Characteristics and risk evaluation of organchlorine pesticides (OCPs) in the sediments of four lakes located in the Lake Lianhuan area were conducted to observe the risks on ecological system and identify the sources of pollutants. Measurement of eleven OCPs, four hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomers (α-HCH, β-HCH, γ-HCH, δ-HCH), three dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) homologues (p,p'-DDT, p,p'-DDD, p,p'-DDE), and four cyclodienes (Aldrin, Dieldrin, Endrin and Heptachlor), indicated that… CONTINUE READING
