Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in Antarctic seawater, Ross Sea
Entry ID: ECA001

Abstract: Few investigations have been carried out to determine the POP content of seawater. One recent investigation was carried out to study the vertical distribution of PCbs and PAHs in the costal area of the Ross Sea during the Antarctic summer (from November to February). PCB and PAHs showed a concentration range in the water column of 30-120 pg l-1 and 150-400 pg l-1, respectively, and these values ... View entire text
