Sediment Toxicity Data and Excess Simultaneously Extracted Metals from Field-Collected Samples: Comparison to United States Environmental Protection Agency Benchmarks

Sediment Toxicity Data and Excess Simultaneously Extracted Metals from Field-Collected Samples: Comparison to United States Environmental Protection Agency Benchmarks

US Environmental Safety Company (USEPA) Procedures for the Derivation of Equilibrium Partitioning Sediment Benchmarks (ESBs) for the Safety of Benthic Organisms: Metallic Mixtures are based mostly on the precept that metals toxicity to benthic organisms is set by bioavailable metals concentrations in porewater. OneĀ ESBĀ is predicated on the distinction between concurrently extracted metallic (SEM) and acid […]
