Trace metal and Mercury (Hg) speciation in water and sediment in Gulf of Trieste (GoT)

Activity: OtherResearch and Teaching at External Organisation


We sampled water and sediment from Gulf of Trieste (45°44'47.9"N 13°36'09.2"E). Mercury (Hg) speciation in water was done at Jozef Stefan Institute. Diffusive Gradients in Thin-films (DGT) pistons were in-situ deployed at Gulf of Trieste for three weeks. Sediment cores were also sampled, sectioning of the sediment cores and extracting porewater been done at Jozef Stefan Institute, remaining sediment soild phases were freeze-dried by loyphilizer at VUB and further digestion was done for Hg analysis. The deployed DGT probes were brought to VUB for further analysis.
