Accidental Spills in Marine Ecosystems
The high maritime traffic has increased intentional or accidental spills of the products being transported, mainly petroleum and its derivatives. The research lines undertaken in this field are:
Chemical characterization of spilled products
Origin determination of residues that reach the littoral through molecular tracers
Characterization of weathering processes (i.e. evaporation, photooxidation and biodegradation)
Bioremediation of the coastal zones through lipophilic nutrient treatment
Techniques for retrieval of spilled products
Ecotoxicological risk assessment of pollutants
