Molecular and stable carbon isotopic characterzation of PAH contaminants at Mc Murdoc station, Antarctica
Entry ID: ECA006

Abstract: Some studies were carried out next to McMurdo Station (the largest scientific base in Antarctica). The more interesting area is Winter Quarters Bay, in consideration of its contamination problems. The concentration and the stable carbon isotopic composition of PAHs at McMurdo Station were determined in samples collected from land and from the subtidal Area; PAHs in the study areas were ...
