Abstract:
The 1994 Southern California Bight Pilot Project (SCBPP) was a cooperative sampling effort, conducted in the summer of 1994, that was designed to provide synoptic information about the ecological condition of benthic communities in the area between Point Conception and the Mexican Border from 10 to 200 meters. The sampling design was based on concepts (Overton et al. 1990, Stevens 1994) developed by the EPA's Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP). EMAP sampling is based on a randomly-placed, triangular grid of points covering the coterminus United States and associated coastal waters. The interpoint distance for the EMAP grid is approximately 27 km (White et al. 1992), but the interpoint distance can be adjusted as needed for a particular sampling design. With this samping design, each sampling point represents a known area so that it is possible to use the data to estimate the amount of area with a particular characteristic, e.g., the area with total organic carbon greater than 2%. For the SCBPP, the study area was divided into subpopulations of interest, including: (1) three geographic zones (north= Pt. Conception to Pt. Dume, central= Pt. Dume to Dana Point, and south= Dana Point to the U.S Border); (2) three depth zones (shallow= 10-25 m, mid-depth= 25-100 m, and deep= 100-200 m); (3) the areas around the four largest municipal waste water outfalls, treated cumulatively; (4) the areas within 3 km of the 11 largest rivers and storm drains, treated cumulatively; (5) Santa Monica Bay; and (6) the area around the Hyperion 5-mile outfall. The geographic and depth zones were chosen to allow the assesment of the effect of depth and latitude on parameters; the outfall and river zones were chosen to allow assessment of point and non-point sources, respectively. Inorder to have approximately 40 samples per subpopulation, the spacing of the grid was decreased in certain areas. Then stations were chosen by randomly selecting grid points and randomly placing the station around the grid point. Parameters measured inlcuded water quality (DO, temperature, salinity, and transmissivity), benthic invertabrete and fish assemblages, sediment characteristics (grain size, total organic carbon and nitrogen, trace metals, PAH's, PCB's and pesticides), sediment toxicity, PCB's and DDT's in fish tissue and marine debris.
Purpose:
The 1994 Southern California Bight Pilot Project was coducted to provide information about the ecological condition of benthic communities in the Southern California Bight.

Methodology:
Methodology_Type: Field
Methodology_Description:
Surfacial sediment (top 2 cm) from each grab were collected using a stainless steel or Teflon coated scoop and placed in pre-cleaned glass jars. Jars were kept on ice until transported to the laboratory whereupon each sample was frozen and stored at -20 degrees C until analyzed.
Methodology_Type: Lab
Methodology_Description:
Laboratory analyses for DDT's were conducted by four public agencies and one contract lab. The methods were performanced based so no standard protocol was used throughout the study. However, each laboratory typically follows EPA guidelines (i.e. Methods for the analysis of solid wastes, SW-846). For organics, samples of marine sediment were solvent extracted and analyzed by gas chromatography. Laboratory analysis of trace metals was conducted by the Trace Element Research Laboratory at Texas AM University which used a modification of the EPA method 200 series. For metals, samples of marine sediment were digested using heated Nitric and Hydrochloric Acids, then analyzed using ICP/MS (Ag, Al, Be, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ni, Pb, Sb, and Zn), Graphite Furnace AA (As and Se), or Cold Vapor AA (Hg).
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The SCBPP used performance-based quality assurance objectives for sediment chemistry. Each laboratory was to have demonstrated initial capability and ongoing performance. The SCBPP Quality Assurance Project Plan lists minimum ongoing QA/QC requirements for sediment chemistry analysis. Included in this data set are QA/QC documentation for: Laboratory blanks - minimum 1 per batch, < 3 x MDL Matrix Spike(s) - minimum 1 per batch; 50 - 120% recovery for 80% of the organic analytes or 70 - 120% recovery for 80% of the inorganic analytes; relative difference of duplicate organic or inorganic analysis < 30%. Reference Materials (CRM or LCM) - minimum 1 per batch; within 30% of certified value for organic analytes
 10 x MDL or within 20% of certified value for
inorganic analytes > 10 x MDL; < 30% percent difference of organic or inorganic analytes > 10 x MDL for all batches combined. Certified Reference Material (CRM) for organics was NIST Standard Reference Material 1941a. Certified Reference Material (CRM) for inorganics was National Research Council of Canada MESS-2. Each laboratory provided its own LCM. Duplicate samples - no applicable requirement for organics. Relative percent difference for inorganics < 20%.
