This document summarizes the methods used to delineate TPH into equivalent carbon number fractions based on fate and transport considerations. Once the fractions were defined, fraction-specific values of relevant physical-chemical properties were calculated based on correlations to boiling point. The analytical method, fate and transport considerations and toxicity criteria (see vol. 4) are the technical elements which fit into a risk-based framework for determining human Heath Based Criteria at petroleum hydrocarbon contaminated sites.
