Organic matter in samples of rain and snow from Sweden, Poland, Germany and the Republic of Ireland was fractionated by employing a series of filtration, purging, evaporation and extraction steps. Determinations of the group parameter AOX (adsorbable organic halogens) in aqueous phases and EOX (extractable organic halogens) in organic phases showed that halogenated organic matter present in bulk precipitation is composed of several different groups of compounds. The largest amounts of… CONTINUE READING
