Sediment box cores were collected from Lake Erie and Hamilton Harbour (Lake Ontario, Canada) to assess transport of sediment contaminants by gas ebullition. Sediment pore water was extracted by centrifugation. Gas (80% CH4/20% N2)/pore water partition coefficients for 14C-labeled lindane were measured with a wetted-wall column apparatus. Gas/water partition coefficients were found to be independent of dissolved organic carbon concentration. Therefore, Henry's law constants (air/water partition… CONTINUE READING
