- ... Sediments in navigation‐dominated waterways frequently are contaminated with a variety of particle‐associated pollutants and are subject to frequent short‐term resuspension events. There is little information documenting whether resuspension of metal‐contaminated sediments has adverse ecological effects on resident aquatic organisms. Using a novel laboratory approach, the authors examined the mobi ...

- ... Metals introduced to sediments undergo a variety of complexation and partitioning changes that affect metal bioavailability. Using simultaneously extracted metal (SEM)/acid volatile sulfide (AVS) and organic carbon (fOC) models, the authors examined nickel (Ni) toxicity and bioavailability in 2 field studies (using streamside mesocosm and in situ colonization) and 1 laboratory study. The streamsid ...
