- Water@Wayne Seminar: "Are Contaminated Sediments an Important Ecosystem Stressor?"
- January 9 2014 at 2:30 PMWelcome CenterThe Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne Seminar on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at the Wayne State University Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren, Detroit, MI. The guest presenter will be Dr. Allen Burton, Professor in the School of Natural Resources & Environment and in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences, and Director of both the Water Center and the Cooperative Institute of Limnology and Ecosystems Research at the University of Michigan. His presentation is titled: "Are Contaminated Sediments an Important Ecosystem Stressor". Contaminated sediments are frequently implicted as a major stressor requiring remediation based on exceedances of sediment quality guidelines. These situations often are in human dominated waterways with other coexisting stressors. Decisions on risk and remediation rarely consider all co-existing stressors and realistic linkages between exposure and effects. Examples of various in situ-based approaches will be presented, including; passive samplers, caged organisms, colonization and transplanted organisms where exposure compartments include overlying waters, storm waters, upwellings, sediment-water interfaces, biofilms, surficial sediments and pore waters. A small reception will follow in the Welcome Center Lobby.
