Preliminary Geochemical Studies of Pollutant and Natural Organic Compounds in Sediments from Sonoma Baylands - A Wetland Restoration Project in San Francisco Bay, California

  • Petaluma River dredge spoils contribute only trace levels of contaminants to the wetland site.
  • The surrounding established wetlands may contain higher levels of contaminants than the pilot unit, and therefore should be monitored.
  • Sterols and fatty acids show the most promise for following the changes in sediment geochemistry as the wetland develops.
