MSc Thesis 

Title: "Monitoring and Analysis of Trace Metals in Coastal and Transitional Waterways", by Martin Nolan, DCU, 2020. Supervised by Dr. Blánaid White and Prof. Fiona Regan.

Including chapters focusing on:

- A review of trace metal monitoring methods including biomonitoring methods and passive sampling methods, and a summary of studies performed linking DGT performance to biomonitor organisms (Title: "Monitoring Trace Metals as Contaminants of Emerging Concern: Towards the Use of Passive Sampling Devices")

- The biofouling study, examining the extent of fouling at the studied sites, the speciation of the organisms, and some correlation studies with other water paramaters such as temperature and trace metals (Title: "Impact of Biofouling on Passive Sampling Devices and Examination of Fouling Environments of Atlantic and Mediterranean Waterways")

- Voltammetry chapter documenting the use of the ASV and cathodic CSV methods for the analysis of trace Ni, Cd and Pb (Title: "Stripping Voltammetry for Trace Analysis of Priority Metals in Coastal and Transitional Waters")
