Characterisation and source apportionment of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the sediments of Brisbane River

Ogogo, Nduka Kenneth (2013) Characterisation and source apportionment of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the sediments of Brisbane River. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The thesis was a step forward in predicting the levels and sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sediments of Brisbane river, especially after the Brisbane floods in 2011. It employed different statistical techniques to provide valuable information that may assist source control and formulation of pollution mitigation measures for the river.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
