Urban Sources and Loadings of Toxics to Lake Ontario from an Integrated Measurements and Modeling Approach

This project is studying the influence of the Toronto urban area on   the input of toxic chemicals to Lake Ontario, both through water   discharge and runoff, and through direct atmospheric deposition. The   project will work closely with large efforts to develop lake-wide   contaminant loading and mass balance efforts to incorporate   information about the urban influence. The project is studying   polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers   (PBDEs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and synthetic musk   compounds.     (Lake Ontario); (PCB); (PCB's); (PCBs); (polychlorinated biphenyls);   (polychlorinated biphenyl); (PBDE's); (PBDEs); (PBDE);   (polybrominated diphenyl ethers); (polybrominated diphenyl ether);   (PAH's); (PAHs); (PAH); (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons);   (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon); (synthetic musk compound);   (synthetic musk compounds); (synthetic musk fragrances); (synthetic   musk fragrance); (POP's); (POPs); (POP); (persistent organic   pollutants); (persistent organic pollutant); (COC's); (COCs); (COC);   (chemicals of concern); (chemicals of emerging concern)
