Warren Norwood

Research Scientist - Invertebrate Toxicology, Priority Substances Project

CURRENT S&T / RESEARCH - Generation of new knowledge on the effects of metals on aquatic life for the purposes of environmental assessment, protection and remediation, in support of policies and programs of Environment Canada

  • Metal bioaccumulation and toxicity in aquatic invertebrates
  • Metal mixture effects: Toxicity and risk assessment
  • Sediment and risk assessment

PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES / INTERESTS

25 years experience in metal toxicity to aquatic organisms

Developed a metal mixture effects addition model for the prediction of impact at multi-metal contaminated sites

Investigating the relationship between exposure, bioaccumulation and toxicity of selenium and vanadium to Hyalella azteca

Validation of bioaccumulation/toxicity relationships of metal mixtures with exposures to sediments from contaminated sites across Canada
