Questions:

  • What are the long-term (1977-1997) trends of metals in the sediments and clams near the outfall of the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant (PARWQP)?
  • Can point-source inputs be distinguished from non-point-source contributions?
  • Does metal exposure affect the reproductive capability in South Bay clams?

These pages were created from the poster seen below.
