A new method for assessment of sediment-associated contamination risks using multivariate statistical approach
This paper presents the assimilation of heavy metal concentration data from sequential extraction method (SEM) with metal toxicity factors to develop and propose two new sediment quality indices modified hazard quotient (mHQ) and ecological contamination index (ECI), to predict the potential ecological risks associated with sediment contamination. Chemical speciation data of five heavy metals:...
