Abstract:
The presence of contaminants in estuaries has been identified in both the scientific and popular press as a major problem contributing to degraded ecological resources and restricted harvest of fish and shell fish resources due to human health concerns. Reducing contaminant inputs and concentrations , therefore, is often a major focus of regulatory programs for estuaries. Contaminants include both inorganic (primarily metals) and organic forms originating from many sources, including atmospheric depostion, freshwater inputs, land runoff and point sources. These sources are poorly characterized , except in the most well-studied estuaries. Most contaminants that are potentially toxic to indigenous biological resources tend to bind to particles , which ultimaltely are deposited at he bottom of estuaries. This binding changes the form of contaminants and removes them from the water column; consequently, contaminants accumulate in estuarine sediments. Sediment contaminant concentrations were measured to aid in interpretation of the spatial patterns observed in the condition of biolgical resources in the estuaries of the West Coast. EMAP monitoring efforts have focused on sediment contaminants rather than measurement of water column contaminants because concentrations of contaminants in sediments are less variable and the sediment integrates contaminant inputs to estuartis over time (i.e. months and years). Metals in the sediment are derived from anthropogenic sources or from natural geochemical processes of weathering and erosion of the earth's crust. The difficulty arises in identifying which portion of the total metal content of the sediment was due to natural processes and which was due to human activities. Several methods can be used to determine whether measured metal concentrations in estuarine sediments represent anthropogenically-enriched or natural conditions.
Purpose:
The purpose of this table is to contain all of the sediment grain size data expressed in percent fines for all the collected sediment samples.
Supplemental_Information:
OVERVIEW: In 1999 the US EPA contracted the states of Washington, Oregon, and California to conduct a West Coast Estuary survey. There were 210 stations in the sample design, 18 of which were not able to be sampled for a total of 192 successful measurements. DATA TYPES: Grabs, Trawls, and Water Quality casts were conducted at each of the stations to yield Benthic infauna, Sediment Toxicity, Sediment Chemistry, Trawl Fish, Macro Invertebrate, Debris, water column characterization at one meter increments from surface to bottom, and sediment grain size data. These data types can be aggregated using the StationID variable in each table. This data is actually stored in the chemistry table and is coded as Percent Fines. Missing numerical values have been coded as -99 Missing text values have been coded as NR Missing date values have been coded as 01/Jan/1999 Missing time values have been coded as 23:00
