Part I (Snyder et al.: , 1999a) of this series introduced SCRAM, a chemical scoring and ranking system for contaminants of the North American Great Lakes. Here, in Part II, scoring of the bioaccumulation potential and persistence of chemicals is discussed, including acceptable types of data, specific scoring instructions, and the basis for criteria and(More)
In Part I of this series (Snyder: et al., 1999a), the Chemical Scoring and Ranking Assessment Model (SCRAM) was introduced. This system produces scores for chemicals based on their bioaccumulation potential, environmental persistence, and toxicity. In Part II, scoring of the potential for a chemical to persist in the environment and bioaccumulate was(More)
The Chemical Scoring and Ranking Assessment Model (SCRAM) has been described in Parts I-III of this series (Snyder et al.: , 1999a; 1999b; 1999c). SCRAM is a chemical scoring and ranking (CSR) system that scores chemicals on the basis of bioaccumulation potential, environmental persistence, and toxicity.
