Cr, Zn and Pb were quantified using atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) from urban and rural estuarine sediments collected along the western coast of Mauritius during the period July 2002–January 2003. The mean concentration of Cr (225.4 mg kg −1 ), Zn (107.0 mg kg −1 ) and Pb (27.0 mg kg...
The present paper is the first document of a detailed geochemical and mineralogical study of muddy to sandy mud estuarine sediments of the Hugli River collected from five different sites along its course in the coastal areas of West Bengal, northeast India. The present work attempts to establish...
Toxicants in municipal sewage treatment plant (STP) influent wastewater may inhibit the biological activity of the activated sludge and cause treatment plant process upsets. Such process upsets may be avoided if influent wastewater is monitored for toxicity and protective actions are taken when...
