Abstract:
Sediment samples from 361 sites on the continental shelf between Point Conception, California, and Ensenada, Mexico were collected between July 13 and September 16, 1998. The sites were selected using a stratified random design, and of these 290 sites were in the U.S., and 71 sites were in Mexico off the coast of Baja California. For the 290 U.S. stations, five of the strata were located offshore (river mouths, large publicly owned treatment works [POTW] discharge areas, small POTW discharge areas, remaining shallow areas [5-30 m], and remaining mid-depth areas [30-120 m]). Three additional strata were located within bays and harbors, which included marinas, ports/industrial areas, and other bay and harbor areas. Another strata was chosen for temporal comparisons. A set of thirteen historical stations were chosen because of their coincidence with previous surveys, and the availability of data going back to 1977. The Subsets of the 290 U.S. sediment samples were analyzed for grain size, mineralogy, total nitrogen, TOC, 15 metals, and 5 classes of organic contaminants. In addition, sediments were analyzed for acid volatile sulfide (AVS), simultaneously extracted metals (SEM), and metals in the sediment interstitial water. Nine different laboratories participated in various portions of the chemical and physical analyses for this study. The target metal analytes for the 290 U.S. stations were aluminum, antimony, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, mercury, nickel, selenium, silver, zinc. The target organic analytes were chlordanes (a + g), Total DDT's (6 isomers - o,p-DDT,DDD, DDE and p,p-DDT,DDD,DDE), 42 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners, 24 polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and C10 - C14 linear alkylbenzenes (LABs). In addition to sediment samples, 275 composite demersal fish tissue samples representing 226 sites were analyzed for chlordanes, DDTs and PCBs. There are corresponding sediment chemistry data for 147 composite samples representing 132 sites. The sediment samples from Mexico were analyzed for a smaller suite of contaminants, excluding TOC, TN, antimony, arsenic, barium, mercury, selenium. Sediments were evaluated by using area weighted means, medians, and confidence intervals on a strata basis. Stations and bight area above background were determined using an iron normalization approach. Relationships in the types and concentration of contaminants among the stations was studied using principle component analysis (PCA). The concentration of organic pollutants in the sediments was compared to the response from a P450 human reporter gene system (P450 HRGS) bioassay, new EPA Method 4425, to evaluate its effectiveness as a screening tool for contaminated sediments. An assessment of the percent of the Southern California Bight (SCB) impacted by anthropogenic pollution was made using a combination of the ERM quotient and the equilibrium partitioning approaches.
Purpose:
The purpose of the sediment chemistry component of the Bight '98 regional monitoring project is to: 1) Estimate the nature, extent, and magnitude of chemical contamination within the SCB; 2) Compare the sediment chemical contamination among different geographic regions and among different use and/or source areas; 3) Assess the potential for biological impacts as a result of the measured levels of contaminants in the sediments; and 4) Determine the temporal changes in the concentrations and assemblages of chemical contaminants in surface sediments at selected sites over a twenty-one year period from 1977 to 1998.
