The present study focuses on predicting the long term changes in water column concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Boston's Inner Harbor which may result from the sediment dredging scheduled to occur in conjunction with the Navigation Improvement Project. It has been suggested that sediment flux is one of the primary sources of PAH loading to the water column. Three representative PAHs were selected based on their spectrum of molecular weights, including naphthalene… CONTINUE READING
