Passive sampling methods for contaminated sediments: State of the science for metals
MetadataShow full item record
This paper represents 1 of 6 papers in the special series "Passive Sampling Methods for Contaminated Sediments," which was generated from the SETAC Technical Workshop "Guidance on Passive Sampling Methods to Improve Management of Contaminated Sediments," held November 2012 in Costa Mesa, California, USA. Recent advances in passive sampling methods (PSMs) offer an improvement in risk-based decision making, since bioavailability of sediment contaminants can be directly quantified. Forty-five experts, representing PSM developers, users, and decision makers from academia, government, and industry, convened to review the state of science to gain consensus on PSM applications in assessing and supporting management actions on contaminated sediments.
