PCB138

PCB-138, measured on the sediment fraction smaller than 63 mu, in mu g/kg dry matter; BUT SEE NOTE BELOW

yf

year; as factor

Note

A note of caution: The PCB-138 data are provided only to be able to re-run the analysis done in Pebesma and Duin (2004; see references below). If you want to use these data for comparison with PCB measurements elsewhere, or if you want to compare them to regulation standards, or want to use these data for any other purpose, you should first contact mailto:basisinfodesk@rikz.rws.minvenw.nl. The reason for this is that several normalisations were carried out that are not reported here, nor in the paper below.
