PCBs and PAHs in marine sediment, of Admiralty Bay
Entry ID: ECA003

Abstract: This project focused on the PCBs in sediments of Admiral Bay on King George Island collected in the 1993/1994 austral summer. The individual concentrations of PCB congeners ranged from < 0.05 to 0.57 ng g-1 dry weight and the levels of total PCBs ranged from 2.03 to 5.91 ng g-1 dry weight. These levels are comparable to those found in Antarctic sediments from pristine regions
