The atmospheric persistence of PAHs has received considerable attention in recent years and continues to be actively investigated. Two extreme situations can be envisioned. In the absence of any chemical interaction, the lifetime of PAHs adsorbed onto particles will depend solely on physical characteristics—the size of the carrier particle and scavenging processes, including wet and dry.

The trace metal, sulphur and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon concentration-depth profiles in dated lake-sediment cores are used to establish the history of contamination of the atmosphere above the study lakes. The results from three chemical groups give the same qualitative description of contamination.

Metal Contaminated Aquatic Sediments outlines advances in environmental chemistry, effective new modeling techniques, applications for biological treatment, and cycling and transport of trace metals in sedimentary Edition: 1st Edition. The atmosphere became contaminated in the areas of high present day acid deposition early last century in Scotland and late last century in southern Scandinavia.
Contamination increased this century and the sulphur, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and sometimes the trace metal fluxes to the sediment drop over the past years.
This book describes these important processes. Metal Contaminated Aquatic Sediments outlines advances in environmental chemistry, effective new modeling techniques, applications for biological treatment, and cycling and transport of trace metals in sedimentary environments.

In the environmental sciences, contamination is usually meant to be chemical contamination and this is most often within the context of human health. However, contaminants can also be biological.
Contaminants are also physical, such as the loss of wetlands from dredging, or. The sediment chemistry analyses summarized by Long et al. (, ) and Long and Greening () indicated that mixtures of a number of different toxicants were present in most of the highly- and moderately-contaminated areas of the bay, and suggested that these compounds were likely acting together to induce toxicity and other adverse biological effects.
For example, the presence of elevated levels of elements such as arsenic in sediment may result in groundwater contamination, which can cause human disease when that groundwater is ingested. For another example, volcanic eruptions can release vast quantities of elements to the environment, some of which are toxic to humans and other lifeforms.
Sediment analysis has proven invaluable in ascertaining the source of pollution, the processes leading to pollutant attenuation and the potential downstream impacts through remobilisation of toxicants.

High tech applications, primarily photovoltaics, have greatly increased demand for the rare and versatile but toxic element tellurium (Te). Here we examine dated lake sediment Te concentration profiles collected near potential point sources (metal smelters, coal mining/combustion facilities, oil sands operations) and from rural regions and remote natural areas of Canada.

Cores from each site were dated radiometrically, and the results were used for the reconstruction of the pollutant changes between and present.

Despite ample previous efforts in quantifying sediment–water diffusion fluxes, the resulting methods are largely unsatisfactory.
