Bight ’13 CIA element publishes integrated summary reports
The integrated findings of the Contaminant Impact Assessment (CIA) element of Bight ’13 have been published in a final assessment report and an accompanying, 12-page executive summary intended for a management audience.
The Bight ’13 Contaminant Impact Assessment Planning Committee, which published the summary documents in March with facilitation by SCCWRP, synthesized the findings of five detailed assessment reports that chronicle the multiple scientific approaches taken to assess how sediment contamination has impacted marine ecosystems across 1,539 square miles of Southern California’s coastal waters.
The five assessment reports that were synthesized are Sediment Chemistry, Sediment Toxicity, Benthic Infauna, Demersal Fishes and Megabenthic Invertebrates, and Contaminant Bioaccumulation.
