Organophosphorus flame retardants and plasticizers in airborne particles over the Northern Pacific and Indian Ocean toward the Polar Regions: evidence for global occurrence.
TLDR
This paper shows the first occurrence of OPs over theglobal oceans proving that they undergo long-range atmospheric transport over the global oceans toward the Arctic and Antarctica.
Baseline values for metals in soils on Fildes Peninsula, King George Island, Antarctica: the extent of anthropogenic pollution
TLDR
Enrichment factor analysis and the geo-accumulation index method were applied in order to determine the extent of anthropogenic contamination, and both show that Pb, Cd, and Hg have been significantly increased by human activities.
Distribution and air-sea exchange of current-use pesticides (CUPs) from East Asia to the high Arctic Ocean.
TLDR
Air-sea gas exchange of chlorpyrifos varied from net volatilizaiton in East Asia to equilibrium or net deposition in the North Pacific and the Arctic, and concentrations of chlorothalonil and dacthal were more abundant in Chukchi Sea and in EastAsia.
Levels and distribution of trace metals in surface sediments from Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, Norwegian Arctic
TLDR
The enrichment factor analysis indicated that Hg showed some extent of anthropogenic pollution, while Pb, Zn and Cd showed limited anthropogenic contamination in the study areas.
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers vs alternate brominated flame retardants and Dechloranes from East Asia to the Arctic.
TLDR
The air-seawater exchange indicates strong deposition, especially of alternate BFRs, as well as dry particle-bound deposition of BDE-209 into the ocean, suggesting the Asian continent as source of these compounds in the marine environment.
Occurrence of perfluoroalkyl compounds in surface waters from the North Pacific to the Arctic Ocean.
TLDR
The changing in the pattern and concentrations in Pacific Ocean indicate that the PFCs in surface water were influenced by sources from the East-Asian and North American coast, and dilution effect during their transport to the Arctic.
Deposition of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the North Pacific and the Arctic
Eighteen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were simultaneously measured in surface seawater and boundary layer air from the North Pacific toward the Arctic Ocean during the Fourth Chinese
