Organochlorine pesticide (OCP) cycling was studied in the area of Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, over 3 days in summer with high temporal (4 h-means) and spatial (3 sites distanced 3-6 km) resolutions. Elevated levels of DDX compounds (i.e. o,p'- and p,p'-isomers of DDT, DDE and DDD, 44-74 pg m(-3) at the urban sites and 27 pg m(-3) as a background level), HCH (α-, β- and γ-isomers, 52-70 vs. 147 pg m(-3)), HCB (34-48 vs. <0.1 pg m(-3)) and pentachlorobenzene (6.8-9.9 vs. 6.0 pg m(-3… Expand
Occurrence, enantiomeric signature and ecotoxicological risk assessment of HCH isomers and DDT metabolites in the sediments of Kabul River, Pakistan
TLDR
The vertical contamination profile of DDTs was found in order of 20–30 cm <10–20 cm >0–10 cm, indicated that the residue levels of DDT gradually decreased after it was banned, and indicated long-term biodegradation of parent DDT. Expand
Organochlorine pesticides in residential soils and sediments within two main agricultural areas of northwest Mexico: Concentrations, enantiomer compositions and potential sources.
TLDR
Chiral compounds were nonracemic in soils and sediments and indicated enantioselective microbial degradation of (+)α-HCH, (-)trans-chlordane, -)cis- chlordane and (+)o,p'-DDT. Expand
Atmospheric Occurrence of Organochlorine Pesticides and Inhalation Cancer Risk in Urban Areas at Southeast Brazil.
Organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) have been produced for almost a century and some of them are still used, even after they have been proved to be toxic, persistent, bioaccumulative and prone toExpand
Organochlorine pesticides, polybrominated diphenyl ethers and polychlorinated biphenyls in surficial sediments of the Awash River Basin, Ethiopia
TLDR
This study provided the first comprehensive information on organohalogenated compounds’ (OCs’) occurrences, spatial distributions, and ecological risks in sediments of the Awash River Basin and adds important first-hand data to the field of fresh water ecology. Expand
Changes in Urban Gas-Phase Persistent Organic Pollutants During the COVID-19 Lockdown in Barcelona
TLDR
Air quality improvements observed during the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus disease lockdown and prior to this period could be related to lower generation of solid urban residues and the subsequent decrease of urban waste incineration, as well as the strong reduction of traffic mobility during this period.

Atmospheric Deposition of Organochlorine Pesticides (OCPs): Species, Levels, Diurnal and Seasonal Fluctuations, Transfer Velocities
  • G. Eker, Y. Tasdemir

  • Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology
  • 2018
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to determine the total atmospheric deposition fluxes of OCPs in a semi-rural area in Bursa, Turkey and found that the flux values during daytime periods were sometimes higher. Expand
Seasonal variations of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in air samples during day and night periods in Bursa, Turkey
Abstract The goal of the present work was to investigate the seasonal variations of organochlorine pesticide (OCP) levels in Bursa, Turkey. The sampling site was a campus and considered as aExpand
Persistent organic pollutants in the Scheldt estuary: environmental distribution and bioaccumulation.
TLDR
Sediment POP loadings and tissue concentrations were poorly correlated, indicating that a simple linear or non-linear relationship is insufficient to describe this relationship, possible caused by the complexity of the bioaccumulation processes and the variability in exposure. Expand
Diurnal Variations of Air-Soil Exchange of Semivolatile Organic Compounds (PAHs, PCBs, OCPs, and PBDEs) in a Central European Receptor Area.
TLDR
In general, soils were found to be a source of PAHs, high chlorinated PCBs, the majority of OCPs and PBDEs, and a sink for the low chlorination PCBs and γ-hexachlorocyclohexane, and predictions based on the assumption that absorption is the dominant process were in good agreement with the measurements.

Organochlorine pesticides in soils of Mexico and the potential for soil-air exchange.
TLDR
Soil-air fugacity fractions showed that some soils areNet recipients of DDTs from the atmosphere, while other soils are net sources, and endosulfan was undergoing net deposition at most sites as it is a currently used pesticide. Expand
Soil-air exchange of organochlorine pesticides in the Southern United States.
TLDR
Chiral analysis showed that enantioselective degradation of (+) or (-) o, p'-DDT in soil was accompanied by enrichment or depletion of the corresponding enantiomers in the overlying air, although there appeared to be some dilution by racemic o,p'- DDT from regional air transport. Expand
Effects of Environmental Factors on Organochlorine Pesticide Residues in Soils of the Guanting Reservoir Area, China
TLDR
Topsoil samples from 56 sites around the Guanting Reservoir, China, were measured for HCH and DDT concentrations, providing some insight into the effects of environmental conditions such as soil formation, agricultural cultivation, nutrient enrichment, and other anthropogenic activities on the degradation of OCPs in soils.

Influence of different emission sources on atmospheric organochlorine patterns in Germany
Abstract The concentrations of organochlorine parent substances such as p,p′-DDT (2,2-bis(chlorophenyl)-1,1,1-trichloroethane) and lindane (γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH)) as well as of theirExpand
Spatial and seasonal variations of organochlorine compounds in air on an urban-rural transect across Tianjin, China.
TLDR
The spatial and seasonal variations of atmospheric organochlorine compounds (OCs) concentrations was investigated at six sites on an urban-rural transect in Tianjin, China from July 2006 to June 2008 using XAD-based passive air samplers to elucidate that the urban area could be their emission source.

Measurement of DDT fluxes from a historically treated agricultural soil in Canada.
TLDR
Soil-to-air fluxes were calculated from air concentration gradients and turbulent exchange coefficients determined from micrometeorological measurements, indicating that the soil was a net source to the background air. Expand
Air-water gas exchange of organochlorine pesticides in Taihu Lake, China.
TLDR
The correlation between air concentrations and ambient air temperature indicated that the current sources of o,p'-DDT and alpha-endosulfan were from land; alpha-HCH and chlordane were mainly from the lake; and these compounds were transported through the atmosphere from land sources and deposited into the lake.

An assessment of air-soil exchange of polychlorinated biphenyls and organochlorine pesticides across central and southern Europe.
TLDR
The soil-air transfer of PCBs and organochlorine pesticides was found to be site-specific and dependent on the physicochemical properties of the contaminant in question, the soil properties, the historical contamination record and a site's vicinity to sources, and the local meteorological conditions.
