Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) occur in the sediment environment as complex mixtures originating from releases of non-point and point sources. A critical component of cost allocation at multi-party sites is being able to differentiate the contribution of these sources.
PAH source identification methods have been developed to support cost allocation models using a variety of techniques ranging from the examination of simple visual profiles to complex multivariate statistical approaches.
Join Us on October 29 at Noon, as JR Flanders of EHS Support takes a closer look at:
- Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) source identification tools and analyses
- Common misuse of PAH source identification techniques and the potential implications of misuse
- Strengths and limitations of the approaches in supporting a cost allocation position
