Summary

This is a collection of data on the contamination of water, fish, and sediments in Biscayne National Park and in canals that discharge into the national park. The water data are estimations of their concentrations in water based on sampling with passive water samplers (semi-permeable membrane devices and polar organic chemical integrative samplers). Also in this data set are estrogen equivalencies for the chemical mixtures in the polar organic chemical integrative samplers.
