|Description||This poster was presented at the 2011 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference, October 25-27, 2011, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
A PBDE baseline has been established for sediments at 10 long-term stations, 5 monitoring regions, and 5 urban bays in Puget Sound.
PBDEs were detected in sediments from all of the study areas. Only BDE-47, -49, -99, and -209 were detected regularly and at higher levels in urban locations. Levels of BDE-209 increased at long-term stations over a five-year period. These stations will be retested in 2015 to determine whether this trend persists.
