Atmospheric Sources of PCB Congeners

While PCBs are semi-volatile and commonly measured in air throughout   the globe, atmospheric sources of PCBs are almost completely   undefined. This project will expand the knowledge of the sources and   distribution of PCBs in air through a major field study coupled with   atmospheric modeling.     (PCB); (PCB's); (PCBs); (polychlorinated biphenyls);   (polychlorinated biphenyl); (organochlorides); (flame retardants);   (persistent organic pollutant); (persistent organic pollutants);   (POPs); (POP); (POP's); (toxic organic); (toxic organics);   (Indiana); (Illinois); (Chicago); (chemical of concern); (chemicals   of concern)
