In the VERTITOX research project (018/RN08/02.1), where the Principal Researcher (IP) of this application took part, a methodology for delimitation of environmental mixing zones of urban and industrial discharges was developed. That work allowed verification of the existence of critical issues in establishing the extent of these areas. Such issues lie in the statistical treatment of the environmental variables (currents, salinity, suspended solids and pH), characterization of the initial mixing of the discharge, and knowledge of the interactions between pollutant and sediment.

The need for a deeper understanding of these aspects and their impact on the water quality management pose to the IP the opportunity to open a new research line that will give continuity to the VERTITOX project progress.
