Abstract : This note provides initial information on the development of a computerized data base concerning dioxin and polychlorinated furans in aquatic media including sediments, animals, and bioassay results. The ultimate goal of compiling this data is to provide Corps elements with numerical and descriptive guidance so sediment, tissue, and bioassay results concerning dioxins and polychlorinated furans in the environment can be related to the potential for biological and environmental effects. -BKA
