source_conc: PAH source concentrations

Description Usage Format Examples

Description

A table of various PAH sources and the concentration of PAHs measured in each source. Most source PAH concentrations are the EPA 16 priority compounds, but some concentrations are a sum of more than 16 compounds. These can be used to rule out various sources by comparing to sample concentrations; e.g., if source concentrations are less than sample concentrations, that source by definition cannot be the primary source of contamination. These concentrations have been extracted from a number of published papers.
