Coastal and estuarine waters are covered by a ‘veil’ of contaminants which might affect the organisms present in these waters, thereby forming a potential threat to the productive food web. Sascha Sjollema aims to lift this veil by determining hazardous contaminants for microalgae living in contaminated coastal and estuarine waters, and to determine the hazard and risk of these contaminants under laboratory and field conditions.
