Goals of the EERP include better understanding the physical and chemical behavior and fate of EDCs in estuarine systems, and predicting likely endocrine compound exposure scenarios for coastal estuarine organisms. EERP objectives include establishing field sites and conducting long-term field studies in estuaries impacted by endocrine disruptor compounds and in non-impacted (control) coastal estuaries; conducting detailed laboratory-based studies of the physical-chemical behavior of endocrine disruptors in estuarine sediment-water systems; and developing methods for predicting the fate of endocrine disruptors from their introduction into estuarine systems to their sequestration or removal from these systems.
