  • Mercury in Freshwater Fish of Northeast North America – A Geographic Perspective Based on Fish Tissue Monitoring Databases

    As part of an initiative to assemble and synthesize mercury (Hg) data from environmental matrices across northeastern North America, we analyzed a large dataset comprised of 15,305 records of fish tissue Hg data from 24 studies from New York State to Newfoundland. These data were summarized to provide mean Hg concentrations for 40 fish species and associated families. Detailed analyses were ...

  • A dynamic model using monitoring data and watershed characteristics to project fish tissue mercury concentrations in stream systems

    A complex interplay of factors determines the degree of bioaccumulation of Hg in fish in any particular basin. Although certain watershed characteristics have been associated with higher or lower bioaccumulation rates, the relationships between these characteristics are poorly understood. To add to this understanding, a dynamic model was built to examine these relationships in stream systems. The ...

  • Estimation and monitoring non-point source pollutant loads: an object-oriented hydro-information approach

    Numerous hydrologic/water quality models of run-off and soil erosion have been coupled to Geographical Information System (GIS) to determine Non-Point Source (NPS) pollutants from watersheds. Hydrology and water-resource engineering rely on observations of environmental conditions and the accuracy of environmental data. This paper focuses on estimation and monitoring of NPS pollutant loads based ...

  • Advanced Water Quality Techniques Course

    Abstract:The development of a strategic water quality monitoring program is based on prioritizing risks to public safety and economic reality. The development of global standardized methods and protocols for automated water quality monitoring would facilitate international communication of water quality information and comparison of standardized methods and protocols. The three primary methods ...


  • Analytical Support for Cost-Effective Pollution Control

    ' Analytical tools have been developed by the World Bank Group to estimate rapidly the extent and impacts of pollution in a given situation and to support decisions on pollution management. These tools help decision makers to overcome the frequent lack of data on emissions from different sources, their impact on ambient quality, and mitigation alternatives.' Decision Support System for ...

  • State-wide collection of site remediation data in support of environmental quality objectives

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS) hold great potential as a tool for managing environmental site remediation data. While noting the location of contaminated sites in GIS is commonplace, GIS has played only a minor role in review and analysis of chemical data gathered during an investigation or monitoring activity. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Site Remediation Branch ...

  • Coastal Capital: Ecosystem Valuation for Decision Making in the Caribbean

    Executive Summary Tropical coastal ecosystems—including coral reefs, mangroves, beaches, and seagrasses—provide a range of valuable goods and services to people and economies across the Caribbean. These ecosystems contribute to tourism, fisheries, shoreline protection, and more. However, despite their importance, coastal ecosystems are under threat from numerous human ...

  • New Jersey Uses GIS, EQuIS to Collect Site Remediation Data

    Using GIS To Manage Remediation Data GIS holds great potential as a tool for managing environmental site remediation data. While using GIS to locate Superfund sites is commonplace, GIS has played only a minor role in the review and analysis of chemical data gathered during an investigation or monitoring activity. There are a number of reasons why GIS has not become commonplace in the ...
