The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the North Sea Multiple Year Model Simulations of γ-HCH, α-HCH and PCB 153 /

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are harmful to human health and to the environment. Their fate in the marine environment is not yet fully understood. An ocean model (FANTOM) has been developed to investigate the fate of selected POPs in the North Sea. The main focus of the model is on quantifyi...
