The Use of the Fluorescence to the Study of the Water Quality
MetadataShow full item record
We present a work proposal now in course that is based on the study of the fluorescence in cyanobacteria and toxicity, and the possibility of detecting their presence in freshwater environment, with a direct application in water assessment. The proposal is a consequence of a previous study about the fluorescence generated by hydrocarbon residue on the sea surface. In the first part of this work we present a review of results obtained from the analysis of hydrocarbon samples from the \"prestige\" oil spill accident and other referential hydrocarbons. In the second part we show the capability of this technique for the development of probes to explore the water quality.
