A captured episode of γ-hexachlorocyclohexane air pollution in the Toronto area after the Canadian lindane ban

Abstract A Canadian ban on lindane for agricultural use came into effect on December 31, 2004. In the years leading up to this ban, air concentrations of γ–HCH, the active ingredient of lindane,

Record high peaks in PCB concentrations in the Arctic atmosphere due to long-range transport of biomass burning emissions

Soils and forests in the boreal region of the North- ern Hemisphere are recognised as having a large capacity for storing air-borne Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), such as the polychlorinated

Atmospheric deposition of current-use and historic-use pesticides in snow at national parks in the western United States.

Correlation analysis with latitude, temperature, elevation, particulate matter, and two indicators of regional pesticide use reveal that regional current and historic agricultural practices are largely responsible for the distribution of pesticides in the national parks in this study.

Modeling global emissions and residues of pesticides

A major portion of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) is organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), in which carbon and chlorine are combined. During the last decade, a number of researches have been

Gridded usage inventories of chlordane in China

Chlordane (1,2,4,5,6,7,8,8-octachloro-3a,4,7, 7a-tetra-hydro-4,7-methanoindane) is one of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) which has been listed as one of the persistent organic pollutants (POPs) to

Soils and forests in the boreal region of the Northern Hemisphere are recognised as having a large capacity for storing air-borne Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), such as the polychlorinated

Source regions of some persistent organic pollutants measured in the atmosphere at Birkenes, Norway

Abstract. A key feature of POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants) is their potential for long-range atmospheric transport. In order to better understand and predict atmospheric source-receptor

Temporal and spatial trends of organochlorine pesticides in Great Lakes precipitation.

The 28-day volume weighted mean concentrations of several pesticides, including gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane, endosulfan, hexachlorobenzene, chlordane, and DDE, showed significant seasonal trends, indicating that urban areas could be a source for these compounds to precipitation.

Hexachlorocyclohexanes and endosulfans in urban, rural, and high altitude air samples in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia: evidence for trans-Pacific transport.

High-volume air samples collected over the period Aug. 14-30, 2001, in the Lower Fraser Valley, BC, Canada, were used to assess urban/rural differences of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) for ground

Global gridded technical hexachlorocyclohexane usage inventories using a global cropland as a surrogate

A global cropland data set with 1° × 1° longitude and latitude resolution has been created by using an advanced very high resolution radiometer global land database with 1 km × 1 km resolution. By

Atmospheric movements of lindane (gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane) from canola fields planted with treated seed.

It was estimated that between 12 and 30% of the gamma-HCH applied as canola seed treatment may volatilize and be released to the atmosphere, which would create an atmospheric loading of 66.4 to 188.8 Mg for the 6-wk period following planting.

Impacts of lindane usage in the Canadian prairies on the Great Lakes ecosystem. 1. Coupled atmospheric transport model and modeled concentrations in air and soil.

Model-predicted air concentrations and seasonal trends agreed well with measured data over the same time period for several background sites operated under the Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network and air temperature was shown to play a key role on surface-air exchange dynamics of gamma-HCH.

Differential Toxicity and Environmental Fates of Hexachlorocyclohexane Isomers

The differential environmental fates and toxicities of the various hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomers including lindane and isomers in the technical mixture will be the focus of this review. HCHs
