Research featured in Journal of Environmental Monitoring
Many congratulations to Dr
Blanca Antizar-Ladislao of IIE in having recent ground-breaking
research featured on the outside
front cover of the Journal
of Environmental Monitoring. The cover shows Northern
Atlantic Spain's coastal marine sediments influenced by industrial
effluents from a nearby shipyard and near by yachting marina.
Antizar-Ladislao's manuscript presents, for the first time, a
comprehensive characterization of marine sediments on the northern
Atlantic Spanish coast, and it identifies potential sources of
pollution. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls,
phathalates and organotins were analyzed in marine sediments.
Well done, Blanca!
