PAH Source Identification Methods

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.

During this informative session JR Flanders will take 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
