Dataset of concentrations of individual polychlorinated biphenyl congeners and total organic carbon in soils from East Chicago, Indiana, USA in 2017/2018

Andres Martinez, Jason Hua, Ezazul Haque, Peter Thorne & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the results of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the urban surficial soil of East Chicago, Indiana, USA, from thirty-three sites. PCB congeners were measured using tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) in multiple reaction monitoring mode (MRM), a method that provides a high-level selectivity and sensitivity for PCBs in complex environmental samples. One hundred and seventy-one individual PCB congeners were detected and measured. The concentration of total PCB ranged from 20 to 1700 ng/g dry weight....

Airborne polychlorinated biphenyl congener concentrations from New Bedford, MA, 2015-2016

Andres Martinez, Andrew M Awad, Nicholas J Herkert, Wendy J Heiger-Bernays, Madeleine K Scammell & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the levels of airborne PCB concentrations at 18 locations for three consecutive periods, from July to November of 2015, and one extra period from July to August of 2016 in New Bedford, Fairhaven, Dartmouth, and Acushnet, MA, USA. Measurements were obtained using polyurethane foam passive air samplers (PUF-PAS), deployed for ~40 days. Effective volumes for individual PCB congeners were calculated from a previously published model and included here. Further, the limit of detection...

Dataset for airborne polychlorinated biphenyl congener concentrations using PUF-PAS from Chicago, Il, 2011-2013

Andres Martinez, Nicholas J Herkert, Jacob C Jahnke & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the levels of airborne PCB concentrations from 180 samples from 18 locations, from 2011 to 2013 in the metropolitan Chicago area, Il, USA. Measurements were obtained using polyurethane foam passive air samplers (PUF-PAS), deployed for ~45 days. Effective volumes for individual PCB congeners were calculated from a previously published model and included here. Further, individual PCB congener masses from 24 laboratory blank PUFs are included, as well as the masses of the individual...

PCB congener data of gas-phase, freely-dissolved water, air-water fugacity ratios and air-water fluxes in Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal, IN, USA, supplement to: Martinez, Andres; Awad, Andrew M; Herkert, Nicholas J; Hornbuckle, Keri C (2019): Determination of PCB fluxes from Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal using dual-deployed air and water passive samplers. Environmental Pollution, 244, 469-476

Andres Martinez, Andrew M Awad, Nicholas J Herkert & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the levels of airborne and water freely dissolved PCB concentrations at one location in Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal, IN, USA. Airborne measurements were obtained using polyurethane foam passive air samplers (PUF-PAS), while water measurements were obtained using LDPE. Both measurements were carried out simultaneously for ten consecutive periods, from November 2016 to October 2017, ranging from 21 to 62 days of deployment times, with an average of 35 days. Effective volumes and...

Concentrations of individual polychlorinated biphenyl congeners and total organic carbon in surficial freshwater sediments from Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal, Indiana, USA, supplement to: Martinez, Andres; Norström, Karin; Wang, Kai; Hornbuckle, Keri C (2010): Polychlorinated biphenyls in the surficial sediment of Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal, Lake Michigan. Environment International, 36(8), 849-854

Andres Martinez, Karin Norström, Kai Wang & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the results of the first intensive survey of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the surficial sediment of the Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal (IHSC) in East Chicago, Indiana, a part of the Calumet River tributary of Lake Michigan (2006). PCB congeners were measured using tandem mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) in multiple reaction monitoring mode (MRM), a method that provides a high-level selectivity and sensitivity for PCBs in complex environmental samples. The PCB concentrations (sum of...

Concentrations of individual polychlorinated biphenyl congeners in gas and particle phases in air in Chicago, Il, USA in 2009

Andres Martinez, Andrew M Awad & Keri C Hornbuckle
We report the levels of airborne individual PCB concentrations of gas and particle phases from the City of Chicago in 2009. Twenty-seven and 17 locations were sampled for gas and particle phases, respectively, where 141 and 46 gas and particle phases were collected. Total suspended particles (TSP) were also measured for the particle-phase samples. One hundred and seventy-one individual or coeluting congener PCBs are reported. Field blank masses for all 171 individual congeners for both...
