Sensitivity of Cytochrome P450-1A1 Induction in Fish as a Biomarker for Distribution of TCDD and TCDF in the Willamette River,Oregon
Entry ID: BESTsed03

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Sampling sites were selected based upon possible industrial pollution
sources. Surface sediment at six stations in the Willamette River
mainstem and Middle Fork were sampled for dioxins and furans. A
control site upstream from a bleached-kraft pulp mill discharge (RK
232), a site below a municipal sewage outfall (RK 206), and a site
adjacent to an industrtial waste dump contaminated with
