Fate of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in marine tropical food webs


The project is to investigate the pathway and the amount of PAHs transported into different levels of food webs (e.g. phytoplankton, corals) within marine tropical area. The study can help to understand the pollutant transport mechanisms and can benefit the local decision makers to set environmental benchmarks to regulate the discharges of pollutants, since Saudi Arabia is one of the largest oil producing countries in the world where the risk of PAHs contamination could be possibly higher than other regions.arent-Colony-14K.jpg
