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...

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.

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...
