AbstractThe determination of predicted no-effect concentrations (PNECs) and sediment quality guidelines (SQGs) of toxic chemicals in marine sediment is very crucial in ecological risk assessment, sediment quality management (e.g. mud disposal in the sea) and environmental remediation (e.g. dredging of contaminated mud). However, current methods of deriving sediment PNECs are primarily based on toxicity data generated from laboratory ecotoxicity bioassays that are often lack of ecological realism. To tackle this issue, we have developed two novel alternative approaches to scientifically derive site-specific SQGs by utilizing field data of benthic biodiversity and contaminant concentration which are …
