Chronology of PBDE Air Deposition in the Great Lakes from Sedimentary Records

This project will investigate the history of air deposition of   polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in the Great Lakes by   retrieving sedimentary records. The project falls into the EPA's  priority area of "air deposition and source characterization   monitoring".     Sampling locations in the Great Lakes will be selected from the pre-  established stations. Three or four points in Lake Michigan and one   or two in each of the other lakes will be sampled. A few cores will   be collected at locations near the sampling points where air   concentrations were previously measured.    (bottom sediment); (PBDE); (PBDE's); (toxic organic); (toxic   organics); (polybrominated diphenyl ethers); (polybrominated   diphenyl ether); (POPs); (POP); (POP's); (persistent organic   pollutants); (persistent organic pollutant); (organobromide);   (organobromides); (flame retardants); (flame retardant); (chemicals   of concern); (chemical of concern); (chemicals of emerging concern);   (chemical of emerging concern)
