The Environmental Chemistry and Physics (ECP) section at the UCPH is specialised in environmental analytical chemistry, environmental chemometrics, ecotoxicology, and soil chemistry and soil physics. It has developed cutting-edge analytical methods for contaminant profiling in sediments, soils, biota and aqueous solutions.
Main tasks in the project
- Modify and implement the CHEMSIC (chemometric analysis of selection ion chromatograms) fingerprinting method for chemical assessment of bioremediation efficiency (WP2)
- Use of the CHEMSIC method to calculate sets of isomer ratios, and to link changes in these ratios with the presence of specific isomer degraders using multivariate calibration techniques (WP2.2)
Use of the CHEMSIC method for quantitative evaluation of biodegradation compared to all other weathering processes including dilution during field tests (WP8)
