  • Contaminated Sediments

    When discussing the issue of contamination of the aquatic environment, water pollution is still the major aspect that has been regulated and extensively studied, but poor attention has been devoted to sediments. Sediments have been described as the sink or storage place and a source for contaminants entering river systems through various pathways. ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants

    Since the mid 1990s, legal action to eliminate persistent organic pollutants (POPs) has started resulting in a global Convention on POPs, the Stockholm Convention, and a regional Protocol under the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (UN-ECE LRTAP Convention). POPs are characterized by long half-lives, persistence in the ...

  • Dioxins and Health

    'This book deserves much praise. It assembles and presents an enormous amount of information in a very readable manner. Although each chapter is the product of different authors, the writing is surprisingly uniform....Dioxins and Health is an important and useful book that belongs in most institutional libraries, as well as in the libraries ...

  • The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Environment

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds of natural or anthropogenic origin that resist photolytic, chemical and biological degradation. They are characterized by low water solubility and high lipid solubility, resulting in bioaccumulation in fatty tissues of living organisms. These properties of unusual high persistence and ...

    Leadership is the guide to safety. Reach for the highest safety standards and aim for zero accidents at work. Be inspired as this safety training course explains the leader's role in a pro-active safety program. And who better to do this than someone who achieved what was said to be impossible: Buzz Aldrin. A zero-accident rate may be a giant ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants

    Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) continue to be the subject of concern amongst the public, as well as the scientific and policy-making communities. These concerns are exemplified by the international efforts co-ordinated by the United Nations' Environment Programme and the +Economic Commission for Europe. Whilst the ultimate origin of ...

  • Marine Organic Matter: Biomarkers, Isotopes and DNA

    The oceans contain a great biodiversity of marine organisms. They include a rich variety of unusual genes and biochemistries and hence a diverse array of organic compounds ranging from colourful carotenoids and chlorophylls to lipids with structures ranging from the simple to the complex. This volume brings together ten chapters on the occurrence ...

  • The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the North Sea

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are harmful to human health and to the environment. Their fate in the marine environment is not yet fully understood. An ocean model (FANTOM) has been developed to investigate the fate of selected POPs in the North Sea. The main focus of the model is on quantifying the distribution of POPs and their aquatic ...
