Reviews the use of persistence in hazard evaluation and persistence measures as applied to metals. Evaluates current uses of bioaccumulation in aquatic species and aquatic-linked food chains. Presents toxicity procedures used for assessment. Examines terrestrial ecosystems. Provides a complete set of references. Current procedures used for hazard identification and classification are based on persistence, bioaccumulation, and toxicity measurements. Assessing the Hazard of Metals and Inorganic Metal Substances in Aquatic and Terrestrial Systems provides the basis for improvements to the current model for hazard assessment. This book reviews the scientific underpinnings of the use of persistence as applied to metals, including bioavailability, and the use of bioaccumulation to evaluate aquatic species and aquatic-linked food chains. It also examines toxicity procedures as used within PBT approaches and examines measures for metals in terrestrial ecosystems, seeking improvements or alternatives
