Record #167218:

Assessment of contamination by heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbons at Atlas Cove station, Heard Island / Scott C. Stark, David Gardner, Ian Snape, Ewan McIvor.

Title: Assessment of contamination by heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbons at Atlas Cove station, Heard Island / Scott C. Stark, David Gardner, Ian Snape, Ewan McIvor.
Author(s): Stark, Scott C.
Gardner, David.
Snape, Ian.
McIvor, Ewan.
Date: 2003.
In: Polar Record. (2003.), Vol. 39(211) (2003)
Abstract: Assesses extent and intensity of contamination by petroleum hydrocarbons and heavy metals within area of sub-Antarctic research station closed in 1955, based on water and soil samples collected during major clean-up of site in 2000-01. Contamination by heavy metals is evident, but not at levels requiring high priority remedial action. Petroleum hydrocarbons are present at levels that may cause significant toxic impact on environment. Large quantities of contaminated soil present would require remediation processes in situ, though benefits of remediation should be balanced against possible negative effect on plant and animal wildlife that have recolonised site.
