Levels of CDDs, CDFs, PCBs and Hg in Rural Soils of US
The purpose of this study is to develop a protocol for soil sample collection, to collect samples from a number of background sites and to make initial estimates of background levels of CDD's, CDF's, PCB's and Hg in soils. This pilot survey will focus on characterizing dioxin soil levels in background areas as represented by the 31 NDAMN air sampling stations. These stations are located in rural/remote areas and represent many of the important agricultural areas of the US.
