Summary

Management of petroleum-impacted waters by monitored natural attenuation (MNA) requires an understanding of the toxicology of both the original compounds released as well as the transformation products formed during natural breakdown. Here, we report data from a groundwater plume consisting of a mixture of crude oil compounds and transformation products resulting from a crude-oil release in August, 1979 near Bemidji, MN, USA. Water samples were characterized for activation of 52 human nuclear receptor (NR) activities and 50 transcriptional pathways associated with toxic responses. Five replicate analyses were performed for each solution at strengths of 1, 3, and 10 times the sample concentration. Radar plots of the results for each [...]
