Investigation of the Distribution of Organochlorine and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Compounds in the Lower Columbia River
Entry ID: WRIR_99_4051

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Organochlorine and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds are of concern in
the Columbia River Basin because of their adverse effects on fish and wildlife.
Because these compounds can have important biological consequences at
concentrations well below the detection limits associated with conventional
water-sampling techniques, we used semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) to
sample water, and ... View entire text

Quality Field Quality Control-SPMDs were deployed in duplicate at selected locations
to help quantify the overall precision of the sampling and analytical methods.
At selected sites, field-blank SPMDs were exposed to the atmosphere during both
deployment and retrieval to help quantify sample contamination resulting from
handling and exposure to the ... View entire text
