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.
