Three indicators, root mean square errors 2 ), were derived (RMSE), error sum of squares (SSE), and coefficients of determination (r from the four parametric approaches, while two indicators, RMSE and SSE, were obtained from the nonparametric approaches. These indicators were used to compare outputs and check the adequacy of the candidate approaches. The model with 42 Y. Liu et al. 006 The values are expressed as μg/L. Model parameters for parametric estimations are also presented SSE error sum of squares, RMSE root mean square error Setting Water Quality Criteria in China: Approaches for Developing Species… 43 the least RMSE and SSE and greatestr2 was deemed to produce the most ­appropriate SSDs and HC5 values.

This is primarily because Hg0 captured by virgin ACs follows a physisorption mechanism (Krishnan et al. 1994), whereas that captured by sulfur-impregnated ACs occurred by a combination of physisorption of Hg0 on carbon texture and chemical reactions between Hg0 and impregnated sulfur, with subsequent formation of HgS (the latter being the dominant mechanism) (Steijns et al.

Cr, Hg, Ni, Pb, and Zn). In contrast, the HC5 values for As and Cu, published by the USEPA, were out of the range of those derived by using different approaches in this study. 39μg/L, which was less than the value published by the USEPA. Notwithstanding, the difference between HC5 values derived in this study for China and those published by the USEPA was reasonable, probably for two reasons. First, the freshwater ecosystems for the two countries are located on different continents. For instance, the Great Lakes in the United States are quite different from freshwater aquatic systems present in China, featuring different geographical conditions and different populations of aquatic life (Rausina et al.
