[Short version: The abstract submission deadline is approaching in one week for EGU 2010 sessions. Submit your abstracts at http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2010/ for NH8.1/BG1.4/SSS42 Heavy-metal contamination session.]
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) will hold its Sixth General Assembly from 02-07 May 2010 in Vienna, Austria. We invite you to participate in the session NH8.1/BG1.4/SSS42 Heavy-metal contamination of water, air, soil, and foodcrops.
Session: NH8.1/BG1.4/SSS42 Heavy-metal contamination of water, air, soil, and foodcrops (co-organized by the Natural Hazards, Biogeosciences & Soil Systems Sciences divisions).
Session description: In many countries, particularly developing ones, industrial outputs can result in heavy-metal contamination of the air, water, soils, and/or plants. This session focuses on heavy-metal contamination as a hazard, and solicits contributions that are applied and theoretical, in areas ranging from (a) field trials and modelling of heavy-metal contamination as it progresses from the source to the air, water, soils, and/or plants, (b) monitoring techniques, including low-cost, for heavy-metals in the environment, (c) mitigation of heavy-metal contamination in areas already effected, again including low-cost. We welcome contributions ranging from experimental, laboratory, to modelling, with emphasis (but not limited to) low-cost ideas and research that might be applied to developing countries. This session will consist of (a) an all poster session with participants brought around as a group by the chair to discuss each poster, and (b) if enough interest, an associated discussion session of one to two hours in a splinter room.
ABSTRACT DEADLINE: 18 January 2010 (financial support deadline has passed). Note that for a fixed period of time after the abstract deadline, the conveners of the session can manually upload abstracts on behalf of the author.
