A reconnaissance of trace organic compounds and metals in GLOBAQUA river basins: Effects on ecosystems and risk assessment
09 November 2017 - 10 November 2017
This GLOBAQUA workshop, which will be held on 9-10 November 2017, will compile the data obtained from the chemical analysis performed in the samples from the GLOBAQUA basins. Several priority and emerging pollutants, as well as nanomaterials, have been analysed in Adige, Evrotas and Sava in order to identify relevant multi-stress situations across these basins of study. With these data it is possible to study the fate and behaviour of these pollutants under multiple-stress conditions and their potential effects on ecosystems as well as their associated risk. As a further step the preliminary results of the controlled field experiments and manipulative laboratory experiments testing the effects of multiple pressures on fate and behaviour of pollutants will be also presented.
