Specialization Areas

Water quality and analysis of organochloride pesticides in wasterwater, natural water and water from the sea. We look for: Physical properties - turbidity, salinity, conductivity, temperature, solids among others. Non-metallic, inorganic constituents composed of nitrogen, phosphorus, dissolved oxygen, pH, silicon among others. Added organic constituents: chemicals and oxygen biochemical demand, fats and oils, aromatic oils, aliphatic and organochloride pesticides. Microbiological parameters (Escherichia coli, coliphages, enterococci, faecal streptococci, total thermotolerant coliforms and heterotrophic bacteria) In sediments we look for: nitrogen and organic material, aromatic oils, organochloride pesticides, clostridium perfringens among others.
