Project: Application of the methodology for the characterisation of sediments of unnavigable waterways. Part : Ecotoxicological tests.

project duration
01-JUL-97 – 30-JUN-98
This research aims at determining the ecotoxicity of sediments on a routine basis - with the aid of 2 acute aquatic toxicity tests (24h test with Thamnocaphalus platyurus and 72h test with Selenastrum capricornutum) and a limited toxicity identification procedure. A total of 90 sediments will be assessed.
