Cape Cod Bay. Estimates were made of both the phase speciation and the rates of the different processes affecting each HOC.

Contaminants have accumulated in the sediments of Massachusetts Bay, typical of many coastal areas near major metropolitan centers that have been used for waste disposal since colonial times. Developing an understanding of where and why contaminants accumulate is essential for making informed management decisions about uses of these coastal areas and for developing sound strategies for.

Sediments are sinks for contaminants in the world's oceans. A multi-media model was developed for predicting the fate of organic chemicals in the Greater Stockholm Area, Sweden, and applied to.

Whether the sediments are oxidizing or reducing will affect the availability of various contaminants during handling and disposal of the sediments.6 Modeling Sediment Transport and Contaminant Fate and Transport Sediment transport and contaminant transport and fate models have two applications: (1) they can be used as a screening tool in.

InNOAA’s National Status and Trends Program published a study of sediment toxicity in the coastal bays that surround Long Island Sound in New York and Connecticut (Wolfe, et al., ).The study analyzed sediment samples in four different ways.

The long term fate of the dredged sediments dumped at the Ile-Madame disposal site is assessed on the basis that the texture and mineralogy of the dumped sediments is different from that of the sea floor and the tendency of the dumped sediments to form sand dunes that are outlined on sea floor imagery.

The correspondence between the total volume of. Contaminated sediments are assessed in two steps: 1) an initial assessment that is based on macro-zoobenthic community structure and concentrations of contaminants in sediments and biological tissues, and 2) a detailed assessment that is based on a phased sampling of the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the sediment, including.
