Version of Record online: 6 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ieam.1507

Key Points

  • Specific guidance is provided for the use of passive sampling methods for measuring freely dissolved concentrations in contaminated sediment site assessments.
  • Guidelines are provided for proper calibration and validation of passive sampling methods including use of provisional values for polymer-water partition coefficients.
  • Determination of equilibrium status and confirmation of non-depletive measurement conditions are defined.
  • Further development is needed for the use of non-equilibrium passive sampling methods in the field and the validation of performance reference compound use in static sediment environments.
