Occurrence and behavior of contaminants in the aquatic environment
Surface water and groundwater contamination with various substances is an important research subject at TGM WRI. Thanks to the involvement of many experts, it is possible to detect a wide range of different types of pollution that occur in water, whether they are macro-components (e.g. nutrients) or micropollutants, including the so-called new (CEC) contaminants – pesticides, drugs, hormones, drugs, radioactive substances, and microbial pollution. We deal with the issues of occurrence and behaviour of these substances in the hydrosphere, identification of their sources, and develop determination methods.
