The objective of this program was to determine the effect of sediments on aqueous solutions of selected United States Air Force (USAF} hydrocarbon fuels. Effects of sediment type, organic carbon content, pH, temperature and salinity on interaction of dissolved hydrocarbons with sediment were studied. The results of this work can be used to estimate the role of sediment hydrocarbon interaction terms in fate models of aqueous systems, such as the Environmental Protection Agency "EXAMS" model.
