Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Human activities have long been identified to be the main contributor to the perturbation of metallic cycle. However, relatively little is known about how such perturbations interact or influence between different environmental media (e.g. atmospheric deposition as the major transport pathway of delivering Hg to the oceans and lakes and the consumption of contaminated fishes taken from such aquifers as the major uptake route of Hg by humans). In the recognition of the complexities involved in the environmental cycling of hazardous metal species, issues related to their pollution have nowadays often been treated as one of the major issues in the environmental societies and agencies. The ability to rapidly detect environmentally significant metallic components is hence important to account for various environmental processes regulating their cycle. In this special issue, researchers are invited to present articles emphasizing the sensing (or monitoring) techniques for metallic species in all chemical forms (elemental, ionic, organic/inorganic phase, salt, etc) in all types of environmental media. Submissions can be made either in research paper or review paper.
