Abstract

In support of marine monitoring measurement programs, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducts yearly interlaboratory comparison exercises to provide one mechanism for participating laboratories/monitoring programs to evaluate the quality and comparability of their performance in measuring selected organic contaminants in environmental samples. In this report, results of the 2002 exercises of the NIST Intercomparison Exercise Program for Organic Contaminants in the Marine Environment are described in which selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners, and chlorinated pesticides were determined in Marine Sediment XI exercise material, and selected PCB congeners and chlorinated pesticides were determined in Fish Homogenate V exercise material. The analytical methods used by each participating laboratory in this performance-based program are also summarized.
