Fly ash sludges from an abandoned metal smelter were dumped into the shallow inner part of the Mecklenburg Bay until , representing the most severe heavy metal contamination hot-spot along the German coast. Half of the dumped Zn ( t) and Pb ( t) inventory was found to be spread from the originally km2 hot-spot site to a now km2 affected adjacent area. Wave-driven .

Solutions for contaminated sediments in the Baltic Sea region. Results of the SMOCS EU project contaminated sediments, including sustainability assessment practices and decision support regarding the of contaminated sediments in the Baltic Sea region has been most beneficial on gathering information throughout Europe. This volume of the Handbook deals with various aspects of sediment contamination such as the fate and behavior of persistent organic pollutants, the application of sediment toxicity identification evaluation (TIE) protocols, and the various ways to degrade toxic pollutants from sediments. Overall the book provides readers the fundamental Format: Hardcover.
The aim of this work was to assess the organotin contamination (tributyltin, triphenyltin, and their mono- and di-substituted degradation products) in sediments collected from three environmentally different basins of the Southern Baltic coastal zone: the Gulf of Gdańsk, and Cited by: Crustaceans in the order Amphipoda are sensitive organisms for the assessment of sediment quality. In this work we performed day toxicity tests on muddy sediments collected from a total of 29 sites in the Gulf of Finland, the Gulf of Riga and the Gulf of Bothnia (northeastern Baltic Sea) using Baltic Sea species such as the native amphipod Monoporeia affinis (Bousfield, ) and the Cited by:

This experimental study examined the interactive effects of bioturbation and settling organic matter (OM) on the fate (burial and remobilisation) of 2 surface-deposited contaminants in Baltic Sea. the inclusion of monitoring of pollutants in sediments in the Baltic Monitoring Programme.
It was agreed that first a review of the existing investigations of contaminants in the Baltic Sea sediments and the relevant methods should be carried out.
This review was published as an ICES Cooperative Research Report (Perttilä & Brüggmann ). Abstract. Environmental problems of the Baltic Sea have been among the major concerns of its coastal states during the past 25 years.
Practically all the threats to the Baltic environment discussed during the First UN Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in are still actual topics in the environmental debate and objects of environmental : E. Leppäkoski. Baltic Sea sediments are among the world's most polluted regarding eutrophication and contamination.
Eutrophication-induced hypoxia has caused depletion of bioturbating macrofauna in vast areas, producing laminated sediments. Vallius H () Applying sediment quality guidelines on soft sediments of the Gulf of Finland, Baltic Sea.

Sediment biotesting in the Baltic Sea. improvement of the ecological status of the Baltic Sea. The project outputs were aimed at supporting development of new national and international legislation concerning the management of contaminated sediments.

Historic and ongoing sediment contamination adversely affects estuaries, among the most productive marine ecosystems in the world. However, all estuaries are not the same, and estuarine sediments cannot be treated as either fresh or marine sediments or properly assessed without understanding both seasonal and spatial estuarine variability and processes, which are by: ICES, Review of contaminants in Baltic sediments, ICEScooperativRes.

Howell, Sources and distribution of hydrocarbons in Bridgewater Bay (Severn Estuary U.K) intertidal surface by: Plastic-derived chemicals were determined in sediments from the Baltic coastal zone. • Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate and bisphenol A were detected in most sediment samples.
• Sediment samples were not severely contaminated with analytes studied. • Some adverse effects on biota are probable because of sediment : Ludwik Lubecki, Grażyna Kowalewska. Contaminated sediments in lakes, rivers, and marine environments have been recognized as a source for contamination in aquatic food chains for some time (Malins et al.
; Varanasi et al. ; Spadaro ), and persistent contaminants such as PCBs (polychlorobiphenyl) and dioxins may bioaccumulate in organisms and biomagnify up to toxic Author: Alizée P. Lehoux, Karina Petersen, Matti T. Leppänen, Ian Snowball, Marianne Olsen. The potential ecological effects of sediment-associated contaminants are of concern, particularly in the context of dredged materials management.
Sediments may serve as sinks by binding and sequestering contaminants that are entering aquatic systems where they can accumulate to much higher concentrations than in the overlying by: Of the countries presented, only Norwegian environmental authorities have implemented a national strategy for remediation of marine contaminated sediments.

In total, 53 sediment samples were obtained in 8 cruises of research vessels in July–October and March–December The depths from 3 to m in the Gotland, Gdansk, and Bornholm Basins are : Elena Esiukova, Mikhail Zobkov, Irina Chubarenko.
Baltic Sea sediments are among the world’s most polluted regarding eutrophication and contamination. Eutrophication-induced hypoxia has caused depletion of bioturbating macrofauna in vast areas, producing laminated sediments.
We investigated if reoxygenation and colonization by the invading deep-burrowing polychaete Marenzelleria neglecta may cause an augmented contaminant release from Cited by: Abstract. Contaminants in coastal sediments are compared with continental shelf/slope and abyssal sediments.
Early introductions of contaminants to sediments were due to agricultural pesticide use, increased populations in, and industrialization of, coastal areas, and oil and gas exploration and production post-World War by: 6. Abstract. Sediment samples were taken in October/November in the southern and western Baltic Sea and analysed for chlorobiphenyls (CBs), including non-ortho substituted congeners, and organochlorine pesticides.

Baltic Sea sediments, and the risk of remobilization of historically buried contaminants may increase with improved benthic redox conditions and the invasion of new deeper-digging species, such as .The Sediment Baseline Study was planned and organized by a special group within the ICES Working Group on Baltic Marine Environment as an outcome of the attempt to review the multitude of pollution studies of the Baltic Sea Sediments.
In this contribution, we report the general conduct.This paper reviews the literature, with a predominant focus on the European environment, to compile a list of contaminants potentially released into the sea from sea-based sources and provide an overview of their consideration under existing EU regulatory by:
