Aquatic contaminants - ecosystems under threat
Algal blooms are a major hazard to safe water supply as well as potentially dangerous to human, animal and fish health.
Our expert geochemical knowledge and contaminant chemistry capability enables us to assess the fate and risks posed by groundwater contaminants.
Environmental risk assessment
We provide specialist capability for assessing the risks posed by chemical contaminants and multiple stressors in aquatic systems.
Trace contaminant analysis and speciation
We have specialist expertise in the analysis of contaminants at trace and ultratrace concentrations in waters, sediments, soils and biota. Our laboratory is NATA-accredited.
We're developing new biotechnical processes and approaches to remediate contaminated sites.
Contaminant bioavailability assessment
We provide specialist expertise for the assessment of contaminant bioavailability in waters, sediments and soils
Sediment quality assessment
We provide expert capability and advice that enable reliable and cost-effective sediment quality assessment for industry and government.
We specialise in the risk assessment of emerging chemicals, assessing their fate and transformation and potential to cause toxicity to aquatic organisms.
