Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in remote mountain lake waters.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), including alkylated and sulfur derivatives, were identified and measured in the waters from three European remote mountain lakes during both ice-free and ice covered periods. The measured concentrations were in the same order in all three lakes (700-1100 pg/l). The PAH patterns in both dissolved and particulate water… CONTINUE READING
