Title: National Status and Trends: Bioeffects Program - Southwest Puerto Rico Chemical Contaminant Assessment Summary
Short Name: PR1_metadata
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2008-05-23
Abstract:

The purpose of the project was to characterize the extent and magnitude of chemical contamination in southwest Puerto Rico, as part of a larger effort to link coral condition with chemical contamination. The study area extended from Guanica Bay west past the town of La Parguera. The Puerto Rico Planning Board has classified the terrestrial and marine environments of the study area as a Zone of Special Planning, and the Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources has designated the marine environment as a Natural Reserve. In May 2005, a reconnaissance mission resulted in the collection of 71 sediment samples that were used to characterize sediments in the study area in terms of total organic carbon (TOC). In August 2005, sediments were collected from 43 sites, randomly selected within the high and low TOC strata, using standard NSandT Program protocols, for contaminant analysis. A broad suite of chemical contaminants were analyzed in the sediment samples including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), chlorinated pesticides including DDT and its metabolites, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), major and trace elements, butyltins, and polybrominated flame retardants (PBDEs). Coral tissues (mustard hill coral, Porites astreoides) were collected at eight sites and were analyzed for PAHs, chlorinated pesticides including DDT and its metabolites, PCBs, major and trace elements, and butyltins. Water samples were analyzed for total nitrogen and total phosphorus. This project provides valuable baseline data on sediment and coral tissue chemical contamination that is georeferenced and posted on the internet through the NOAA's National Status and Trends data portal.

Purpose:

Specific objectives of the study were to: 1) Characterize chemical contamination in sediments and coral tissues; 2) Characterize total nitrogen and phosphorus in water samples; 3) Assess existing information on coral cover (biogeography) and land use; 4) Determine if linkages exist between contaminants and coral health; and 5) Develop a framework that can be applied to other coral reef ecosystems. The dataset objective is to report information about chemical residues in sediment, coral tissues, and in water samples (nutrients only), collected in the study area.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

MEASUREMENT QUALITY OBJECTIVESSite location - Sampling sites were located by GPS with a manufacturer reported position accuracy of better than 3 meters in DGPS mode. Coordinates are expressed in units to the nearest 0.0001 decimal degrees. An acceptable tolerance goal for siting was that the sampling location be established within 0.2nm (+/- 120ft) of the given coordinates. In the event the vessel could not navigate to the site (i.e., too shallow) or the bottom type was not appropriate (i.e., coral reef or rock) then the first alternate site was substituted. In the event the first alternate could not be sampled then the second alternate site was sampled. Organic and Inorganic Contaminants - The measurement quality objectives of the Southwest Puerto Rico Contaminants Study specify accuracy and precision requirements of 30% for organic analytes and 15% for inorganic analytes in sediment samples. Water column measurements - Water column monitoring instrumentation was calibrated based on manufacturer's recommendations (YSI Corporation).ACTUAL MEASUREMENT QUALITY Water column measurements - Fields are arranged as follows: Measurement; Units; Expressed to Nearest; DO; mg/L; 0.1; Salinity; ppt; 0.01; Specific Conductance; mS/cm; 1; Depth; Meters; 0.5; Temperature; C; 0.1; Secchi depth; feet; 1.0;

Completeness Report:

Organic and Inorganic Contaminants - QA procedures include blanks, spiked samples, and standard reference materials with each batch of samples. Any batch failing to meet the specifications presented in the Measurement Quality Objectives would be reanalyzed or rejected.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 455524
Description:

Coral Tissue Collection Mustard hill coral, Porites astreoides, was collected and analyzed from eight sites. Samples were collected from the vessel Aquanauta using a GPS programmed with the station coordinates. The coral samples were taken by NCCOS SCUBA divers in August 2005 using a hammer and an acetone-rinsed punch. The punch produced a coral core with a diameter of 1.2 cm and a similar core length. Approximately 20 cores were taken at each site and placed in a 50ml Teflon centrifuge tube underwater. The tube was then brought to the surface, drained of water and placed immediately in a dewar charged with liquid nitrogen. At the end of the mission, the dewars were shipped to the NOAA Hollings Marine Laboratory in Charleston, South Carolina and the samples were stored at -80 C prior to processing.

Process Step 4

CC ID: 455527
Description:

Sediment Sample Analysis PAHs were analyzed using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry in the selected ion monitoring mode. PCBs were analyzed using gas chromatography/electron capture detection. Organochlorine pesticides were also analyzed using gas chromatography/electron capture detection. Butyltins were quantified using gas chromatography/flame photometry. Silver, cadmium, copper, lead, antimony, and tin were analyzed using inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrometry. Aluminum, arsenic, chromium, iron, manganese, nickel, silicon and zinc were analyzed using inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectrometry. Mercury was analyzed using cold vapor - atomic absorption spectrometry. Selenium was analyzed using atomic fluorescence spectrometry. Total metal was analyzed. Additional information on the protocols used for the analysis of the organic and inorganic contaminants can be found in Kimbrough et al. (2006), and Kimbrough and Lauenstein (2006), respectively.

Process Step 5

CC ID: 455528
Description:

Coral Tissue Processing - The coral tissues were processed using the protocols found in Downs et al. (2005). Briefly, the corals were ground in an acid washed, solvent-rinsed (acetone) mortar and pestle. Liquid nitrogen was added before the grinding commenced to cool the mortar, and during the grinding process to prevent the tissues from thawing, and to keep the coral matrix brittle to facilitate the grinding process. The ground coral was then placed into a precleaned jar, and then frozen. Coral Tissue Analysis - TDI-Brooks International conducted the organic and inorganic analyses for coral tissues. Additional information on the protocols used for the analysis of the organic and inorganic contaminants can be found in Kimbrough et al. (2006), and Kimbrough and Lauenstein (2006), respectively.
