Our MONITOOL partners Jean-Louis Gonzalez (IFREMER) and Natalia Montero (AZTI), guest editors of a Special Issue of the Water journal
The Special Issue is entitled "Metal and Technology Critical Element (TCE) Concentrations in Marine Ecosystems" and the "Call for Papers" is currently open until next March 2023.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a better understanding of biogeochemical processes that control the behaviour of trace metals and TCEs speciation/bioavailability/bioaccumulation and explore the eﬀects of human activities, in terms of concentration levels, in the diﬀerent compartments of coastal ecosystems (water, sediments biota). We welcome and encourage papers on the time evolution monitoring of these elements, transfer to biota, and risk-assessment-related research to join this Special Issue.
Water invites authors to provide innovative original full articles, critical reviews and timely short communications and to propose special issues devoted to new technological and scientific domains and to interdisciplinary approaches of the water cycles. We ensure a critical review process and a quick turnaround between submission and final decision.
