Characterization of Benthic Habitats and Contaminant Assessment in Arctic Lagoons and Estuaries

Baseline environmental characterizations of the lagoons and estuaries in the northeastern Chukchi and western Beaufort Seas, were conducted using a sediment quality approach based on water quality, sediment chemistry, and benthic invertebrate community structure. Resident fish body burdens were also ...
