Dechlorane (mirex), Dechlorane Plus (DP), Dechlorane 602 (Dec602), Dechlorane 603 (Dec603), Dechlorane 604 (Dec604), and Chlordecone (Kepone) were analyzed in 16 sediment cores collected in 2007 from the Great Lakes of North America. Results show that Lake Ontario sediments have accumulated mirex, DP, Dec602 and Dec604 in amounts 1 to 2 orders of magnitude higher than other Great Lakes. The chemical inventory decreases log-linearly with increasing latitude (N) and longitude (W) of the sampling… CONTINUE READING
