Indication of Geographic Variations of Organochlorine Concentrations in the Blubber of Antarctic Weddell Seals
Entry ID: ECA046

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset highlights that samples of Weddell seals blubber from King George Island (the region with the mildest climate in the Antarctic) in 1994 showed the lowest DDT (11 to19 ng/g)and PCB (1 to 2.5 ng/g) concentrations so far detected in comparable marine mammals from all over the world and one order of magnitude lower than in samples of the same species from other sites in Antarctica ...
