Molecular and Stable Carbon Isotopic Characterisation of PAH Contaminant at Mc Murdo Station, Anatrctica
Entry ID: ECA025

Abstract: In this study were analyzed samples from McMurdo Station for PAH molecular and stable carbon isotopic compositions to discern the origins of contaminants in the area. Total PAH concentrations ranged from 664 ng g-1 to 74,267 ng g-1 dry wt for soil samples Elevated PAH contamination on land was found in areas where fuels were stored and in areas of parking and heavy traffic in central McMurdo ...
