Summary
Abstract: Wastewater containing human sewage is often discharged with little or no treatment into the Antarctic marine environment. Faecal sterols (primarily coprostanol) in sediments have been used for assessment of human sewage contamination in this environment, but in situ production and indigenous faunal inputs can confound such determinations. Using GC-MS profiles of both C27 and C29 sterols, potential ... View entire text

Purpose: Sumary of methodology from - Rhys Leeming, Jonathan S. Stark, James J. Smith (in prep), Novel use of faecal sterols to assess human faecal contamination in Antarctica: a likelihood assessment matrix for environmental monitoring.

The sewage effluent examined in this study came from Australia's Davis station situated on the coast of the ice-free Vestfold Hills (68.5746 S, 77.9671 E). Effluent at ... View entire text
