Special Issue "Heavy Metals: Environmental and Human Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2017).
Interests: Sustainable drainage (SuDS); water and sediment quality in SuDS devices; metal pollution of urban environments; drainage of informal settlements and refugee camps; Natural Flood Resilience Measures
Submissions are invited to this Special Issue (SI) related to all aspects of metals and their environmental and human health impacts. The SI is therefore multidisciplinary in approach, reflecting state-of-the-art research across the breadth of the international scientific community. Thus, submissions should cover the latest research on the behaviour of metals in the environment, their cycles and pathways, whether rural or urban, industrial or agricultural. Impacts on human health could consider their assessment, monitoring and testing, routes into the human body, associated diseases and conditions, toxicity and treatments. Impacts on environmental health may include the process of pollution, impacts on ecosystems and remediation techniques. Of interest are also developments worldwide in managing metals, policy and guidelines to protect the environment and human health, economic impacts and the needs of society.