Supplemental_Information:
GRAB SAMPLER - A 0.1 m2 modified Van Veen grab sampler was used to collect sediment samples for physical, chemical, and infaunal analysis (Stubbs et al. 1987). This device is manufactured by Kahl Scientific Instrument Corporation, 737 West Main Street, El Cajon, California 92022 (619/444-2158). The grab sampler may be galvanized, stainless steel, or Teflon-coated. All surfaces of the grab must be clean and free of rust. Either single or tandem Van Veen grabs are acceptable. GRAB SAMPLING PROCEDURES - Prior to deployment, the grab is cocked with the safety key in place. The grab is then hoisted over the side, the safety key is removed, the grab is lowered at 2 m/sec until it is 5 m above the bottom where it is then lowered at 1 m/sec to minimize the effects of bow wave disturbance of the surface sediment. After bottom contact has been made (indicated by slack in the winch wire), the tension on the wire is slowly increased, causing the lever arms to close the grab. Once the grab is back on board, the top doors are opened for inspection. The first grab collected at a site should be used for the benthic infaunal sample. The chemistry and sediment toxicity samples will be collected from subsequent grabs. Different sediment types (e.g. cobble, gravel, well sorted sands) and localities (e.g., canyons, slopes, rocky areas) may be difficult to sample. Sediments containing rocks create the most common problem by preventing complete closure of the grab by allowing sediment to wash out during retrieval. Some of the Bight'98 sampling sites may occur on these difficult sediment types or localities because of the randomized sampling design. Therefore, if after three unsuccessful attempts at a site and up to three more unsuccessful attempts at each of two other locations (within 100 m distance from and 10% of the depth of the nominal site), the station should be abandoned. CRITERIA FOR ACCEPTABLE GRAB SAMPLES - Upon retrieval of the grab the acceptability of the sample must be determined. Acceptability is based upon two characteristics of the sample: sample condition, and depth of penetration. Sample condition is judged using criteria for surface disturbance, leakage, canting, and washing. An acceptable sample condition is characterized by an even surface with minimal disturbance and little or no leakage of the overlying water. Heavily canted samples are unacceptable. Samples with a large amount of "humping" along the midline of the grab indicating washing of the sample during retrieval are also unacceptable. While some humping will be evident in samples from firm bottoms where penetration hasbeen poor, this is due to the closing action of the grab and is not evidence of unacceptable washing. If the sample condition is acceptable, the overlying water is drained off and the depth of penetration determined by insertion of a plastic (rather than metal) ruler vertically along the grab midline and measuring to the nearest 0.5 cm. Sediment penetration depth must be at least 5 cm: however, penetration depths of 7-10 cm should be obtained in silt (fine sand to clay). Extra caution should be taken to drain the overlying water from the grabs for chemistry and toxicity samples. It is recommended that a siphon be employed for these grabs to avoid disturbance and loss of the surface sediments. The overlying water in grabs intended for infaunal samples may be drained by slightly opening the jaws of the grab and allowing the water to run off, as long as all drained water is captured for screening with the sediments (see Sample Processing below). If both sample condition and penetration are acceptable, sampling at the station proceeds with the collection of chemistry and sediment toxicity samples from successive grabs. It is required that all of the grabs taken at a station be of similar sediment type and depth of penetration. If only one sample of a series of grab attempts is usable, the sediment sample should be kept for infaunal analysis. BENTHIC DATA SHEET - The Chief Scientist is responsible for the proper completion of the Benthic Data Sheet for each station. The information recorded on this sheet includes date time of sampling, weather and sea state, navigational position, and other information applicable to the sampling site. For each sample collected (i.e. infaunal, chemistry, toxicity), sampling failures, grab penetration depth, sediment description (type, color, and odor), vessel location, and other sample handling information are to be recorded. SEDIMENT CHARACTERIZATION - The field description of sediments is required following measurement of penetration depth. The sediment should be characterized as being coarse sand, fine sand, silt or clay, gravel, or of a mixed type. The presence of petroleum tar and shell hash should also be recorded. Obvious odors, such as hydrogen sulfide (the odor of rotten eggs), petroleum, other odors, or a lack of noticeable odors should be recorded. General sediment colors (i.e., black, green, brown, red, olive, or gray) should also be recorded. SAMPLE COLLECTION AND STORAGE - Samples for the various analyses were collected from the top 2 cm of the grab and at least 1 cm away from the metal sides of the sampling device. An appropriate amount of sample was collected using a Teflon-coated metal or plastic scoop and into a pre-cleaned container supplied by the