Sediment core from lake for PAH analysis

Sediment cores from lakes and reservoirs can be used to reconstruct contaminant histories in watersheds. Sediment-core analyses indicate that concentrations of PAHs in many U.S. urban lakes are increasing, and multiple lines of evidence indicate that the source of the PAHs in coal-tar-based pavement sealants.

Pouring dust from sealcoated pavement into sample jar

Dust was collected from sealcoated pavements across the U.S. Concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in dust from sealed pavement in the East, where coal-tar-based products are used, was about 1,000 times higher than in dust from sealed pavement in the  West, where asphalt-based products are used.
