Ho, K T. AND R M. Burgess. CASE STUDY 6.26: UNSUCCESSFUL TOXICITY IDENTIFICATION AND EVALUATIONS MANIPULATIONS: SEAWATER BUFFERS AND STERILIZATION METHODS. Chapter 6, T Norberg King, L Ausley, DT Burton, WL Goodfellow, J Miller, WT Waller (ed.), Toxicity Reduction and Toxicity Identification Evaluations for Effluents, Ambient Waters, and Other Aqueous Media: Proceedings of the Workshop on Toxicity Identification Evaluations: What Works, What Doesn't, and Development for Effluents, Ambient Waters, and Other Aqueous Media, June 23-28, 2001, Pesacola, FL.

This paper summarizes several unsuccessful attempts to develop Toxicity Identification and Evaluation (TIE) manipulations for aqueous samples during the first 5 years of our research. The first part of the paper explores irradiation as a sterilization technique to discern if sample toxicity was due to a pathogen. The second part of the paper summarizes our attempts to use buffers to maintain seawater pH at 7 and 9 for use in the graduated pH method.
