In this study, twenty-four core sediment samples were collected from monitoring stations in the East China Sea (ECS) to investigate the spatial and temporal distributions of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and their potential sources. In surface sediment samples (the top 0-3 cm segment), the concentrations of Σ8PBDEs (sum of BDE15, 28, 47, 99, 100, 153, 154 and 183) and BDE209 were between 0.03 and 1.26 ng g(-1) d.w., and 0.20 and 3.15 ng g(-1) d.w., respectively. The PBDEs… CONTINUE READING
