CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS: METHODS TO ASSESS RELEASE AND TOXICITY OF ORGANIC CHEMICAL MIXTURES
Mustajarvi, Lukas, Ph.D. thesis, Stockholm University, 58 pp, 2017

This thesis encompassed both field studies and lab experiments that address two aspects of contaminated sediments: the release and the toxicity of sediment-associated hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs). The overarching aims of the work were to develop methods for in situ assessment of the release of HOCs from sediments and to assess the toxicity of mixtures of bioavailable chemicals in sediments. https://www.diva-portal.org/smash/get/diva2:1160220/FULLTEXT01.pdf
