Summary: Passive sampling using polydimethylsiloxane coated fibers was used to monitor PAH migration in thin-layer sand caps with bioactivity in the lab. The method for monitoring allowed for freely dissolved pore water concentrations at 1 cm increments in the cap. Measurements were compared to models where analytical solutions were provided. The passive sampling measurements were correlated with bioaccumulation in the worm, Ilyodrilus templetoni.
