On Translocation of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin: Time Dependent Analysis at the Times Beach Experimental Site

Abstract

The rate of migration and loss of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) in contaminated soil has been studied under natural conditions in experimental plots at the Dioxin Research Facility, Times Beach, Missouri. The TCDD concentration profiles of sample cores taken at Times Beach in 1988 are virtually the same as those in cores taken in 1984. The data confirm our earlier work with soil columns exposed to simulated environmental conditions in the laboratory, and lead us to conclude that little movement and essentially no loss of TCDD has occurred in the experimental plots in the four years since the Dioxin Research Facility was established.
