This workshop aims at reviewing both the conceptual and analytical headways allowing quantifying the mobility and the bioavailability of metals in ecosystems impacted by mining and/or smelting, past or current, activity. One of the major challenge/issues lies in the quantification of trace and ultra-trace elements in complex systems, in solution or solids, and of the analysis of their speciation, in order to estimate the impact of the pollution associated to the mining and metallurgical activity and to propose scenarii of protection of the impacted areas.
This workshop is organized in the framework of the IRSES mobility project NIDYFICS between Université Paris Sud, Institut Physique du Globe Paris, Charles University in Prague and Brasilia University.
The workshop will include sessions on metal(loid) dispersion in soils and water, (bio)weathering of mining and smelting wastes, new investigation techniques to study the origin and processes affecting metal(loid) cycling, ecotoxicology and risk assessment, …
Registration is free of charge, but mandatory for lunch organisation (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The workshop will take place at Université Paris Sud, building 338 (Bâtiment des colloques), Orsay, France
