Global Aquatic Pssive Sampling (AQUA-GAPS): Using Passive Samplers to Monitor POPs in the Waters of the World

A passive sampling network would provide important information about   the disrubution, long term trends, and wildife exposure to POPs. The   authors believe that "there are major benifits in starting global   aquatic passive sampling (AQUA-GAPS) and propose the phased   development of an AQUA-GAPS network of stations.  The program could   be started by initating monitioring with PE samples at accessible   and relatively well studied key locations e.g. the Great lakes, U.S.   east coast, baltic, North Seas, Mediterranean or South China Seas...   The list of POPs thi be analyzed would be those redily detected by   low resolutionGC-MS and for which analytical standards are readily   avaailable (e.g. legacy chlorated pesticides, lindane, endosulfan,   selected PCB congeners, chlorobenzene, tetra- and pentatBDEs)."
