Environmental systems may be accidentally contaminated with infective particles (biocolloids) from human and animal sewage through wastewater discharges, sanitary landfills, septic tanks, and agricultural practices. The presence of biocolloids in environmental systems increases the risk of human infection and disease. Consequently, understanding the factors that control fate and transport of biocolloids in environmental systems is of major significance.
In this session all contributions examining the fate and transport of biocolloids in environmental systems are invited. More specifically the contributions may be focused on:
• fate and transport of biocolloids in environmental systems
• transport of biocolloids in saturated and unsaturated porous media
• biocolloid sorption onto solid surfaces
• biocolloid biodegradation in the presence of solids
• toxicity of products generated from biological disruption of pollutants in the presence of biocolloids
• alterations in homeostatic mechanisms and physiological processes of aquatic organisms
• effects of climate change on biocolloid migration
• public health risks associated with water and air polluted with biocolloids
