PASSIVE SAMPLING FOR CONTAMINATED SEDIMENT SITES
Naval Facilities Engineering Command, ESTS N39430-16-D-1802, 8 pp, 2018

The most commonly used types of passive samplers-polyethylene devices, polyoxymethylene, polydimethylsiloxane-coated solid-phase microextraction, polar organic chemical integrative samplers, and diffusive gradient in thin film (DGT®)-are described and accompanied by preparation and deployment considerations. Key data analysis steps are highlighted for extraction and analysis and the interpretation of results related to the calculation of water concentrations, mass transfer models, QA/QC, and bioaccumulation prediction. https://www.navfac.navy.mil/content/dam/navfac/Specialty%20Centers/Engineering%20and%20Expeditionary%20Warfare%20Center/Environmental/Restoration/er_pdfs/p/navfacexwc-ev-fs-passivesampling-201809.pdf
