R/P-27

The influence of organic matter dynamics on the cycling of toxic organic contaminants in Chesapeake Bay

Principal Investigator:

Joel E. Baker

Start/End Year:

1990 - 1994

Institution:

Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science

Description:

To relate the cycling of organic pollutants in Chesapeake Bay to seasonal changes in organic matter cycling and sediment transport. We will link compound-specific settling velocities, burial rates, resuspension fluxes, and benthic recycling rates to contaminant sorption and particle characteristics.
