February 27, 2017

Data release including concentrations of bioactive organic contaminants in water and sediment and biodegradation rates of select model contaminants in sediment from Congaree National Park during 2013-15. Chemical analyses for targeted organic analytes include, human-use pharmaceuticals, degradates and metabolites and hormones and organic wastewater indicator compounds. Samples were collected between May 2013 and May 2015. Data release is associated with journal article:
