Details of Piraeus port Metals in Sediment


Dataset identification

Title of datasetPiraeus port Metals in Sediment
Narrative summary of datasetStudy to assess the quality of the excavated materials from the construction of an underground car parking in front of the exhibition center of Piraeus port. And the possible effects they will have on the marine ecosystem, in case of their disposal.
Summary of processing methodologyThe laboratory is ISO certified and Analytical accuracy is checked by measuring reference samples, such as e.g. the PACS-2, which are considered unknown samples. Continuous comparison of reference sample results with certified reference values ??ensures high accuracy and repeatability of results.
