Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Carbon disulphide (CS2) is a contaminant of concern at a significant number of US EPA Superfund sites, and is found at an increasing number of contaminated land and groundwater sites. The risk assessment and remediation Of CS2 therefore requires a wider appreciation for the potential occurrences and what remediation options are available when identified as a contaminant of concern. This paper reviews the sources, risks and remediation options that are currently known for CS2 contaminated soil and groundwater.
