Novel in situ sampling devices for monitoring trace metals in natural waters

Because toxic metal contaminants in the environment can pose   significant risks to ecosystem and human health, Dr. John Murimboh   is working to increase understanding of the different chemical   species of metal contaminants, in order to better assess the hazards   posed by metals. His research seeks to develop sophisticated models   and in situ sampling devices for long-term, unattended water quality   monitoring. This research will lead to new, cost-effective   strategies for assessing the health of our estuarine, marine and   fresh water resources.    (toxic metal); (toxic metals); (chemicals of concern); (chemical of   concern); (contaminant); (contaminants)
