Summary

This dataset contains concentrations of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) measured in the eggs of brown pelicans nesting near Charleston, SC, USA, as well as movements of brown pelicans tracked with GPS-Platform Terminal transmitters. In total, 36 eggs were measured from three breeding colonies of brown pelicans for the presence of 24 PFAS analytes using LC-MS/MS. Concentrations were then analyzed for differences between colonies based on urban habitat use and distance from Charleston.

Purpose

These data were collected in order to quantify PFAS contamination in the eggs of brown pelicans nesting near Charleston, SC, USA, an area identified as having PFAS concentrations in prior literature. We also wanted to quantify PFAS exposure in pelicans based on urban habitat use.
