Hydrophobic Organic Contaminants in Lake Michigan Water

The goal of this project is to analyze Lake Michigan water and air   for nine contaminant classes of interest to GLNPO.    The primary purpose of this research is to produce a coherent  data set on hydrophobic organic contaminants in Lake Michigan waters   consistent with measurements currently being made in the air and   fish of the Great Lakes. For some of the compounds (PBDEs and   PFOS/PFOA) this data will represent the first such measurements of   the water column of the Great Lakes, providing baseline information   on water concentrations of these emerging contaminants.    (toxic organic); (toxic organics); (chemicals of concern); (chemical   of concern); (hydrophobic organic contaminant); (hydrophobic organic   contaminants); (hydrophobic organic compounds); (hydrophobic organic   compound); (HOC); (HOC's); (HOCs); (Lake Michigan); (persistent   organic chemicals); (persistent organic chemical); (POPs); (POP's);   (POP); (PBDE); (PBDE's); (PBDEs); (polybrominated diphenyl ether);   (polybrominated diphenyl ethers); (PFO); (PFO's); (PFOs);   (perfluorooctane sulfonate); (perfluorooctane sulfonates); (PFOA);   (PFOA's); (PFOAs); (perfluorooctanoic acid); (perfluorooctanoic   acids); (flame retardant); (flame retardants); (fluorinated   surfactant); (fluorinated surfactants); (perfluorocarbons);   (perfluorocarbon); (PFC's); (PFCs); (PFC); (organofluorides);   (organofluoride); (chemicals of emerging concern); (chemical of   emerging concern)
