Pearson correlation coefficients (r) between benthic indices and measures of pollution at Los Angeles County Stations 6C and 0C from 1972 to 1995.
<p>Organic nitrogen is a measure of eutrophication and the mean ERM <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0040875#pone.0040875-Long1" target="_blank"></a> quotient is a measure of sediment contamination. For each of eight measured metals, the ERM quotient measures the ratio of the observed concentration to the value at which biological effects are likely, and the mean ERM quotient for the eight metals is an integrated measure of the likelihood of contaminant effects.</p
