Roadside contamination (of air, soils and organisms) by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) was examined in an arable field and a mature forest (central France). Measured contents accounted for minute fractions of the cumulative vehicular exhaust emissions. The fate of vehicular PAHs was affected by many factors, including: atmospheric load dispersal… CONTINUE READING