laboratories performing the respective analyses. After collection samples were stored on ice or in a refrigerator at 4 C until returned to the laboratory. Samples for AVS-SEM, grain size, and mineralogy, were kept at 4 C until analyzed (i.e., not frozen). Samples for TOC, TN, trace metals and trace organics were kept frozen at -20C until analyzed. SAMPLE PREPARATION - Samples for trace metal analysis were digested using a strong acid digestion following protocols specified in EPA methods 3055, 3050A and 3050B. Samples for trace for organic analysis were extracted by one of following methods: Accelerated solvent extraction (ASE), microwave assisted solvent extraction (MASE), roller table solvent extraction, and soxhlet extraction. For the fish tissue samples, the whole fish composite samples were placed in a blender with an equal mass of water and pureed until well homogenized. The whole fish puree was then solvent extracted. The data reported for the fish tissues in the database have already been adjusted for dilution, and reflect the calculated whole fish concentration. Each participating laboratory employed their own clean-up methods as appropriate for the suite of analytes being measured. ANALYTICAL METHODS - Sediment grain size distributions were measured using a laser diffraction technique on one of two instruments, a Horiba LA900 and a Coulter LS230, which measure 74 (0.05 -1019 mm) and 116 (0.04 - 2000 mm) size classes, respectively. TOC and TN were measured using a Carlo Erba 1108 Elemental Analyzer. The clay mineral content of samples was measured using x-ray diffraction, and non-clay mineral content of the samples was measured by optical microscopy. Trace metals were analyzed by one of the following methods as appropriate for the respective metal: Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), flame atomic absorption spectroscopy (FAA), graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy (GFAA), hydride generation atomic absorption spectroscopy (HAA), or cold vapor atomic absorption spectroscopy (CVAA). Chlorinated organics (chlordanes, DDTs and PCBs) were analyzed by capillary gas chromatography with either electron capture detection (GC-ECD) or mass selective detection (GC-MS). The PAHs and LABs were analyzed by GC-MS. PREFERRED ANALYSIS METHODS: The station locations in this study were selected using a stratified random sampling design. Therefore the results from each individual station should be viewed in light of their associated area weight. This is necessary when ever spatial comparisons are made by extrapolation of individual station data. USAGE: There are few restrictions on the use of these data. For metals only the data for antimony is somewhat questionable as it frequently exceeded data quality objectives. For the trace organic data it should be noted that there are many data reported below the specified reporting limit, and some data values are also below the nominal minimum detection limit (MDL). The actual results obtained in trace organic analyses are a function of the analytes, the matrix and analytical methods employed. It was agreed upon by the participating laboratories that if they had results that were below the nominal MDL, but clearly above the background noise and identified as target analytes, they would make an effort to estimate the concentration. It was felt that an estimated concentration was better than reporting these clear analyte "hits" as non-detect, or applying some arbitrary convention such as half the MDL. As with all trace analytical data, results close to MDL have a greater degree of uncertainty as compared to data that are well above the MDL.

It is required that all of the grabs taken at a station be of similar sediment type and depth penetration. If only one sample of a series of grab attempts is usable, the sediment sample should be kept for infaunal analysis. BENTHIC DATA SHEET The Chief Scientist is responsible for the proper completion of the Benthic Data Sheet for each station. The information recorded on this sheet includes date, time of sampling, weather and sea state, navigational position, and other information applicable to the sampling site. For each sample collected (i.e. infaunal, chemistry, toxicity), sampling failures, grab penetration depth, sediment description (type, color, and odor), vessel location, and other sample handling information are to be recorded. SEDIMENT CHARACTERIZATION The field description of sediments is required following measurement of penetration depth. The sediment should be characterized as being coarse sand, fine sand, silt or clay, gravel, or of a mixed type. The presence of petroleum tar and shell hash should also be recorded. Obvious odors, such as hydrogen sulfide (the odor of rotten eggs), petroleum, other odors, or a lack of noticeable odors should be recorded. General sediment colors (i.e., black, green, brown, red, olive, or gray) should also be recorded. SAMPLE PROCESSING Benthic Infaunal Samples After the sample description has been completed, the sediment sample intended for biological analysis is washed from the grab and screened. All wash waters used on the sample are to be filtered in some fashion to prevent the accidental introduction of surface-water organisms. Thoroughly wash the sediment from the grab and transfer it to a sediment washing table for screening. A means of capturing