Abstract

In the framework of the line 3.3 of the first Corila Program, the potential effects of chemical contamination on the lagoon metabolism have been investigated. Particular attention has been paid to arsenic, which was identified as a pollutant of high concern in the lagoon of Venice. Compared to the determination of total concentrations, the identification and quantification of the different chemical forms of this element in environmental samples is of fundamental importance from an ecotoxicological point of view. This study therefore focused on arsenic speciation, for which a lack of information in the lagoon of Venice exists.
