How long does ittake for organic contaminant concentrations to decline in the Arctic after regulatory measures have succeeded in reducing emissions globally? This question is explored by using a zonally averaged global distribution model to estimate the lag-time between the period when emissions begin to decrease and when a decline in a chemical's Arctic Contamination Potential is observed. A long lag is problematic, as contaminant concentrations can continue to increase well after a potential… CONTINUE READING
