Description
Table 1. Certified and measured values of chlorobiphenyl congeners in cod-liver oil (CRM349) of cyclic chlorinated pesticides and polyaromatic hydrocarbons in mussel tissue homogenate (IAEA142) and of metals in estuarine sediment (CRM277) and mussel tissue homogenate (CRM278) Table 2. Depth (m), total organic carbon and nitrogen (as a percentage of wet weight) and their ratios, and the texture of the surface layer (upper 10 mm) of sediments from different areas of the Chagos Archipelago Table 3, Concentrations (ng g-1 extractable lipid) of polychlorinated biphenyl congeners in epibenthic macro- invertebrates, from different areas of the Chagos Archipelago; the number of individuals (N) in a sample, the total amount of lipid extracted (mg) and the percentage lipid extracted are listed. Table 4. Concentrations (ng g-1 lipid) of cyclic chlorinated pesticides in epibenthic macro-invertebrates from different areas of the Chagos Archipelago; the number of individuals (N) in a sample, the total amount of lipid extracted (mg) and the percentage lipid are summarised. Table 5. Concentration (ng g-1 lipid) of polyaromatic hydrocarbons in epibenthic macro-invertebrates from different areas of the Chagos Archipelago; For the number of individuals (N) in a sample, the total amount of lipid (mg) and the percentage lipid compare with the samples in Table 4 in which all pesticides were determined. Table 6. Concentration (in μg g-1 dry weight) of heavy metals in bulk surface sediments from different areas of the Chagos Archipelago. Table 7. Concentrations (in μg g-1 dry weight) of heavy metals in epibenthic macro-invertebrates from different areas of the Chagos Archipelago; N is the number of individuals in a sample.
