In 2001, the National Resource Council (NRC), in a report titled A Risk-Management Strategy for PCBContaminated Sediments, identified the need for a capability to collect undisturbed surface sediments. Surface sediments are an important source for most exposure of fish to polychlorinated biphenyls via direct uptake from water in contact with sediments. These sediments also are an important source of exposure for fish that feed on prey contaminated by interactions with the sediment and interstitial and overlying water. Thus, contaminant concentrations in surface layer sediment have become a focus of monitoring and assessments. The objective of this project was to develop a sediment sampler that is capable of collecting the upper 15 centimeters (cm) (6 inches) of undisturbed surface sediment. Furthermore, the sediments must be maintained undisturbed inside of the sampling system when the sampler is retrieved so that layers as fine as 1 cm can be removed.
