Combined effects of bioavailable organic contaminants in the aquatic environment. (2013)
Thesis
EMELOGU, E.S. 2013. Combined effects of bioavailable organic contaminants in the aquatic environment. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In contrast to conventional spot or bottle water sampling techniques, passive sampling has been shown to be a reliable and efficient method for monitoring the toxicologically-relevant, freely-dissolved (e.g. bioavaialable) concentrations of a wide ra...

Environmental risk management of contamination of marine biota by hydrocarbons specifically those arising following an oil spill. (2009)
Thesis
ENWERE, R. 2009. Environmental risk management of contamination of marine biota by hydrocarbons specifically those arising following an oil spill. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Marine pollution resulting from oil spillage has received much attention mostly due to the damaging effects it has on fisheries and aquacultures. One component of oil that is widely studied due to its toxic and carcinogenic properties is the polycycl...

Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments. (2008)
Thesis
YATES, K. 2008. Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The bioavailability of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and chlorobiphenyls (CBs) in sediments is largely dependent on the freely dissolved concentration of these pollutants. However, measuring these is challenging, due to the low concentratio... Read More about Bioavailability of organic contaminants in sediments..

The development and application of statistical sampling regime to map out hydrocarbons in sediments. (2005)
Thesis
AHMED, A.S. 2005. The development and application of statistical sampling regime to map out hydrocarbons in sediments. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis investigates and develops a stratified random sampling design for sediments in an offshore oil field environment. The sampling area was partitioned equally into sixteen zones. Stratification was based on the near-field and far-field areas... Read More about The development and application of statistical sampling regime to map out hydrocarbons in sediments..

Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products. (2005)
Thesis
OFFICER, S.J. 2005. Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A literature and patent review of current optical security techniques has been carried out and identified a need in the market for an improved optical security label to rival molecular fluorescent dyes. The label proposed was a rare earth (RE) doped... Read More about Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products..
