Title: Thames estuary benthic programme : Thames estuary sediment contaminant levels 2nd quarter (Apr-Jun)
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
The aim of this report is to use the macrofauna community structure of sites in the Thames Estuary to make inferences on the pollution status of these sites and/or the Thames Estuary as a whole. This will be undertaken by utilising a variety of statistical and analytical techniques that can be applied in order to detect stresses within a community. However, many natural stresses occur in an estuarine environment and these have to be taken into account and excluded before any effect of pollution can be determined.
