Department of Earth Sciences, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90089 ABSTRACT Sediments of San Diego Bay (SDB) are known to contain elevated levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), but no studies have been directed toward assessing water column contamination. Measurements of PCB concentrations in the water column of SDB were taken with an in situ sampling system. Except for one sample collected near the bay mouth, all samples contained higher PCB concentrations than the 30… CONTINUE READING