all water drained from the grab, the grab sample, and the wash water must be used. Typically, a tub (>70 L capacity) is positioned under the grab. The use of a sediment washing table is recommended, but not required. The table is useful in that provides a flat, smooth surface over which to spread and wash the sample, thereby providing a means of gently breaking up the sediment before it runs off the end of the table into the screen box. The screening box must be equipped with a stainless steel mesh with 1.0-mm openings. Wire diameter should be similar to that found in the U.S. Standard 1.00 mm Sieve (0.58 mm). The surface area of screen should be adequate to easily accept the sample without build up. Typical surface areas used in surveys in the Bight are 1500 to 2100 cm2. While washing the sample, control the water pressure to avoid damaging the organisms. Minimize direct application of water from the hose to the material and organisms collecting on the screen. Once the sample has been washed through the screen, transfer the material (debris, coarse sediment, and organisms) retained on the screen to a sample container. The sample container is to be labeled with an external label containing the station name, sample type, date, and "split number" (i.e. 1 of 1, 2 of 3, etc.) if required. An internal label bearing the same information is placed inside the infaunal samples. This label is written in pencil or indelible ink on 100% rag paper, poly-paper, or other paper of a quality suitable for wet labels. The sample container must have a screw-cap closure and be sufficiently large to accommodate the sample material with a head space of at least 50% of the container volume. A sample may be split between two or more containers. However, each container must have external and internal labels (as described above) with the appropriate "split number" clearly marked. Field crews should have a broad range of sample container sizes available to them with none less than 16 oz (0.47 L) capacity. Gently remove the material retained on the screen, taking care to avoid damaging the organisms. The sample container should be filled approximately 50 to 70% of capacity with screened material. After the bulk of material has been transferred to the container, closely examine the screen for any organisms caught in the mesh. Remove any organisms with forceps and add them to the sample container. Thoroughly wash the screen box and scrub the mesh before the next sample is screened. All infaunal samples will be treated with relaxant solution for approximately 30 minutes prior to fixation. Either an epsom salts (MgSO4) solution or a propylene phenoxytol solution (formulations below) may be used for this purpose. Relaxant solutions may be used as the diluent water for the fixative, or may be decanted after exposure and replaced with diluted fixative. If it is used as diluent water, fill the sample container to 85 to 90% of its volume, close the container and invert it several times to distribute the solution. Leave the sample in the relaxant for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes top off the container with enough sodium borate buffered formaldehyde to achieve a 10% formalin solution. Close the container, once again, and invert it several times to assure mixing. Store the sample for return to the laboratory. If the relaxant solution is not used as the diluent water, the relaxant must be removed from the sample container and replaced with 10% formalin. After the 30 minutes treatment, decant the relaxant from the sample through a screen with a mesh size of 1.0 mm or less. Insure that all animals are removed from the screened and placed in the sample container, then fill the container with sodium borate buffered 10% formalin rather than undiluted formaldehyde. Close the container, invert it several times to assure mixing, and store it for return to the laboratory. Relaxant and fixative stock solution alternatives are as follows: 1) Epsom salts relaxant solution: 1.5 kg Epsom salts (MgSO4 @ 7H2O) per 20 L of freshwater. 2) Propylene phenoxytol solution: 30 ml propylene phenoxytol to 20 L of seawater. 3) Buffered formalin solution: 50 g sodium borate (Na2B4O7) per liter of formalin. 4) Buffered 10% formalin solution: 1 part buffered formalin to 9 parts fresh or salt water. Sediment Chemistry Samples Following collection of benthic infauna, the next grab(s) will be taken for sediment chemistry samples. Sediment in contact with, or within, 1 cm of the metal sides of the grab will be avoided in all cases, with the exception of grain size, to prevent sample contamination. Sediment samples will be collected from the top 2 cm for grain-size, total organic carbon (TOC), trace metal, and trace organic analyses by randomly subsampling undisturbed surface material with a stainless steel, Teflon-coated stainless steel, or plastic scoop. Samples will also be collected for acid volatile sulfur-simultaneously extracted metals (AVS-SEM) analyses using a plastic or a Teflon-coated metal scoop. At the very minimum, the scoop will be washed with soap and water and rinsed with deionized (DI) water between stations. It may also be rinsed with methanol, followed by acetone, hexane, or methylene chloride between stations but these solutions must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Use of a new scoop with each sample is