Abstract:
We report the levels of airborne PCB concentrations at 18 locations for three consecutive periods, from July to November of 2015, and one extra period from July to August of 2016 in New Bedford, Fairhaven, Dartmouth, and Acushnet, MA, USA. Measurements were obtained using polyurethane foam passive air samplers (PUF-PAS), deployed for ~40 days. Effective volumes for individual PCB congeners were calculated from a previously published model and included here. Further, the limit of detection from the PUF for individual PCB congeners are included, together with the masses of the PCB congeners measured in the PUF.
