Air-Water Gas Exchange of Hexachlorocycloheane Enamtiomers in the South Atlantic Ocean and Antarctica
Entry ID: ECA012

Abstract: The spatial distribution of α-HCH and the net direction of air/water gas exchange were determined between November 1997 and February 1998. Air and water samples were collected between South Atlantic Ocean (South Africa) and Antarctica SANAE Base (70°S, 3°E). The α-HCH concentrations in air and surface water were much lower than in Arctic regions, consistent with the historically lower usage of ... View entire text
