Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this Standard Operating Procedure SOP is to provide a description of the methods used in the deployment and retrieval of polyethylene devices PEDs in sediment-pore water environments for the sampling of hydrophobic organic compounds HOCs such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons PAHs and polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs. The overall objective of PED sampling is to determine the horizontal and vertical distributions of HOCs in pore waters of bed sediments. This SOP does not discuss deployment of PEDs in atmospheric or aqueous systems. This SOP should be used in conjunction with companion SOPs for Preparation of Polyethylene PE Media and Extraction Procedures for PE Media.
