Abstract : The overall purpose of the RMA supplemental field study is to resolve the biomagnification factor (BMF) dispute issue that was raised by the EPA upon its review of the August 1993 draft final integrated endangerement assessment/risk characterization (IEA/RC) report. The program involves two phases. Phase I will involve collecting and analyzing biota tissue samples from the RMA 'area of dispute' (AOD), a specific area over which the ecological risk characterization in the August 1993 draft final IEA/RC is contested. If Phase I indicates that unacceptable risks to biota are likely, then the supplemental study may proceed with phase II to collect additional tissue and soil data to estimate BMFS for selected species.
