Description

Assessment of origin, transport and evolution of natural and anthropogenic organic inputs to the environment, including the atmosphere, the water column, soils, sediments and organisms.

Multiple methodologies have been developed for the analysis of polar and non-polar, volatile and non-volatile chemical compounds, based on different techniques such as gas and liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry. Other relevant topics involve the study of fossil molecular compounds as traces of climate change in the past and the toxicity of organic pollutants in organisms such as fish, shellfish and human beings.
