Sediment toxicity data from the NOAA National Status and Trends Program, March 1991 to July 1996 (NCEI Accession 9800146)

browse graphicPreview graphic
As part of its bioeffects assessment program. NOAA has begun a series of surveys of the toxicity and other biological effects of toxicants in selected bays and estuaries of the U.S. (Wolfe et al., 1993). In these surveys, adverse biological effects (bioeffects) are measured in sediments with laboratory toxicity tests and in bivalve molluscs and demersal fishes with selected biomarkers. The The data are used to identify the significance of chemical contamination, spatial patterns in measures of effects, the severity of magnitude of effects, and the relationships between measures of effects and the concentrations of toxicants. In the surveys of sediment quality, toxicity tests are performed as measures of biological effects. The objectives of the sediment quality surveys are to determine: (1) the spatial patterns and extent of toxicity, (2) the severity or degree of toxcitiy, and (3) the relationships between toxicity and potentially toxic substances in the sediments.

Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information accurately represents all available information from the legacy database at the time that this description was created. However, proper attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis.
