Under climate-change conditions, temporary rivers will be the dominant surface-water bodies of the Mediterranean region. In order to manage this kind of water body appropriately, it is necessary to understand the chemical and ecological processes that involve hazardous substances in these environments. The processes during the dry phase have an important influence on the mobility and the availability of hazardous substances. This critical review presents the state of knowledge on the fate and the monitoring of hazardous substances in temporary rivers and highlights future trends in research in this field
