Environmental risk assessment of Danube sediment

Katalin Gruiz

The presentation is a study on the risk assessment of chemical micropollutants in Danube sediment.

The risk assessment has more tiers from a qualitative assessment of chemicals for prioritization,  and sediment  mnitoring planning, through a generic assessment for the whole catchment and the integrated chemical-ecotoxicological assessment of certain contaminated sites of the river.
