Concentrations of twenty-five PCBs, fifteen organochiorine pesticides and
mercury were determined in recreational fish from the Willamette River, Oregon
during the summer of 2000. Thirty-six fish samples of three fish species including
black crappie, smalimouth bass and con-rn-ion carp were analyzed. The data reported
here provides new information and recent...
The seasonal distribution of bioavailable organochiorine contaminants in surface
water and the potential environmental factors influencing their bioavailability were
evaluated. The study was carried at the lower Willamette River at Portland Harbor, Oregon
where surface water runoff varied according to season. Bioavailable water concentrations of
DDTs and PCBs were determined...
An investigation of the fishes of the Willamette River and three of its larger tributaries was made during July, August, September, and November of 1951, to ascertain the possibility of using them as bio-indices of pollution. Thirteen stations were established on the Willamette River and tributaries. These stations were selected...
In this study the impact of episodic events on levels of bioavailable trace metals Zn,
Cu, Cr, Cd, Pb, and As (III) were determined for the lower Willamette River in Oregon.
In addition, a comparison among three alternative methods for estuary sampling was
conducted. Potential adverse human health risk associated...
