  1. Dispersion and transport paths of toxic persistent organochlorines to the Arctic : levels and consequences.

    Article - En anglais

    Most people still consider the Arctic as one of the last non-polluted regions of the world.

    However, recent studies have shown that the levels of organochlorines such as chlorinated pesticides, dibenzofurans and dibenzo-p-dioxins are surprisingly high in biota such as seals and polar bears from the Norwegian and Canadian Arctic.

    A short review is given of our knowledge concerning levels and sources as well as consequences of the presence of persistent toxic organochlorines in the Arctic.
