Model of Biota Sediment Accumulation Factor (BSAF) for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

A model of the BSAF is constructed for PAHs using a steady-state representation of a benthic food web of a small creek. Analyses of the data collected by others on sediment, crayfish and sunfish PAH indicate that for the crayfish, the BSAF (kg org C kg lipid−1) range over log Kow is relatively narro...
