SETAC Pellston Workshop on passive samplers hosted by SCCWRP

January 04, 2013

SCCWRP hosted a workshop November 7-9 in conjunction with the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). The event invited top experts from around the world to develop guidance on obtaining bioavailability measurements for management of contaminated sediments using passive sampling devices (PSDs). The outcomes will be documented in a series of journal manuscripts. Pellston Workshops have been held regularly since 1977 to evaluate current and prospective environmental issues and produce comprehensive, state-of-the-science reviews for use by environmental scientists, engineers, regulators, and managers. For more information on the workshop, please contact Dr. Keith Maruya.
