Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis of Extractable Organohalogens in the Antarctic Weddell Seal
Entry ID: ECA049

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: In this dataset researchers measured extractable organohalogens PCBs, DDTs and chlordane
compounds (CHLs) in blubber of Weddell seal caught at Syowa Station (69° 00’S, 39° 35’E) from 1980 to 1982 and found that the age-trend accumulation of EOBr (extractable organobromine) and EOI (extractable organoiodine) was similar to man-made organochlorine compounds. Percent compositions of known ... View entire text