also acceptable. Samples should be placed in precleaned sample containers provided by the analytical laboratory responsible for the sample analysis. The following container types, samples sizes, and storage requirements should be used with the analytical laboratory supplying all sample containers for all parameters except mineralogy: 1) AVS-SEM -- Approximately 200 g of sediment material will be collected at each station with a plastic or a teflon coated metal scoop. Sample containers should be filled as quickly as possible to minimize contact with air. Each sample will be placed into a 250 mL polycarbonate centrifuge bottle without stirring (sample containers to be provided by EPA Newport, Oregon Laboratory). Avoid obvious macroorganisms, sticks, debris, etc. and take samples from at least three locations in the grab, at least 1 cm from any grab wall (if grab is not coated, or if it is teflon coated and in obviously poor condition). Containers are to be filled completely, leaving no head space. Samples should be stored at approximately 40C by placing them on wet ice or in a refrigerator until returned to the laboratory. Do not freeze these samples. Samples may be held for no more than three days before transport to SCCWRP. The inter-laboratory transport time will not exceed 24 hours. 2) Sediment Grain Size -- Approximately 100 g of sediment material will be collected at each station by filling one 4-oz (118 mL) whirlpak, plastic, or glass container, taking care to leave an air space at the top. For the samples being analyzed by the City of San Diego, place tape around the snap lock cap to ensure that the sample remains closed during transport. Samples should be stored at approximately 4o C by placing them on wet ice or in a refrigerator until returned to the laboratory. Do not freeze these samples. They should be returned to the analytical laboratory within a week of sampling. 3) Total Organic Carbon -- Approximately 200 g of sediment material will be collected at each station by filling one 8-oz (236 mL) plastic or glass container with a Teflon-lined lid, taking care to leave an air space at the top. Samples should be stored at <4o C by placing them on wet ice or in a refrigerator but must be frozen within 24 hours. If frozen, they should be returned to the laboratory within a week. If not frozen, they should be returned to the analytical laboratory within 24 hours. If samples need to be transported, they should be packed in dry ice and shipped via overnight express or a local carrier. 4) Trace Metals -- Approximately 200 g of sediment material will be collected at each station by filling one 8-oz (236 mL) plastic or glass container with a Teflon-lined lid, taking care to leave an air space at the top. Samples should be stored at <4o C by placing them on wet ice or in a refrigerator but must be frozen within 24 hours. If frozen, they should be returned to the laboratory within a week. If not frozen, they should be returned to the analytical laboratory within 24 hours. If samples need to be transported, they should be packed in dry ice and shipped via overnight express or a local carrier. 5) Trace Organics -- Approximately two 200 g replicates or one 500 g sample of sediment material will be collected at each station by filling two 8-oz (236 mL) or one 16-oz (472 mL) glass containers with Teflon-lined lids, taking care to leave an air space at the top. Samples should be stored at <4o C by placing them on wet ice or in a refrigerator but must be frozen within 24 hours. If frozen, they should be returned to the laboratory within a week. If not frozen, they should be returned to the analytical laboratory within 24 hours. If samples need to be transported, they should be packed in dry ice and shipped via overnight express or a local carrier. 6) Mineralogy -- 40 mL will be collected at each station and placed into a whirlpak or other suitable plastic container. Do not freeze these samples. There are no other special temperature holding requirements. These samples will be transported to SCCWRP. Labeling of sample containers will be the responsibility of the field sampling groups with the following minimum information required on each sample label: station number, sampling date, parameter, split (if required). Sediment Toxicity Samples Following the collection of sediment chemistry samples, grabs will be taken for sediment toxicity analysis. The sediment collected will be used for three different types of tests: amphipod survival, Qwiklite luminescence, and sediment water interface. Sediment from all toxicity stations will be sampled for the amphipod survival test. Additional sediment from a subset of these stations (203) will be collected for the Qwiklite test. Samples for sediment water interface tests will be collected from 30 stations. Separate sediment samples are required for each of these tests. As with other parts of the program, sample containers will be provided by the toxicity laboratories performing the required analysis. