  1. Estimating overall persistence and long-range transport potential of persistent organic pollutants: a comparison of seven multimedia mass balance models and atmospheric transport models.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1139 (2008) PMID 18843390

    Two different approaches to modeling the environmental fate of organic chemicals have been developed in recent years. The first approach is applied in multimedia box models, calculating average concentrations in homogeneous boxes which represent the different environmental media, based on interm...
  2. A chemical engineering viewpoint on the environment.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1125 (2008) PMID 18843387

  3. Use of headspace SPME-GC-MS for the analysis of the volatiles produced by indoor molds grown on different substrates.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1127 (2008) PMID 18843388

    An automated headspace solid phase microextraction method followed by GC-MS analysis was used to evaluate and compare the in vitro production of microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) on malt extract agar, plasterboard and wallpaper. Five fungal strains were isolated from the walls of wate...
  4. The plutonium isotopic composition of marine biota on Enewetak Atoll: a preliminary assessment.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1134 (2008) PMID 18843389

    We have determined the level and distribution of gamma-emitting radionuclides, plutonium activity concentrations, and 240Pu/239Pu atom ratios in tissue samples of giant clam (Tridacna gigas and Hippopus hippopus), a top snail (Trochus nilaticas) and sea cucumber (Holothuria atra) collected from ...
  5. Mass and ionic composition of atmospheric fine particles over Belgium and their relation with gaseous air pollutants.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1148 (2008) PMID 19244638

    Mass, major ionic components (MICs) of PM2.5, and related gaseous pollutants (SO2, NO(x), NH3, HNO2, and HNO3) were monitored over six locations of different anthropogenic influence (industrial, urban, suburban, and rural) in Belgium. SO4(2-), NO3-, NH4+, and Na+ were the primary ions of PM2.5 w...
  6. Determination of toxic and essential elements in children's blood with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1226 (2008) PMID 19244647

    Recent studies have suggested that low blood lead level, less than 50 microg L(-1), can influence the neurobehavioral performance of children. In addition, nutritional deficiencies in some essential elements may increase the toxicity of lead, and some essential elements may influence the blood c...
  7. Monitoring of lead load and its effect on neonatal behavioral neurological assessment scores in Guiyu, an electronic waste recycling town in China.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1233 (2008) PMID 19244648

    Guiyu is the major electronic waste (e-waste) recycling town in China. The primary purpose of this study was to measure the lead levels in neonates and examine the correlation between lead levels and neurobehavioral development. One hundred full-term neonates from Guiyu and fifty-two neonates fr...
  8. Characterization of a long range transport pollution episode affecting PM in SW Spain.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1158 (2008) PMID 19244639

    A multidisciplinary study on aerosol characterization was performed at the regional background monitoring station of El Arenosillo, in SW Spain, between 28 June and 5 July 2006. The main aim of the Arenosillo aerosol measurement campaign 2006 was to compare the results of aerosol characterizatio...
  9. Optimised recovery of lignin-derived phenols in a Scottish fjord by the CuO oxidation method.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1187 (2008) PMID 19244642

    Lignin is found only in vascular plant tissues, hence monitoring of lignin in aquatic environments is important in the determination of the sources and fate of terrestrial organic matter (OM). Concentrations of lignin-derived phenols provide an estimate of the amount of terrestrial OM in a syste...
  10. Exposure assessment by physiologic sampling pump--prediction of minute ventilation using a portable respiratory inductive plethysmograph system.

    Journal of Environmental Monitoring 10(10):1179 (2008) PMID 19244641

    A study was conducted to evaluate a portable respiratory inductive plethysmograph (RIP) as a means to estimate minute ventilation (V(E)) for use in controlling the flow rate of a physiologic sampling pump (PSP). Specific aims were to: (1) evaluate the ability of the portable RIP system to measur...
