|Title:||Assessment of the quality of the Danube Delta aquatic ecosystem – surface water and sediment||Authors:||Vosniakos, Fokion
|Keywords:||Danube Delta;Water;Sediment;Physico-chemical characterisation;Pollution;PAH||Issue Date:||2008||Publisher:||SciBulCom Ltd||Abstract:||
The main objective of this paper is to provide data on the Danube Delta aquatic ecosystem
quality (surface water and sediment). the samples were collected during the period May-October
of the two consecutive years: 2005 and 2006 from Uzlina and Murighiol locations situated on Sf.
Gheorghe Branch. High concentration of PAH’s compounds were recorded in Murighiol sediments
and represents a significant pollution of the quality of sediment. The comparative analysis (physico-chemical determinations) of the quality characteristics of the Danube Delta aquatic ecosystem in
these two years emphasized a dynamic character of the water quality that can determine an evolution
into the unfavorable stages, which lead to worsen life conditions for aquatic organisms.
