about

This book provides a description of FANTOM, an ocean model, that has been developed to investigate the fate of selected POPs in the North Sea. The main focus of the model is on quantifying the distribution of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and their aquatic pathways. The model was applied for the southern North Sea and tested by studying the behavior of g-HCH, a-HCH and PCB 153 in sea water.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The findings represent the best scientific basis presently available for assessing and controlling the spreading and fate of organic pollutants in the North Sea. Such an approach provides a valuable aid for national and European marine environmental policymakers. Moreover, this approach can be applied to endangered shelf seas in other parts of the world." (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 87 (7), 2007)
