1. Determination of Bioavailable Contaminants in the Lower Missouri River Following the Flood of 1993. [usgs_brd_cerc_d_postflood]
The semipermeable membrane device (SPMD) technology was employed to determine the presence of bioavailable organochlorine pesticides (OCs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and polyaromatic hydrocarbons ...

2. Determination of Uptake Kinetics (Sampling Rates) by Lipid-Containing Semipermeable Membrane Devices (SPMDs) for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in water. [usgsbrdcerc_samplingrates]
The use of lipid-containing semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) is becoming commonplace, but very little sampling rate data is available for the estimation of ambient contaminant concentrations ...

3. Toxicity of Sediment Collected Upriver and Downriver of Major Cities along the Lower Mississippi River. [usgs_brd_cerc_d_lower_Miss]
The Lower Mississippi River contributes significantly to the biodiversity and ecological stability of the alluvial valley, but agricultural, industrial and municipal developments have historically ...

4. Columbia River Dioxin Study [usepa_best03]
The Columbia River and segments of the Snake and Willamette Rivers are currently water quality limited due to the presence of elevated levels of 2,3,7,8-TCDD. As a result, U.S. EPA Region 10, established ...

5. Investigation of the Distribution of Organochlorine and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Compounds in the Lower Columbia River [WRIR_99_4051]
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 ...

6. Results of 1989 U.S. Moorings Sediment Quality Evaluation [BESTsed02]
Samples were taken at three stations the Willametter River-U.S. Moorings in Portland Harbor. Three samples were taken 15 feet out from the berthing dock and ranged from 4-6.5 feet in length. A sample ...

7. Second summary of data on chemical contaminants in sediments from the National Status and Trends Program. [BESTsed17]
NOAA's National Status and Trends Program has analyzed samples of surface sediments collected at almost 300 coastal and estuary sites throughout the United States since 1984 (NOAA 1991). These locations ...

8. Selected Fish Tissue Contaminant Data from the U.S. EPA Columbia River Toxic Substances Study. [BESTsed06]
The Columbia River and segments of the Snake and Willamette Rivers are currently water quality limited due to the presence of elevated levels of 2,3,7,8 - TCDD. As a result, U.S. EPA Region 10 established ...

9. Mussel Watch Project [gomc_79]
Mussel Watch is the longest continuous contaminant monitoring program in U.S. coastal waters. The project analyzes chemical and biological contaminant trends in sediment and bivalve tissue collected ...

10. Contamination in sediments, bivalves and sponges of McMurdo Sound, Antarctica [ECA004]
Data consist of environmental contamination deriving from the presence of scientific bases. Negri et al. (2006) examined the concentrations of total hydrocarbons (THC), PCBs, PAHs, in marine sediments ...

11. Molecular and Stable Carbon Isotopic Characterisation of PAH Contaminant at Mc Murdo Station, Anatrctica [ECA025]
In this study were analyzed samples from McMurdo Station for PAH molecular and stable carbon isotopic compositions to discern the origins of contaminants in the area. Total PAH concentrations ranged ...

12. PCBs and PAHs in marine sediment, of Admiralty Bay [ECA003]
This project focused on the PCBs in sediments of Admiral Bay on King George Island collected in the 1993/1994 austral summer. The individual concentrations of PCB congeners ranged from < 0.05 to 0.57 ...

13. Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in Antarctic seawater, Ross Sea [ECA001]
Few investigations have been carried out to determine the POP content of seawater. One recent investigation was carried out to study the vertical distribution of PCbs and PAHs in the costal area ...

14. Statischer Duengungsversuch Bad Lauchstaedt, Long Term Soil Organic Matter Crop Experiment, Germany [UFZ.SOM]
This experiment began in 1902 at a Cool Temperate site in Germany. The parent material of the soil is loess which was deposited during the Weischel ice age as a 120-150 cm thick layer over calcareous ...

15. New York State Shellfish Land Certification Program [gomc_231]
The Shellfisheries Section of the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) manages bivalve shellfish, such as clams, oysters, mussels and scallops. Lobsters, crabs and shrimp are not included. ...

16. Shellfish and Aquaculture Monitoring [gomc_234]
The Connecticut Department of Agriculture is the lead State agency responsible for shellfish and aquaculture. The Bureau performs coastal sanitary surveys along Connecticut's 250-mile shoreline and ...

17. Lower Columbia River Contaminants Study [BESTsed23]
These data represent the USACOE, Portland District's sediment quality data with regard to dioxins and furans in sediment samples from areas that have already been dredged and areas that may potentially ...
