Abstract

The high PCB levels in particulate matter in the Belgian and Dutch coastal zones decreased with increasing distances from the coast. In spite of the higher levels of the PCB contamination in the biotic compartments of the ecosystem (fish, zooplankton), it clearly appears that the PCBs are mainly located in suspended matter (included phytoplankton) and in sediments. According to the amount of PCBs transported by Scheldt, Meuse and Rhine rivers, the input flux of PCBs to the North Sea has been estimated. The output atmosphere PCB flux has been approach by means of a vaporization model
