Abstract:

The project further developed and field-tested an in situ passive multi-sampler to quantify polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofuransPCDDFs, and other hydrophobic organic contaminants HOCs, such as polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs in sediment and water column. Thenovel sampler was validated and field-tested without the need for divers - both in shallow and deep sediments at several sites along the Passaic River NJ and Newark Bay NJNY. Our proposed technology development thus continued to address key SERDP objectives, to Develop a multipurpose passive sampling device capable of collecting data on several contaminants of interest in sediment and the immediate overlying surface water.
