Jamaica Marine Environment

A manuscript prepared by Ms Jhénelle Williams and Mr Johann Antoine was accepted in May 2020 to be published Marine Pollution Bulletin. The study, ‘Evaluation of the elemental pollution status of Jamaican surface sediments using enrichment factor, geoaccumulation index, ecological risk and potential ecological risk index’ uses nuclear and other analytical techniques to identify 23 element profiles within 43 samples collected along the south-east coast of the island and parts of Discovery Bay. The study identified that As, Co, C, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn were enriched in some sites and that anthropogenic activity may be likely sources.
