Dataset for airborne polychlorinated biphenyl congener concentrations using PUF-PAS from Chicago, Il, 2011-2013


We report the levels of airborne PCB concentrations from 180 samples from 18 locations, from 2011 to 2013 in the metropolitan Chicago area, Il, USA. Measurements were obtained using polyurethane foam passive air samplers (PUF-PAS), deployed for ~45 days. Effective volumes for individual PCB congeners were calculated from a previously published model and included here. Further, individual PCB congener masses from 24 laboratory blank PUFs are included, as well as the masses of the individual PCB congeners measured in the PUF-PAS.
