The Sediment Quality Subcommittee of the Ecological Processes and Effects Committee of the Science Advisory Board (SAB) met June 10-11, 1992 to review EPA's Sediment Criteria Development Methodology and evaluate its progress in addressing the uncertainties associated with the Equilibrium Partitioning (EqP) approach. In this review, the Subcommittee reaffirmed that the EqP approach is scientifically sound. The Subcommittee considered broad sources of uncertainty including laboratory measurements to determine the precision or reproducibility of the EqP and field verification of the values predicted in the laboratory. The Subcommittee found that EPA had substantially reduced the uncertainty associated with laboratory measurements.
