    Bioassays used for Detection of Ecotoxicity at Contaminated Areas

    Abstract : Ten bioassays were used for the evaluation of acute, (sub)chronic toxicity and genotoxicity of an unknown soil from a military base and six model soils that were contaminated at former military bases with the major pollutants : kerosene, petroleum and used motor oil. The test species represented algae and higher plants, invertebrates and bacteria. The ability to detect toxicants in ...

    Pocket Penetrometer

    The AMS pocket penetrometer provides accurate measurements of the compressive soil strength. This 6-1/4in unit is spring-operated, and it is measures strength in tons/sq. ft. or kg/sq. cm by pushing a 1/4in diameter loading piston into soil to a depth of 0.25in. The end area is 0.05in2. Compressive load is indicated by reading a scale on the piston barrel. A friction ring indicates maximum ...
