Marine sediments

The main classes of contaminants identified in sediments that are significant from the toxicological and environmental point of view are the so-called POPs (pesticides, PCBs [polychlorinated biphenyls] and other chlorinated compounds, dioxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, petroleum hydrocarbons).

Lake sediments

The main classes of contaminants identified in sediments that are significant from the toxicological and environmental point of view are the so-called POPs (pesticides, PCBs [polychlorinated biphenyls] and other chlorinated compounds, dioxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, petroleum hydrocarbons).

Pollution

Pollution detected in sediments gives information not only on current situation, but also on the past. The main classes of relevant contaminants identified in sediments that are significant from the toxicological and environmental point of view are the so-called POPs (pesticides, pesticides, PCBs [polychlorinated biphenyls] and other chlorinated compounds, dioxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, petroleum hydrocarbons).
