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 document where all trawls and beach seines were taken.
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. The locations reported in this table are the actual sites visited at sampling time. 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

Methodology_Type: Field
Methodology_Description:
Field crews will use differential Global Position Satellite (GPS) navigation systems to locate the CM sampling stations. Coordinates of latitude and longitude for the previously selected random sampling stations will be issued to the field crews along with their sampling packages; the coordinates will be expressed in units to the nearest 0.01 minute. The vessel operator should review navigation plans for a site at least a day prior to the scheduled sampling. Before leaving the dock, the station position will be entered into the GPS system and the operator will safely navigate to the area. As the vessel closes in on the general location, the operator will decrease speed and allow the GPS to guide the vessel onto the location and then weigh anchor. After anchoring, the sampling vessel should come to rest within 0.02 nautical miles (nm) of the intended location; the actual coordinates of the anchorage will be recorded on the Station Information Data Sheet. While 0.02 nm is the target criteria for accuracy in siting the station, the crew will be granted a buffer zone of up to 0.05 nm from the intended position in the event that there are mitigating circumstances to justify exercising that allowance (e.g., currents, obstacles, boat traffic, etc). This buffer zone will be used only for those situations when locating within the 0.02-nm goal is not feasible. In cases where the vessel cannot navigate to within 0.05 nm of the intended site (e.g., the site is actually landlocked or the depth too shallow), the crew will record the station as unsamplable and referred the situation to the senior field coordinator. The field coordinator who should review the circumstances and make the final decision to sample or not. The occurrence of situations like that cropping up unexpectedly in the field would be less likely if suspect areas were reconnoitered prior to the monitoring window. Fish trawls will be conducted at each site, where possible, to collect fish/shellfish for community structure and abundance estimates, target species for contaminant analyses, and specimens for histopathological examination. Trawls will be conducted by using a 16-ft otter trawl and the duration of the trawl will be for 102 minutes; replicate (two) trawls will be performed. Although not required, it is strongly suggested that the vessel used for trawling be equipped with a boom or A-frame assembly and a powered winch. In situations where the use of nominal craft is prohibited (e.g., narrow stream or shallow conditions), it is possible to manually deploy and retrieve a small trawl, but it is not advised as routine procedure. Trawling should be the last field activity that the crew performs while onsite because of their disturbance to conditions at the site. In open water, the trawl should be conducted in a straight line with the site location near center. The replicate trawl can be taken along the same general line by going in the opposite direction; however, tides and seas conditions may dictate the direction of the trawl. Timing of the trawl begins after the length of towline has been payed out and the net begins its plow. The speed over bottom should be approximately 3-4 knots. When possible, conduct the trawl for the entire 10-minute period, after which the boat will be placed in neutral and the trawl net retrieved and brought aboard. Contents of the bag will be emptied into an appropriately sized trough or livebox to await sorting, identifying, measuring, and sub-sampling. Every effort will be made to return any rare or endangered species back to the water before they suffer undue stress.