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers will be used for collection of amphipod and Qwiklite sediment samples. Sediment water interface samples will be collected in polycarbonate tubes. All sample containers will be provided by the analytical laboratory. Labeling of sample containers will be the responsibility of the field sampling groups with the following minimum information required on each sample label: station number, sampling date, parameter, split (if required). Sediment samples for amphipod and Qwiklite tests shall be collected from the top 2 cm by sampling the undisturbed surface material with a scoop. Scoops can be made of plastic (e.g., HDPE, Teflon, polycarbonate) or Teflon-coated material. Scoops should be stored in plastic bags when not in use. Contact with sediment within 1 cm of the metal sides of the grab should be avoided to prevent sample contamination. Sample volume requirements for each test are: Amphipod - 2.25 L (minimum of 1.25 L), distributed into two 1L containers and a 250 mL container Qwiklite - 125 mL (placed in a 250 mL container) When taking sediment toxicity samples, the sediment from the grabs should be proportionally distributed into each sample container. A 1.5 L minimum will be required for sediment toxicity analysis, with at least 60 mL in the Qwiklite sample container. The station will be considered completed if 1.5 L of sediment has been collected with 5 or more grabs. If the required minimum 1.5 L has been collected with fewer than 5 grabs, then additional grabs will be taken until either 2.0 L have been collected, or 5 total sediment toxicity grabs have been taken. Sediments will not be homogenized in the field. Each labeled container should then be refrigerated, or placed on wet ice. Samples to be analyzed by the Organization conducting the collection will be returned to their laboratory by the field crew. Samples to be analyzed by other laboratories will be transported to SCCWRP with a completed chain of custody sheet. The samples will be stored at SCCWRP for later distribution. Additional samples will be collected for sediment water interface tests by personnel from the Marine Pollution Studies Laboratory. A grab will be subsampled with a series of small subcores. The subcore will be inserted to the sediment to a depth of 5 cm and a maximum of six subcores can be collected from a grab of sufficient penetration. A minimum grab penetration of approximately 10 cm will be needed to enable collection of a complete set of sample cores. The bottom of the subcore is then closed with a gloved hand for removal, the ends are fitted with caps and then wrapped with parafilm for a final seal. The subcores will be stored upright in an ice chest and to be later hand delivered by MPSL staff to the laboratory. Six subcores will be collected from 15 stations and 11 subcores collected from an additional 15 stations. Any sample collection equipment which comes in contact with the sediment should be cleaned between stations with the procedures described above. Collection equipment should be stored in plastic bags when not in use. Alternatively, cleaned "sets" of sample collection equipment may be individually prepared and wrapped in plastic per station prior to sampling. Samples may be held in the field, or laboratory, on wet ice, or in a refrigerator at 4o C, for no more than three days before transport to the designated toxicity laboratories. The inter-laboratory transport time will not exceed 24 hours. Upon arrival to the analytical laboratory, the samples will continue to be stored at 4oC. Testing should begin within two weeks of sample collection. Chain of custody procedures should be followed throughout the sampling and analysis procedures.

Process_Description:
Each field crew or laboratory that generated data entered it into their own data management system and subjected it to their internal QA/QC procedures. Recommended QA procedures included double entry of data and range checks. Data was then reformatted following the Standard Data Transfer Protocol (SDTP) and submitted to the Information Management Officer (IMO) in comma- delimited, ASCII format. Standardized data files were submitted to the IMO by diskette, e-mail, or FTP. The IMO then initiated a series of error checks to ensure the data: 1) were within specified ranges appropriate to each parameter measured, 2) contained all required fields, 3) had encoded valid values from constrained look-up lists where specified, and 4) were in the correct format (text in text fields, values in numeric fields, etc.). After all data were submitted, error checked, and corrected, the IMO certified that the file was consistent with the SDTP format requirements and complete. The IMO then notified the chairperson of the Technical Committee responsible for the data that it was ready for technical review. The IMO distributed the data to the chairperson as a comma-delimited ASCII file in the SDTP format. The Technical Committee Chair (TCC) and the Technical Committee reviewed the data with respect to scientific content. This review involved plotting of data and examining interrelationships among individual parameter responses and addressed more extensive data quality issues than can be accomplished by range checking alone. All corrections to the data were made by the IMO. Prior to making any changes, the IMO documented the changes and received (written or electronic) concurrence from the organization that originated the data. The IMO only make changes in the centralized data base; originating organizations were responsible for making corresponding changes in their own internal data storage systems. All changes to the data were documented in a computerized file available to all data users.
