Workshop on oil and chemical spills in the marine environment: Chemical and ecotoxicological assessments
The EU-funded TOXPROF and RAMOCS projects have helped advance our knowledge of how accidental spills of oils and chemicals can affect the marine environment and have led to improved risk assessment tools. The outcome of these projects will be presented in an open workshop in Barcelona, Spain, October 17, 2011.
- Date: October 17, 2011
- Venue: Centro de Investigación y Desarrollo (CID-CSIC), Jordi Girona, 18, Barcelona, Spain
- Registration deadline: October 1st
The seminar is of interest to researchers and environmental managers.
About TOXPROF and RAMOCS
TOXPROF and RAMOCS are funded by the EU ERA-NET AMPERA.
The primary objective of TOXPROF is to toxicologically profile the major oil types and hazardous and noxious substances (HNS) transported within EU waters using the suite of bioassays and biomarkers recommended by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES).
The primary objective of RAMOCS is to develop fingerprinting tools for heavy oils and new products and to assess their risk in spills in different European regional seas scenarios.
