Polychlorinated Dibenzo-P-Dioxins and Dibenzofurans in Snake River Suspended Particulate Matter
Polychlorinated Dibenzo-P-Dioxins and Dibenzofurans in Snake River Suspended Particulate Matter (Number of pages: 37) (Publication Size: 1MB)
|Description||We measured concentrations of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,3,7,8-TCDD) and other polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs) in suspended particulate matter (SPM) collected near the mouth of the Snake River during October 1996. The objective of this survey was to estimate the daily 2,3,7,8-TCDD load at the Snake River mouth under low-flow conditions and compare it to the target load for the Snake River watershed as described in EPA’s total maximum daily load (TMDL) for the Columbia River basin.|
