Dioxins in the environment


My laboratory has been involved in dioxin research for almost two decades now.  Supported by EPA, the Office of Naval Research and Industry, we have:

  1. BulletDeveloped dioxin remediation technology in waterways sediments,

  2. BulletDeveloped and applied geostatistical and fingerprinting methods to identify dioxin sources and to quantify their mass in the environment,

  3. BulletApplied and validated emission and deposition models for dioxins from incinerators

  4. BulletParticipated in studies on human exposure to dioxins in industrial areas
