The Influence of Physical and Chemical Processes on Contaminant Transport into and within the Arctic
The Arctic region is a seemingly pristine, remote environment,
yet there is increasing evidence that it is greatly impacted
by global pollution. It is a highly sensitive ecosystem.
Compounds found in the Arctic are of concern not just because
they are transported long distances, but also because
they are bioaccumulated and biomagnified in the food chain.
Consequently, an understanding of pollution pathways to
and within the Arctic is of special concern.
