Significant dioxins accumulations in Japanese forests and paddy fields have been observed, and surface soil runoff caused by rainfall and irrigation (i.e., soil puddling in paddy fields) results in dioxins input into the aquatic environment. An extensive investigation into the origins and transport of aquatic dioxins in the Yasu watershed, Japan was(More)
Lack of understanding of dioxins mass loading into the aquatic environment motivated the quantitative investigation of dioxins runoff from paddy fields during one entire irrigation period in the Minakuchi region, Japan. Combination use of the chemically activated luciferase gene expression (CALUX) bioassay together with high resolution gas chromatography(More)
