Sedimentation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in limnic and marine environments

Abstract [en]

The sedimentation rates of PCBs in two southern Swedish lakes and a coastal bay in the southern Baltic were determined using sediment traps. The rates were similar at the three locations and ranged from 1.2 to 10.9 μg PCBs m−2 month−1 during summer. The source for PCBs in sedimenting material is probably the atmosphere. PCB concentrations in sedimenting material were higher than those in surface sediment. This may be due to recirculation of sediment-bound PCBs.

The reproducibility of collecting by sediment traps was examined by deploying duplicate traps simultaneously. There were no significant differences in PCB concentration of sedimenting material between traps placed in duplicate. Concentrations of PCBs in the different collecting vessel was similar within one trap.
