EDITOR'S NOTE: 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. Log KPEW versus (a) temperature, calculated following Lohmann (2012) for compounds with an excess enthalpy of solution in water of 39 kJ mol-1. The assumed excess enthalpy of solution is the average of 13 compounds (4 PAHs, 6 PCBs, and 3 DDTs), derived from data compiled by Mackay et al. (2006); and (b) salinity, calculated following Lohmann (2012), using log KOW-dependent Setchenow constants, as described by Ni and Yalkowsky (2003).
Figure S2. Amphipod survival in a 28-day sediment toxicity test versus (a) concentration of total PAH in bulk sediment; (b) ESB-based Sum-TU for PAHs in bulk sediment, and (c) Sum-TU for PAHs based on Cfree measurements.
