Long-term residue of DDT compounds in forest soils in Maine.

Abstract

Soils in forests sprayed aerially with DDT in 1958-1967 have been sampled for persistence of residues at intervals since then and most recently in 1993. Results of all the samples are presented and show persistence through 30 years, with evidence of decline of residue only in the third decade. The metabolites of DDT--DDE and DDD--increased over time, each… (More)
