Abstract

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) concentrations were measured in sediments and porewaters isolated from three cores from Boston Harbor, MA. Measured porewater PAH concentrations were significantly lower than the concentrations predicted by two- and three-phase equilibrium partitioning models. We hypothesize that only a fraction of the measured sediment PAH concentrations was available to partition rapidly into sediment porewaters. ?? 1995 American Chemical Society.
