Sediment Quality Assessment: A Practical Guide Editors: Graeme Batley, Stuart Simpson Format: Paperback / softback First Published: Published By: CSIRO Publishing Pages: 360 Language: English ISBN: 9781486303847 Categories: , ,

Contaminated sediments represent an ongoing threat to the health of aquatic ecosystems. The assessment of sediment quality is, therefore, an important concern for environmental regulators. Sediment quality guidelines are now well established in regulatory frameworks worldwide; however, practical guidance that covers all of the key aspects of sediment quality assessment is not readily available. Written by experts in the field, it provides coverage of: sediment sampling; sample preparation; chemical analysis; ecotoxicology; bioaccumulation; biomarkers; and ecological assessment. In addition, detailed appendices describe protocols for many of the tests to be used.
