    Petroleum hydrocarbons are important pollutants for sea and marine organisms. Many researches about petroleum effects on aquatic systems regards the immediate and short-term toxic effects. The origin of hydrocarbons are either endogenic, which are synthetised by marine organisms or exogenic, due to oil pollution accumulated by marine organisms. Petroleum hydrocarbons of the types found in the marine environment may be present in true solution, complexed with dissolved organic matter and colloids, as dispersed micelles, adsorbed on the surface of inorganic or organic particles, occluded within particles (e.g., in soot, coal, or tar), associated with oil droplets, and in the tissues of.

    Concentrations of 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured in livers of 81 adult female sea otters collected along the California coast in – Concentrations of P PAHs in livers of sea otters were in the range of – ng/g lipid wt (mean: ng/g, lipid wt). aromatic compound, were identified. Total C2-C4 saturated hydrocarbon yields vary considerably from virtually zero in a Paleogene calcareous ooze from Hole B to nearly nanogram/gram of dry-weight sediment (parts per billion) in a Cretaceous claystone from Hole A.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were investigated in the marine ecosystem of the Daya Bay, South China. The PAH concentrations ranged from to ng/g dry weight in the sediments and from to ng/g wet weight in marine organisms, by: Author(s) Bennett, J. and J. Cubbage: Description: To support ongoing efforts to develop freshwater sediment quality criteria, sediments from Lake Washington, which are contaminated with high concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), were tested against several bioassays.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) have garnered much attention due to their bioaccumulation, carcinogenic properties, and persistence in the environment. Investigation of the spatial distribution, composition, and sources of PAHs in sediments of three recreational marinas in San Diego Bay, California revealed significant differences among.

This is consistent with the putative sources of PAHs in the bay, namely creosote pilings, and a long history of burning wood in the area. The contaminant levels described herein have provided an in situ, broad-spatial-scale, and real-time observation of the potential chemical exposure naturally spawned herring may experience in Port Gamble Bay.

Sampling. Surface sediment samples were collected at 14 stations located at the industrial port area of southern Kaohsiung Harbor in January (Figure 1) with an Ekman Dredge Grab aboard a fishing ately after collection, the samples were scooped into glass bottles, which had been pre-washed with n-hexane and kept in an icebox, and then transported to the Cited by: Duringthe Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) collected surface sediment and fish tissue samples from greater Elliott Bay (Seattle) to fulfill needs of various regulatory and monitoring programs.

PAHs are widely-distributed in the environment, almost ubiquitous, and have been detected in animal and plant tissues, sediments, soils, air, surface water, drinking water, industrial effluents, ambient river water, well water, and groundwater (EPA ).

Man probably has always been exposed to. A total of 58 surface sediment samples were taken in in the outer Jade Bay, southern North Sea, and analysed for grain size distribution, total organic carbon (TOC) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). The latter were positively related to TOC and mud content (Cited by: 2.

Abstract. Concentrations of total aromatic hydrocarbons and extractable organic matter in the water column and sediment were determined in samples collected in the course of the last 20 years from the Salina Cruz Harbor, México, to assess the degree of organic by:   Fate and Effects of Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Marine Organisms and Ecosystems is a collection of papers presented at the international symposium by the same title, held at the Olympic Hotel in Seattle, Washington on NovemberThis book is Book Edition: 1.

Concentrations of total PAHs (28 PAH compounds) ranged from 15 to ng g −1 dry weight. Diagnostic ratios showed that PAHs in the sediments of the Gaoping estuary were predominantly of petroleum origin, whereas sediments from.
