Environmental Contaminants, 2015 Using natural archives to track sources and long-term trends of pollution Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research Series, Vol. 18

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Blais Jules M., Rosen Michael R., Smol John P.

Couverture de l’ouvrage Environmental Contaminants
The human footprint on the global environment now touches every corner of the world. This book explores the myriad ways that environmental archives can be used to study the distribution and long-term trajectories of chemical contaminants. The volume first focuses on reviews that examine the integrity of the historic record, including factors related to hydrology, post-depositional diffusion, and mixing processes. This is followed by a series of chapters dealing with the diverse archives and methodologies available for long-term studies of environmental pollution, such as the use of sediments, ice cores, sclerochronology, and museum specimens.

Chapter 1. Using natural archives to track sources and long-term trends of pollution: An introduction

Chapter 2: The influence of hydrology on lacustrine sediment contaminant records

Chapter 3: The stability of metal profiles in freshwater and marine sediments

Chapter 4: Calculating rates and dates and interpreting contaminant profiles in biomixed sediments.

Chapter 5: Contaminants in marine sedimentary deposits from coal fly ash during the Latest Permian Extinction

Chapter 6: Lake sediment records of preindustrial metal pollution

Chapter 7: Lacustrine archives of metals from mining and other industrial activities - a geochemical approach

Chapter 8: Organic pollutants in sediment core archives

Chapter 9: Environmental archives of contaminant particles

Chapter 10: Long range atmospheric transport in Arctic regions using lake sediments

Chapter 11: Tracking long-range atmospheric transport of trace metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and organohalogen compounds using lake sediments of mountain regions

Chapter 12: Tracking contaminant transport from biovectors

Chapter 13: Using peat records as natural archives of past atmospheric metal deposition

Chapter 14: Historical contaminant records from sclerochronological archives

Chapter 15: Contaminant records in ice cores

Chapter 16: Use of catalogued long-term biological collections and samples for determining changes in contaminant exposure to organisms

Chapter 17: Using natural archives to track sources and long-term trends of pollution: Some final thoughts and suggestions for future directions

Summarizes the use of natural archives to assess human impacts on the environment and the history of contamination

Broadens the understanding to those who assess the environmental impacts of human activities

Maximizes reader insights into topics such as the influence of hydrology on lacustrine sediment contaminant records, lake sediment records of preindustrial metal pollution

Organic pollutants in sediment core archives, contaminant records in ice cores, and more
