This paper represents 1 of 6 papers in the special series “Passive Sampling Methods for Contaminated Sediments,” which was generated from the SETAC Technical Workshop “Guidance on Passive Sampling Methods to Improve Management of Contaminated Sediments,” held November 2012 in Costa Mesa, California, USA. Recent advances in passive sampling methods (PSMs) offer an improvement in risk-based decision making, since bioavailability of sediment contaminants can be directly quantified. Forty-five experts, representing PSM developers, users, and decision makers from academia, government, and industry, convened to review the state of science to gain consensus on PSM applications in assessing and supporting management actions on contaminated sediments.

Figure S1. A typical porewater peeper design (modified from Tessier et al. (1994)). Other styles of peepers are illustrated in Davison et al. (2000).
Figure S2. Illustration of DGT operation (modified from Zhang and Davison (1995)). C is the concentration of the external waters. Δg is the thickness of the diffusive layer path (including the membrane).
Figure S3. Configuration of the DGT device use for sediment deployments (modified from Harper et al. (1999)). This device is also used for unconstrained DET deployments (without inclusion of a binding gel).
