Effects of Spatial and Temporal Variation of Acid-Volatile Sulfide on the Bioavailability of Copper and Zinc in Freshwater Sediments
Entry ID: usgs_brd_cerc_d_sulfides

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Variation in concentrations of acid-volatile sulfide (AVS) in sediments from
the upper Clark Fork River of Montana was associated with differences in
bioaccumulation of Cu and Zn and growth of larvae in the midge, Chironomus
tentans. Growth of midge larvae was significantly greater and bioaccumulation
of Cu was significantly less in surface sections (0-3 cm depth) of sediment
cores, which had ... View entire text

Quality Precision and accuracy of analyses of metals and AVS were evaluated by
analyses of duplicate samples, standard reference materials, and matrix spikes.
The mean relative percent difference (RPD) for duplicate analyses of metals in
midge sample ws 9.2% for Cu and 5.7% for Zn. Mean recoveries of metals from a
standard reference tissue (SRM 1577a, ... View entire text
